Secure horse fence is essential for any paddock or ranch in order to keep horses safely contained, to prevent injury and avoid third party accidents. The fence also needs to prevent any domestic animals entering the paddock and contain any other animals that may be grazing with the horses such as sheep or goats.
Back in medieval times the pergola, which was then referred to as a trellis, were used between spaces to again shade from the elements. The pergola is constructed by interweaving beams of a particular building material. The designs are endless and I have seen pergolas which were composed of beams which all ran form left to right, beams which were cross hatched, and curved beams. Your pergola idea can completely or partially cover your outdoor area. Of course the closer together the beams the more shade that will be provided.
Wood is one of the oldest fencing materials and has stood the test of time due to its aesthetics, durability and great functionality. It still remains one the most popular types of fencing in the USA because of the amount of privacy it provides with its wide panels and great height. It is very attractive since it can be carved and cut into a variety of colors. The wood can be stained to leave the natural grain patterns showing or painted into any of a variety of colors. Wood fencing has a warm and welcoming feeling without being too expensive. Wood fencing is also very versatile, from picket fences around the home to animal corals and property fencing, wood can be used in almost any application. With good maintenance, wood fencing can easily last as long as the lifespan of your home.
Metal is another material choice that offers a completely different look and style. While metal pergolas are rather expensive, they do offer a whole new level of sturdiness and durability, even more so than plastic. Cast iron is a common metal choice, though it is very heavy and will rust when exposed to the elements. Aluminum is better alternative, because it's lightweight, yet still extremely strong. When shopping for aluminum pergolas, be sure to inquire about the hardness rating of the metal. Hardness ratings of aluminum should be T-4, T-5, or T-6, with T-6 being the hardest, or strongest, and thus the most preferable. The other major advantage of aluminum is that it will not rust.
