As a homeowner in South Africa, a fence that goes around the boundary of your property is absolutely essential for deterring criminals, protecting your property, and keeping your pets in. But when you start looking at fencing options, you may find that you are overwhelmed with the options and are not too sure what to choose.

In this article, we’ll provide you with some of the most popular choices in fencing solutions so that you can make the right choice for your home.


Steel is a strong and highly popular choice of material for fencing. Its origins go back many decades to when wrought iron steel fences were all the rage. Craftsmen were able to create completely custom designs for their clients. The modern version of this would be steel fencing, and it features pickets and rails. It could never be solid because of the weight. And because of the material, this fencing option is very expensive.


Vinyl fencing is still a relatively new phenomenon. It was brought about to be a cheaper alternative to the traditional wooden fence that also required less maintenance. These fences are very durable and still provide you with that classic appeal associated with wooden fences. However, extreme weather may cause major damage to vinyl fences.

Wooden Fencing

From the humble picket fence to bamboo screens to full-size cedar fences, wooden fencing solutions have been used to mark property boundaries for centuries. Wooden fences can be very appealing, and they can easily be painted a different colour should you want to. That being said, wooden fences do require a fair amount of maintenance depending on the type of wood. 

PVC-Coated Mesh Fence

There has been a massive rise in the popularity of PVC-coated mesh fences, especially the EasyView option offered by Betafence. This fence is very strong and durable and will last for many years. It is easy to install and maintain, and even someone with no experience in fencing can install this fence on their property. There is anti-climb technology that deters potential burglars.
