I have always dreamed of a house and a beautiful fence in front of it. Fences are classic, easy to construct, and a nice-looking way to complete the look of your home or garden.
To be honest, I believe yards and gardens without a fence look somehow incomplete. Yet, apart from their decorative role, fences also serve to delineate spaces, offer privacy, and protect the property from unwanted intruders out.
If building a commercial fence is very expensive for you right now, or you just doubt that you will have it built in the particular way, theme, or style you have in mind, you always have another option-do it yourself!
Wood pallets should be the first option of DIY fence builders, as they are the perfect building block, are abundant almost everywhere, and are a budget-friendly option(even free at times!).
Building such a fence can also be an opportunity for beginners to try out their skills too. Additionally, these fences are also great for small livestock. So, if you have some free time and wooden pallets, you can now design the perfect fence!
Of course, you’ll benefit a lot from having some tools and materials like nails, wire gauze, and heavy duty staples.
Here are several reasons why you should try pallet fences:
- Pallet fences are durable, and resistant to harsh weather conditions and frequent vibration.
- Woodworking is much easier than metal-working. You can buy ready-to-go wooden pallets and just join them later.
- They are very convenient and can be built according to your needs.
- You don’t need brand new pallets. If you are a lover of rustic appearances, buy old ones at a reduced price.
However, you should also keep in mind that pallet fences are not very secure, so anyone can easily climb over or break through them. Additionally, they might not be the best option if you want to protect your place from trespassers, primarily because you’ll need something stronger, taller, and with less gaps.
