Fenced in a .5 acre yard

Fenced in a .5 acre yard. Half of fence is 6 ft privacy fence, the other half is 5 ft chain link.

*Options I considered for this project:

Tried to put fence in myself. Project was above my skill level so I interviewed 3 contractors.

*Questions and unexpected events that arose during the project:

Did not know property lines would be so hard to find. Concrete took longer than expected to set. Chain link was difficult to stretch.

* Cost Comments:

Privacy and chain link differed in price per foot. After negotiation, we were able to agree on price as well as an upgrade to a higher quality privacy fence.

*My motivation to do this project:

To give dogs a place to play without supervision and to upgrade the look of my back yard.

    Nice job. The combination of chain link and wood work nicely.
  • Did the option of mixing chain link fense and wood fence reduce your material costs? What factor was the decision based on?

    Nice clean line on the wood fence. Your contractor did a fine job.

    Are you planning on staining? What color? This is more work but will preserve the wood longer.
