Children’s Fencing

What makes the best children’s fences? Height, picket spacing, smooth materials, no sharp edges and self closing self latching gates.

Consider the ages of the children who will be in the backyard. Infants and toddlers or middle schoolers.

The minimum height for children is 4′ to keep them in the backyard. A smooth top rail and no sharp edges in case they decide to climb the fence.

However, a taller fence like 5′ to 6′ will keep strangers from reaching over the fence. Add sharp picket point tops and that discourages unwanted visitors from going over the fence.

Children’s Gates

Children’s gates need to be strong, safe and secure. The hardware should be well out of reach of toddlers. We recommend D& D Technologies Magna-Latch to keep out of the reach of toddlers, easy for adults. When thinking of the gates you do not have to limit yourself to the same as the fence. A decorative gate will be a nice accent to your fence and designate the point of entry for your guests.
