Tips for Building Your Fence on a Slope

Tips for Building Your Fence on a Slope

Building your fence on a slope is easier than you think!

Is one of the items on your fall home improvement list a brand new fence? If your yard has a slope, it might seem like an impossible task! However, building your fence on a slope is easier than you think when you work with the pros at Hercules Fence of Northern Virginia.

Choose a Contoured Fence

If your yard has an uneven slope, following the contours of your yard might be the best option. The horizontal rails of your new fence will follow the slope of your yard in a smooth, straight line that is parallel with the ground. Traditional fences would have horizontal rails that are level to the ground, not parallel. Contoured fences are ideal for fences in yards with a small slope. Contoured fences work especially well with a scalloped fence design since the panels will complement the slope of the yard.

Steep Slope, Stepped Fence, Can’t Lose

If you have a very steep slope in your yard, following the gentle contours of your land might not be possible. Stepped fences are installed so that each fence panel will be slightly lower or higher than the previous one, so the finished product looks like stairs. Stepped fences are very common in sloped yards and can be easily and quickly installed once the posts are cut to the proper height.

The main difficulty that a stepped fence presents is the gap underneath each of the steps. You can add planters along the length of the fence or add other design features to block the space if you are concerned about a pet or child crawling underneath. Experiment with other planting and gardening options to find a use of space that feels right for you and your landscape. Once you fill in the space, your stepped fence will perfectly complement your home and yard.
