Kelly’s Favorite Fence Solution
Kelly’s favorite fence project at Frederick Fence is a “western ranch” style gate she sold for a homeowner in the Harpers Ferry, WV area. Kelly’s customer brought her several pictures of the gate the man wanted for his property. Working with her father, Kelly found a supplier for custom ranch gates in Don Schmalz, which has evolved into both a professional partnership and a personal friendship.
Kelly’s Favorite Fence
Of all the fence solutions Frederick Fence offers, her personal favorite is a light bronze aluminum fence with arch top gates. According to Kelly, she likes how unobtrusive this fence is and how it offers good visibility outside of the fence while not obstructing a homeowner’s view. She appreciates how this fence doesn’t “make you feel trapped inside a solid fence,” and that the arch top gates add “just enough to the fence without looking pretentious.”
