When you own a piece of nature’s artistry in the form of a Colorado ranch, or are looking into purchasing ranch real estate, you want to enjoy the maximum benefits of your good fortune! Your ranch home reflects your style and provides you with all the creature comforts you desire to truly make it your “castle” while also bringing you pristine views of the unparalleled landscape. Whether your view is of majestic mountains, flowing waters, trees lolling in the glory of their seasons, nothing should interfere with your panoramic scene, including your choice of fencing.
The Crowning Touch: Fencing for Your Colorado Ranch
"Good fences make good neighbors."
Moving past the old style barbed wire, there are numerous benefits to installing fencing on your ranch – defining your property lines, protecting your livestock, and enhancing security. Laying out your fence’s path is also key – try to avoid very rocky areas, steep embankments, and really rough or forested terrain. There are many beautiful fencing options that elegantly maintain the integrity of your property’s landscape while providing the benefits of well-fenced property.
- Wood rail fences preserve and even enhance your view, and hold up well over time. If there are portions of your ranch land requiring more secure mesh screening, that can be incorporated into this style in an elegant manner. Strategic Wall & Fence Company provides quality craftsmanship and evaluates and installs the type of fencing best suited for your property.
- Another great choice is the aesthetically pleasing wood post combined with safe and durable piping. This gorgeous design has graced many high-end ranches, and its textured, grainy wood posts paired with sleek, smooth piping flow beautifully along your land lines.
- All-metal pipe rail fences provide a durable, long-lasting way to create solid and beautiful land borders. A variety of colors are available with corral-type fencing and this fence requires virtually no maintenance.
It’s a good idea to study the pros and cons of various fencing styles before making this significant but worthwhile investment. Expect to pay between $1,100 to $1,800 per 100 linear feet for your fencing choice. But keep in mind that after you’ve invested so much of your dreams, heart, and money into a ranch, it’s worth every penny to have a well-crafted structure that will be safe, sensible, durable, and beautiful for decades to come!
