A high fence with limited horizontal rails (so people can not climb over using rails) can offer some degree of security.

You should also remember to review your present or planned landscaping choices and maintain clear line of sight to all areas of property, especially around swimming pools. Do not provide any areas that are obstructed from view from your home. We recommend:

  • Aluminum Ornamental Fences (especially the commercial or guardian lines)
  • Vinyl
  • Chain link

  • Post and rail w/ welded wire screening.
  • Picket style.
