If you are tired of seeing the same old fence around your outdoor space, then consider a mix-and-match fence! As the top New Hampshire fence company, Ultimate Fence is equipped and ready to help you combine all types of fences, from aluminum fences to chain link to vinyl fences on your property! Keep reading to get our expert advice on how to mix and match fences successfully! 

Mixing and Matching Fences Like a Pro

Combining different types of fence material offers a wide range of benefits when compared to a single-material fence. Not only will you achieve a unique look for your property, but you’ll also get the dynamic advantages of combining materials.


We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions and answers from our fence experts about mixing and matching fence types to get the most out of your next New Hampshire residential fence! 

Can Your Company Mix and Match Fence Types? 

With New Hampshire fence company Ultimate Fence, you can mix and match fence types to your heart’s content. We know that designing your new fence is one of the most exciting parts of the fence planning process, and we don’t want you to settle for anything less than the perfect fence. 


We offer three different fence types, each with its own purposes and benefits. If you’re interested in an aesthetically pleasing fence that is secure, yet decorative then an aluminum fence may be one of the best choices for you! However, if you want to add additional privacy around the area you spend the most time in, like your backyard, then a low-maintenance vinyl fence is a great option. For an increase in security at an affordable price, a chain link fence will do the trick! Our team of fence experts can help you combine these three fence types to create the perfect border around your home. 


If you’re not quite sure what type of fence you might enjoy the most, we have a large collection of our completed fence projects posted in our photo gallery for you to browse. 

How Can I Combine Fence Materials and Heights?

Being able to transition between fence materials and heights seamlessly is a very important part of successfully mixing and matching a New Hampshire residential fence. We often have clients who want a shorter fence around the front of their property and a taller fence around the back of their yard. 


If not done properly, height or material transitions can be visually jarring. However, there are ways to make the transitions more seamless. Transitions can be blocked from your line of sight by adding trees, shrubs, or bushes that cover the area. Over time the trees or shrubs continue to grow, and the transition will be further blocked from sight.


We tend to advise customers to place transition points in corners, which ensures that long stretches of your fence are made of the same material. Changing fence materials and heights in the corners of your fence is less distracting than changing in the middle of a long section of fence and can be more easily covered by an outdoor feature or landscaping. 

Can I Add a Gate to My Mix and Match Fence?

Our team of fence professionals is fully equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to help you add an attractive gate to your mix-and-match New Hampshire residential fence! Often, gates are made of different materials from your fence, which can help tie different fence materials around your property together.


We do caution our customers against changing fence types close to a gate. Gates are a focal point in your yard and will draw the attention of passersby. Changing fence types close to the gate can be distracting and take away from the beauty of your fence and gate. 

Can Ultimate Fence Help Me Create a Mix and Match Fence?

While we love mix-and-match fences, we know that the number of choices can be overwhelming. That’s why we recommend that you stick with mixing and matching only two types of fences on your residential or commercial property. 


We also recommend that you place the different fence types in locations that are best suited for their purpose. For example, you may love a mixed fence with a classic, low-maintenance vinyl fence surrounding the front and sides of your property for privacy and a few sections of chain link fencing to section off an area for a shed or garbage can.
