Good Neighbor style fence in Port Orford Cedar

At a population of 155,000 residents, Salem, Oregon is the third largest city in the state.  Salem’s name is derived from the Arabic and Hebrew words for peace (Shalom and Salam, respectively). It appears aptly named, judging from our experience providing Salem, Oregon fencing. We’ve found that residents of our capital city really are “good neighbors,” so it makes sense they should select that fencing style as well. Let’s take a look at what goes into good neighbor privacy fences.

Portland Goes Crazy for Halloween Fence Decoration

October 23rd, 2013

Halloween_20081031_003Halloween is around the corner and it is never too late to add fence decoration. Decorating picket fences in your front yard with spooky décor helps give your neighborhood a festive feel. Turning your front yard into a haunted hollow or even a graveyard is a fun activity for kids and adults alike. In fact, if a graveyard is on your mind, you have to start with the fence, as no real graveyard is complete without one. If that broken down look is what you are after, you can consider demolishing inexpensive garden trolls; spray paint them, and break them up a bit for a unique Portland All Hallows Eve decoration. If you already have a fence, just add cobwebs, drape spooky blue or purple lights, and scatter some fake tombstones (homemade or store bought) in front for the final touch.

Decorating your backyard can help enhance a Halloween party or late season BBQ under your patio cover, but it also takes some planning and organizing to get it right. If you really are not into the cobwebs and tombstones this year, add decorative lighting, luminary candles, and autumn bounty décor—corn stalks, squash, pumpkins, and so forth.

August 1st, 2013

Cedar Split Rail Fence

Salem, Oregon is a popular area for split rail fencing. Why? Because Oregon’s capital is a hub for the local farming community—it’s where area farmers bring their crops for food processing. And when they need to buy fencing material (or any other provisions for their properties), Willamette Valley farmers often head to Salem.  When it comes to farming and fencing, spit rail fencing has long been the first choice.
