3 Rail Vinyl Fencing vs Weed Wacker
I have been waiting for the last year for contractors to finish the house that has become our neighbors. Now that they have moved in talk of fencing has come up which is required by our CCR's. Anyhow the reason I waited until they were in was because I wanted to put in Vinyl and was hoping to share the cost. Well of course they have different ideas on landscaping and fencing. One of their main concerns with Vinyl is that if you hit a vinyl fence with a weed wacker it will actually cut the vinyl. He is actually a landscaper so one would assume he is right but I have never heard of this. Vinyl is just about everywhere here because everyone like the no-maintenance attribute of the fencing. He wants to do wood and I have seen enough rotten wood fencing for a lifetime. I know I could replace the wood posts with metal and just use wooden planks but then you still have to paint (if you want a white fence) the planks. Has anyone heard if vinyl can take weedwacker abuse or is it really that flimsy? Other suggestions for a property line fence that serves no real purpose but marking the property line? I will probably attach hog wire to the bottom of whatever fencing to keep my dogs on the right side of said fence but that will only be after they have proven the need.
