How Secure is Ornamental Fencing?

Ornamental fencing may look nice, but can it offer your home security? Read on to find out.

When it comes to selecting the right fence for your home, it can be hard to balance between security and curb appeal. While you might not be interested into making your front yard look like a maximum security prison, you are likely wary of the idea of installing ornamental fencing. However, depending on a few important factors, ornamental fences can be surprisingly safe.


A common misconception about ornamental fencing is that it is all looks and no structure. But, with the right material, you can have a beautiful fence that is also strong enough to protect your home. We offer lighter-but-sturdy wood and PVC vinyl fences as well as durable aluminum and steel designs.


The security of a fence is tied as much to where and how it is installed as it is what it’s made of. Of course, you should always seek out an experienced professional to install your fence. But, also take careful consideration of how you would like it placed. Whether or not you share a fence with a neighbor, you might still want full perimeter coverage. But, if you are considering an ornamental fence more for design than security, you may only want partial coverage, such as at the end of a long driveway to deter unknown vehicles. In any case, always keep safety and security at the top of your priority list.


Sometimes, you’re concerned about an ornamental fence being breached or climbed but would still rather not resort to unsightly extremes. In all likelihood, such extremes like barbed wire fencing are illegal in your area. Fortunately, there are other security measures that you can take to assist your ornamental fence. Access control security systems with keypad entry and video surveillance are just some examples of ways you can discourage criminals while keeping the beauty and function of your ornamental fence.
