Utility fencing can be a chain-link fence or a chain-wire fence; it can also be called a cyclone fence, hurricane fence, or diamond-mesh fence.
It is less expensive than either wood or vinyl fencing, and is relatively transparent as opposed to the vinyl, wood, or aluminum types of fencing.
Chain link is a good choice for keeping pets and small children in the yard and intruders out. This type of fencing is made from galvanized steel wire, the fence material itself is referred to as “fabric.” Chain-link fencing comes in 50 foot length rolls 3 to 12 feet in height.
If you don’t like the silvery look of the bare fence, it’s available with a weather-resistant vinyl coating, usually green or black. Single and double prefabricated gates are available to complete the project.If you are fencing in a large area, chain link style fencing could be a good way to go.
