Vinyl post and rail fence.  This is a 4-foot-tall Vinyl post-and-rail fence — it is very attractive!

This fence is legal for swimming pool enclosures when installed with the Boca-compliant green or black vinyl wire. This particular vinyl fence is manufactured by Country Estates vinyl products. Posts are 5 X 5″ sq., and the rails are 1.5″ x 5.5″ X 16 ft.

Notice that this customer also installed an 8-foot double gate to allow easy access for large equipment and lawn mowers. This style is also a great choice for fencing in your yard for your children, dogs and other pets. All posts are set in concrete, so this fence has years of longevity.

Dog-eared: Not always a bad thing!

30 Jun

Floyd n BruteyWhen you think of the term “dog-eared”, you might envision the family pet Fido, but most likely you will relate it to the ratty condition of a book:

“A dog ear is a phrase that refers to the folded down corner of a book page. The name arises from the fact that wolves’ ears stand erect while the ears of many breeds of dog flop over.  A dog ear can serve as a bookmark.  While generally frowned upon by those that want to preserve books in their original condition, it is particularly common in use on paperbacks which are designed to be cheaper and more harshly used than hardcovers. Sometimes, it is also used to keep sheets of paper together, in the absence of a stapler or paper clip.  The phrase dates back at least to the late 18th century.”

Picket DogEarBut when WE refer to “dog-eared”, it is a quaint style of fencing, often used in wooden fences, but also available in PVC Vinyl.  Dog-ear fences are popular choices in privacy fencing, and also as a rustic-looking, country-style picket fence.
