There are different kinds of fences: wood, vinyl, chain link, ornamental steel, ornamental aluminum, wrought iron, etc. Wood fences come in a variety of lengths. Vinyl fences are easy to install and low maintenance. Chain link fences are the most economical and most commonly used. Ornamental steel is used to make the shortest fences in height. Ornamental aluminum is used to make the highest fences. Wrought iron is the strongest, but is also the most expensive.
A fence constructed of wood is typically considered a privacy fence, as it prevents onlookers from seeing over the fence. These fences can be made of cedar, pine or redwood and are sometimes covered with decorative items to give them a more appealing look. Fences made of vinyl resin look similar to wooden fences, but they are cheaper and available in a wider variety of colors. Chain link fences are made of steel mesh. Ornamental fences are often used to enhance the appearance of a property. Ornamental aluminum fences are very light in weight and require little maintenance.
Once you choose the type of fence you need or material, the rest is much easier to narrow down. But if there is a specific feature that you are looking for and is a non negotiable it may be best to know what that is and which types of fence offers that before. Not all fences offer the same features. For example if you need privacy, a vinyl fence is highly recommended as opposed to a chain link fence. But is cost is an issue to you and you're on a budget, a chain link fence is much cheaper. There may be some things you need to compromise for. However there are also some adjustments that can be done. For the example just used, if a vinyl fence is not in budget but a chain link fence is and you still require privacy, you can opt for an additional covering that contractors can provide for the chain link fence. It will not be 100% comparable to a private fence, but much better than not having it.
It is always strongly advised to contact a fence professional to be able to discuss the multiple vast opportunities available. Many fence companies will be able to help you narrow it down to the exact fence that you need.

Most contractors will visit your property to discuss the possibilities and provide a quote. When they visually are able to see the entire layout, they can provide a much better suggestion. You can always ask for visuals or examples. They usually have photos and videos of past projects that they have completed, if you need any source of inspiration.
And of course if the completed fence is lacking something or not quite right, you can always have it fixed or adjusted to exactly what you need. Just remember to make sure that the fence is providing you features of what you need, which is most likely security and safety.
