The Benefits of Decorative Fences

Ornamental Wrought Iron Fence

There are many excellent reasons to install a residential fence on your property. However, if aesthetic appeal tops your list of priorities when it comes to your fencing, then there’s nothing that quite compares to a decorative wrought fence. Whether your home is in Calgary, Kelowna or Spruce Grove, a decorative fence will enhance the beauty of your yard and garden.



Wrought iron is a metal that’s highly malleable—the word wrought literally means to work—and when heated it can be worked into a seemingly endless number of shapes and forms. Wrought iron fences can therefore be simple and streamlined or ornate and elegant. They can be embellished with curlicues and swirls and topped with ornate spires. Or not. The choice is entirely up to you.



One of the most stunning aspects of any wrought iron fence is its capacity to make such an attractive backdrop for yards of all types. Beautifully landscaped gardens are embellished by an ornamental wrought iron enclosure as a backdrop. Pools and patios are likewise elevated in aesthetic appeal when paired with this type of residential fence. 



Homes in Calgary, Kelowna and Spruce Grove often have beautiful views. Obstructing such vistas with fencing is a shame and entirely unnecessary. If you want to maintain your view but require fencing, wrought iron designs are a suitable option. Because they have narrow posts with wider gaps between slats, you can see through them and thereby enjoy the surrounding scenery with ease. Conversely, if the openness of wrought iron fencing leaves you longing for privacy, you can simply plant shrubs or trees at the periphery.



Sure, wrought iron fences add aesthetic appeal to yards and gardens, but what about security? Can this type of residential fence also protect your home from vandals and thieves? The simple answer is yes. In fact, wrought iron fencing is an excellent choice of enclosure if security is a concern. Because the slats are arranged vertically, they’re near impossible to climb. Another layer of difficulty in this regard is added if the fence design incorporates spires. And unlike other fencing materials like chain link and wood, wrought iron is almost impossible for an intruder to cut.



On top of all the other benefits that come with using wrought iron as your fencing material, it’s also got an incredibly long lifespan. With proper care, this material can last a lifetime or longer.
