The Three Foot Tall Iron Fence

This type of fencing is often decorative and used in smaller yards, gardens, and patios. If you are looking to mark off an area without blocking a view or being intrusive, this is an idea fence choice. It is also a wonderful decorative element to add on top of walls built from stone, brick, or stucco. Most people and larger dogs can get over this type of fence, however, taller people are very likely to trip over them entirely. Keep this in mind if you are looking for a fence to be a barrier to a drop off of any kind.

 

The Four Foot Tall Iron Fence

This is a very common fence as it is tall enough to keep most dogs and people out. This allows you protection without a boxed in or claustrophobic feeling, as you can walk right up to this fence, lean on it, and have a pleasant conversation with someone on the other side. This fence works well when installed at yard height and also when on top of shorter masonry knee wells.

 

The Five and Six Foot Tall Iron Fence

You can still see over this fence, but it will keep almost any dog or person out unless they go to a significant effort. This fence does begin to lend properties with a closed in feeling, however. A six foot fence is ideal for sending a ‘stay out’ message to potential trespassers.
