Great work, great service
Kathleen - Southlake, TX
Texas Best Fence and Patio installed my new board-on-board fence in August. It was hand-built down to the last nail and provides both great beauty and a great degree of privacy. The installers were skilled and meticulous, and my sales rep, Angela Sellers, handled the logistics seamlessly and courteously and kept me informed every step of the way. 10/10, highly recommended!

We specialize in custom wood fences designed to complement the look and feel of your property. We prefer to install metal posts set in concrete for support, but we can also use wooden posts as your budget and desires dictate. If you’re not sure what you want, we suggest a beautiful pre-stained cedar wood fence that will last for years.
Other materials that are requested by homeowners are also available, but Texas Best Fence will always talk honestly and fairly about methods and materials that should be avoided or require special treatment. Although wood is and always has been a natural product, there can be a great difference in the quality of wood for outdoor use. Some wood types are just better suited to natural weathering processes than others.
A wood privacy fence can also increase the value of your property. If you’ve decided to fence your yard, make sure that you know the fence height rules for your area.
Fence Height rules
in Southlake TX
If you live in a subdivision or a development, check the deed restrictions before choosing a fence. Most subdivisions have rules and regulations regarding the materials and height of fences. Some don’t allow fences in the front but allow them in the backyard.
Your neighbors are another important consideration. A boundary fence may be a shared responsibility with your neighbor. Check the laws pertaining to property fences before going any further. Once you’re sure about the rules and regulations, it’s important to talk to your neighbors that may be affected by a new fence. A sit-down meeting usually works better than a letter to keep communication open and friendly.
Let’s say everything is a go and you’re ready to decide on the type of fence you want for your property. Choosing the height of your fence might be a hard decision. Here are a few guidelines you can start with.
3 feet – front yard
4 feet – pool fence
6 feet – backyard
8 feet – deer fence
The height of your fence will likely depend on your family’s lifestyle, needs, and budget.
