Choosing any component for your home has to be done with a lot of care and attention. So when you are talking about choosing front yard fences, here are the 10 questions that you can ask:

- Metallic fences for a very contemporary home and so on.
- How much time do I need to devote for its maintenance?
A fence has to be maintained by way of regular cleaning, painting, polishing and so on. Certain fences do not need much by way of daily or frequent maintenance. A sturdy wooden fence will need regular maintenance and a vinyl fence will need to be checked for mildew almost every day.

- How will it fit the rest of the landscape?
A front yard will have gardens, flower beds, lawns and so on. You may like to pay attention to the fence that will fit in with such landscape. If you have a garden filled with colorful flowers then you may like to showcase the same with a simple, white fence that allows a view from the outside as well.
