We have a fairly large property and looking into getting a fence for our family (primarily our Great Pyrnees dog) would be ideal for our situation.  However, each quote we had received was well over $15K.  While this may not be in our budget as of now, fences do offer that perfect boundary for your backyard.  Having a fence isn’t the only way to get privacy outside though!  Trees and shrubs offer similar privacy levels at a fraction of the cost.
