  1. I want to make sure that Ig et the right fencing for my home. It makes sense that I would want to consider something like tubular fencing for my home! It's nice that it can be so sturdy and durable. That way, I don't need to worry about replacing it any time soon.

  2. I like that you talked about how practical picket fencing is. As you said, they can resist warping and rot which is why they are low maintenance. I hope that I can find a fence company that can install this for our home since I am on a limited budget. We just need fencing because we have a dog now, and it would keep it from running to the road.
