Are vinyl fences tacky?
We just purchased and expensive $4,000 large two piece gate for the RV parking, and a 27 foot section of picket in vinyl, and my neighbor said she liked our " plastic" fence I thought it looked kind of classy most of the neighbors have worn wood or metal gates some rusty . Did I make a mistake with vinyl? It's not the cheap stuff from the big box stores...
Are vinyl fences strong enough for a charging pitbull?
My neighbors have a pitbull. Sometimes this dog is in a kennel in their yard, sometimes not it is loose in the yard. regardless, whenever I am out in my backyard, it barks at me. If it is loose, it will hcarge at the fence, slamming its weight against the fence, really shaking it.I bought this house last year. I had no idea what a menace this dog was, or of the mentality of the people next door. After the first six months of non stop barking, I finally, very nicely, said something, and they threatened me. After that I was intimidated, and disgusted, and kept inside. I do plan on selling the house in a year or so, when I can figure out how to do it and buy a new one seems complicated, especially with my belongings .Animal control won't do anything about the charging, they say, as " the animal is contained" . But I worry the fence will at some point give way. I can see it stretching between the posts when the dog slams its body against the fence.I have a little 22 pound non aggressive rescue dog, and a fourteen year old son small for his age , and I myself am a woman, not a big male that could intimidate the dog back if this should occur.I was thinking to call animal control and state that I am concerned that the dog will break through this fence maybe send a registered letter and that I am reporting my concerns, and ask that they come evaluate the safety of the fence. Any adice on this situation appreciated. I cannot enjoy my backyard not to mention they play music and smoke weed...nice environment Are vinyl fences s

Vinyl fence installation questions?
I am in the process of installing 250' vinyl fences in backyard which has sandy soil type. The fence is 6' x 6' privacy, post is 5" x 5" x 8'. Here are my questions 1 Do I need to fill post hole with gravel even for sandy soil?2 Do I need to fill post hole all the way to top and slope the concrete away from the post to prevent water from collecting around it?3 Using step method, some of the posts are only 12" in the ground, filling the post with concrete helps strength?4 Post holes are about 32" to 42" deep and requires about 4 bags of 80LB concrete to fill the holes no gravel , it is overkill?Thanks The reason I dig holes at least 32" is I believe the extra concrete beyond the depth of post will provide extra stability, gravity does the magic. I like to over engineer things and a better safe than sorry kind of guy. Plus concrete is cheap. I could be wrong.
