Best Type of Fence for Yards

Dog Ear Good Neighbor Fences are the Standard in Sacramento!

We see a lot of variation in the styles of fence we see in the Sacramento area as many of these fences have been replaced numerous times over the last 50+ years. Areas that are older like Midtown Sacramento, Land Park, and East Sacramento have some unique wood fence styles with kickboards and caps on top, as well as a lot of short non-privacy wire and chain link fences. Other areas like Carmichael have quite a variation of dog ear fences that vary a little as homeowners replaced these wood fences and gates as weekend projects over the decades. Then there are newer areas like Natomas, Laguna, Elg Grove, Rancho Cordova, and Folsom. These areas many times are replacing their fences for the first time so these homeowners want to replace with the same traditional dog ear good neighbor fences they have now, but with better quality. This leads us to the question that everyone in Sacramento asks us---
