3 Ways You Can Deal With Uneven Terrain When Installing A New Wood Fence

Installing a fence around your home can be a good investment. Unfortunately, not all yards have even elevations, so you may have to solve problems with leveling out sections of your new fence. This can be done by doing things like installing masonry steps or making the fence follow the elevation. Here are three ways to easily deal with the elevation problems you may have when installing a new fence:

1. Using Stone And Masonry For A Stepped Fence Design

Stone and masonry can be a good solution to deal with uneven terrain and give your fence a solid foundation, which can be good for animal enclosures. The base of the fence can be stone or brick and follow the terrain. The top of the stone can be level sections that can make it easy to install a wood fence with a stepped design that gradually rises as it goes up a hill side.

2. Installing The Wood Fence To Follow The Elevations Of Terrain

A wood fence can also give you many different options for the design. Rather than a step design, you may want to consider a fence that follows the elevation of the terrain. This can be done with curved designs and a custom installation where all the pieces are cut individually.  The bottom of the boards can be cut to exactly match the contour of your yard. Doing this will help cover any open space at the bottom of your fence.

3. Using Wood And Landscaping Features To Cover Bottom Gaps In Fencing

There are also many different wood features that you can use to cover the bottom of your fence. This can be something as simple as lattice that you install along the fence line and staple to the fence. There are also other landscaping designs that you may want to consider, such as using planters to cover the gaps of the fence. This can be done with features like planters that are made of landscaping timbers. You may even want to make the planters as the foundation of your fence for a stepped design.

These are some tips that can help you deal with elevation problems that you may have when you have a new wood fence installed. If you are ready to install a new fence around your home, contact a fence contractor and talk with them about some of these ideas for dealing with the terrain around your home.
