In landscape design of the site, plastic, like material, is often used. Pergolas, gazebos, children's play complexes and swimming pools are just large objects. And there is also furniture, lawns, flower beds, garden sculptures, grottoes, decorative fountains. And it is not surprising that plastic PVC fences compete with wooden, metal and brick fences.
PVC finishing for plastic under the tree
List of benefits of fencing from plastic is best seen in comparison with other materials:
relative to wood - resistance to mechanical damage and bending loads, resistance to high humidity and fungal damage, does not burn and easier to clean from dirt, does not require a protective and decorative coating;
with respect to metal - corrosion resistance, not afraid of damage, violating the protective coating
relative bricks and stones - easy to install, light weight, does not require the arrangement of a monolithic foundation.
By the appearance of the spans, a plastic fence can have various forms:
a hollow span of polymer board, protecting the site from road dust and prying eyes;
elegant picket fence;
vertical or horizontal fence of boards or strips;
Openwork decorative plastic fencing for gardens, flower beds and flowerbeds.
Decorative PVC fencing
Polymers for making plastic fences must be highly resistant to solar ultraviolet radiation and have good structural strength. Most often, manufacturers use PVC, but you can find offers on the market for the sale of complete polypropylene fencing.
According to factory completeness and installation readiness, plastic fences also have differences.
Full sets of fencing have prefabricated or solid spans, posts bearing horizontal rails or crossmembers, fasteners, decorative tips on the posts. And the installation of such a fence is under the scheme and instructions of the manufacturer.
Note! If you do not take into account the decorative openwork fences and shtaketnik for flower beds and flower beds, other types of plastic fences to reinforce the supporting elements (poles, railings) use an aluminum or galvanized steel profile.
Polymeric fence sections can be used as spans for combined fences:
with metal or concrete pillars;
with pillars, lined with brick or decorative concrete blocks;
with concrete or brick pillars and fastening on the base of the strip foundation.

On our site you can find contacts of construction companies that offer the service of designing and building fences and fences. Directly to communicate with representatives, you can visit the exhibition of houses "Low-rise Country".
There is such a type of material as PVC board. You can build a fence out of it in several ways:
in the form of a fence;
a classical fence, with fixing the board individually to the fence crossbars;
with horizontal mounting between the pillars;
fence-louvers, when the boards are angled into the grooves of the vertical guides.
The scope of use of plastic fences has its own specifics.
Compared to metal or wood fences, they are not as versatile. For example, they are not used as a fence for agricultural areas - gardens, animal pens and poultry. The reason is quite high cost and the lack of low-budget options. You can remember the grid, but such fences are temporary, if it is a pure polymer, and not a protective coating on galvanized steel wire.
But in comparison with brick and stone, plastic fences and fencing for a dacha or house can be used on a site much wider. This is the safest type of fence around the playground, and decorative PVC fences around a flower bed, pergolas or patio compete only with carved wooden fences.
Decorative fences for giving from plastic around a flower bed
The main purpose of the plastic fence is traditional - fencing of the site and the allocation of zones inside it.
The installation of a plastic fence depends on its type and factory completeness.
PVC board fences are assembled using the same algorithm as wooden counterparts.Except when they are part of factory-assembled typeset spans.
Sectional plastic fences are mounted to poles made of other materials using standard hardware included in the factory package.
Fully assembled fences from different manufacturers differ among themselves by the method of attachment to posts and the type of spans (finished or prefabricated sections). The pillars themselves are installed according to a standard procedure - at a precisely measured distance from each other, in drilled or dug recesses, with partial or complete concreting of the profile pipe.

Plastic fence is not only ready-made kits and sections made of PVC or polypropylene. There are other options.
The closest competitor to PVC sectional fences is polycarbonate. Usually they use a lighter and cheaper execution - cellular polycarbonate, but at your request the contractor can install a solid sheet.
The merits of such a material are not less than those of PVC, and in terms of indicators it exceeds it:
higher impact resistance (it is used for protective ammunition many sports);
higher resistance to chemical reagents;
higher resistance to ultraviolet radiation;
absorbs and reflects street noise better;
does not heat up in the sun.
And although polycarbonate is the only form option - a sheet, it has its own original decorative features. With it, you can create a deaf translucent solid spans and fences with a mirror (reflective) coating.
When installing such a fence, be aware that polycarbonate is a partially transparent material.
Installation of the simplest polycarbonate fence is fast. And it is no more difficult than installing a fence made of corrugated flooring:
Pill-ins and concretes are made of galvanized steel profiles.
Mount two or three rows of crossbars.
Paints the frame.
Polycarbonate is cut to size and fixed to the frame.
There are more complex models to order - combined fences with spans from the welded frame of the original form or in combination with forged decor.
Fences made of plastic pipes look original and unusual. This design has no functional advantages, but it can be regarded as a manifestation of individuality and the creation of an unusual fence.
There are two versions of the design:
Installation of lattice sections made from scraps of water pipes, with their fittings connected to each other. Then fastening sections to the pillars.
Mounting a frame of pillars and crossbars. Then the device horizontal or vertical fence.
The original solution is a plastic pipe fence
This option of fencing refers to the combined form and it is exclusively an example of "folk art". It can be made on the basis of a fence from a welded mesh, if a plastic curb tape is woven into its cells.
They produce such a tape with a width of 10 cm, and its dimensions "fall" under the standard grid cells. The pattern of weaving depends on the type of cell - the tape is passed in a “checkerboard” order in the horizontal direction, repeating the shape of squares or rectangles. The most common color is green, but there is also brown and black.

The most popular type of finished sectional fence of the site is a white fence made of picket fence or a fence with partially blind spans. This color harmoniously fits into the landscape of the plot in any season of the year, and it is least of all subject to fading in the sun. The second popular color is beige. It also goes well with greenery on the site and the surrounding area.
PVC board manufacturers often imitate the color and texture of natural wood. And the form and type of such a fence is fully consistent with the examples of premium class wooden fencing.
Features of decorative flower-flower fences are closest to the openwork of wrought iron grids, although there is also a miniature fence in traditional style.
Polycarbonate sectional fences can be made in any style - from the laconic modern minimalism with high-tech elements to the classic forged fence with a plant ornament.

The plastic fence for the dacha or house to install is simple. Sectional and fully equipped models are assembled according to the manufacturer’s instructions, where each step is formulated unambiguously and clearly. The main difficulty is the installation of pillars. And on how professionally performed this stage depends on the strength and reliability of the design.
