    We were planning on putting a wood fence in this spring so this is timely! Any suggestions for finding a good supplier? Would any reputable fencing company have his new material?

      Thanks for the email. That’s exciting!

      You might have to do a little local research to see who is good in your area. Try a google search but good word of mouth recommendations never go astray. See if they have a catalog or some gallery photos to see what range of fences they can do. Most companies handle a wide range of materials so you should be all right.

    Maybe driving around a town looking at other peoples will give you an idea what you like. If others have one then it should be available close.
    If it is one you “really” like you could ask them where they got it. Let’s them know theirs looks good.
