Lifescaping Fence Systems

At Lifescaping Outdoors, we specialize in the design and installation of a wide variety of fence types and materials. We believe that time spent in the backyard should be for leisure and family life, not labor, so all of our fencing materials are maintenance-free, or close to it, and with our expert installation, your fence will look as good on the day your child graduates high school as it did the day he started kindergarten.

Redwood

Start with the best quality wood you can buy. Allow your crew leaders to determine if each individual post, two by four, and plank meet company standards, and install using trained professionals. It is a simple combination that has proven successful for years.

Board on Board:
No other construction style provides the privacy of a Board-on-Board fence. The pattern overlaps approximately one inch on each side. In most styles of wood fencing, wood shrinkage causes gaps to form between the boards that compromise the fence’s visual barrier. That shrinkage has no effect on a Board-on-Board fence, because the overlap compensates for it. Another advantage of the Board-on-Board style is that it appears the same from both sides of the fence. It is a good option for neighbors wishing to establish a boundary or a privacy barrier because it has no front or back.

What separates us from the rest are our construction methods. We build our Board on Board fence using a picture framing technique (1”x1” strips that run along the top and bottom of the frame on both sides of the boards), We only use 2”x8” or 2”x12” brown pressure treated kickboards (instead of our competitor’s 1”x8” deck boards) and, we frame with solid 2×4’s compared to a board with a dado, or hollowed out rail used by many contractors.

We use the correct post for the job. Whether it be a 4”x6” or 6”x6” pressure treated post or LifePost®. LifePost® is a trademarked product that many of our customers are choosing. The slogan from the manufacturer states: “Our posts will last longer than you.” Recently tested in the U.C. Davis wind tunnel to withstand winds of greater than 95 mph, it proves to be the best solution on the market, and capable of living up to its slogan.

Board on Board with Lattice:
Adding lattice to a Board on Board fence makes a dramatic statement. Borg Fences uses a very thick, heavy-duty lattice, framed in with 1”x1” redwood, giving the fence a beautiful finished appearance. It is not only beautiful, but also durable. The lattice measures a full inch in thickness. Lattice is available in the standard diagonal pattern and also a horizontal/vertical pattern. There is also a triple privacy lattice, which as its name implies, provides for the maximum amount of privacy. It is added to a 6-foot fence, which gives you a seven-foot finish for added privacy and sound dampening.

Solid Board Fences:
An alternating panel fence is known as a ‘good neighbor’ fence (usually when the neighbors pitch in equally to pay for it). The boards are side by side, and we can alternate the sections with the frame side showing and a smooth boarded side showing. We use 1”x8”, 1”x6”, or 1”x4” redwood boards, with or without kickboards, depending on what is needed.

Dog-Ear Fences:
Dog-Ear style of fencing is perhaps the most common style of fence found in the greater Sacramento area. We use 1”x8”, 1”x6” or 1”x4” redwood boards, with or without kickboards, depending on whether dirt or rock needs to be retained. The boards are set side-by-side and are clipped on each corner, thus giving a Dog-Ear appearance. The Dog-Ear fence also lends itself very well as a “good neighbor” fence.

Louvered Fence:
For those who want a privacy fence with a modern touch, the louvered fence is an excellent alternative to the traditional boarded look, offering a contemporary edge and a sophisticated design. Louvered fences are slanted so that they offer substantial privacy and environmental buffering while still allowing air to pass through.

Picket Fence:
The idea of a house with a picket fence is an iconic American style. It is sturdy and attractive, with evenly spaced vertical boards that allow daylight to peak through. The pickets keep animals in and out of yards while creating a sense of open space.

Shadowbox Fence:
A shadowbox fence is one that is completely finished on both sides. Similar in style to a Board-on-Board fence because the unique style in which it is constructed. The rails are staggered to cover the spaces between the boards on each side. There are small spaces though through which the wind can blow.

Custom Fence:
Are you looking for something just a little bit different? Just want a curved gate instead of a flat one? No Problem! Need something special? No Worries! Ask our Representatives how Borg Fences can make your idea a reality.

We offer posts with wind ratings that far exceed any other posts on the market. You can have all this for as little as 10% more than a leaning, twisting, rotting fence.

Vinyl

Lifescaping Fences is the leading installer of ActiveYards® vinyl fence, gates, gazebos and custom designs in California. As a company dedicated to our customers, we encourage the use of vinyl because:

  • It’s economical – At the end of the day, money talks. Because the vinyl is designed to last a lifetime, it is two to four times more cost effective over the life of your fence.
  • Add value – Vinyl is the perfect component to any lawn, pool or flowerbed and will act as a symbol of quality material choices to your guests or potential homebuyer.
  • Easy Maintenance – Let’s face it, who wants to spend their Saturdays re-staining wood? Vinyl’s smooth surface prevents dirt from sticking to it. Whenever the vinyl begins to look dirty, just spray it with a hose and watch the dirt vanish.
  • Design Appeal – Vinyl can be customized in almost any way imaginable. Why settle for the same dog-ear fence, or the same painted white ranch rail? Why not build something modern, permanent and beautiful?

aluminum

Our Strength is at the Core.

ActiveYards® aluminum fencing with Corigin technology features a solid metal core that runs through the center of each rail to help stand strong through seasons. This makes ActiveYards® the strong, beautiful choice for your yard.

The biggest difference?

No screws. With time and weather, screws on traditionally built fences will loosen, rust or break. Our core is designed with interior locking pivots that grip each picket of the fence just as tightly as screws, but without the wear and tear.

Beauty from all Angles.

Not only does this make for a more gracefully laying boundary; it also eliminates the eyesore screws.

Ornamental Iron

Your backyard swimming pool. The site of outdoor parties, swimming lessons, games of Marco Polo, and lazy summer days spent drifting on a raft while enjoying the warm sunshine. Your pool is the star of your yard, so why not give it the cast of supporting characters it so richly deserves? And those include not just carefully selected surrounding landscaping, a few comfortable chaise lounges, and a great selection of pool toys and games, but also pavers good looking enough to make it clear that your swimming pool is a true diva.

There are several benefits to choosing pavers as your swimming pool deck material.

Safety:
No matter how many times you warn them, kids often run, roughhouse, or simply don’t pay attention when it’s swim time. And when careless wet feet meet a slippery deck, watch out: falls are likely, and could be disastrous. When you choose pavers for your pool deck, however, you greatly reduce this danger, as unsealed pavers provide excellent traction and are quite slip-resistant (although it’s still a bad idea to run around the pool!).

Comfort:
Bare feet and rough or sharp flooring are a terrible combination. Heavily textured or rock-permeated concrete or tile can be uncomfortable – even painful – to walk on without shoes, and aging brick wears and tears on delicate toes. Smooth or stamped concrete is one possible solution – but can become unbearably hot on those scorching summer days, leading to burned feet. By contrast, pool pavers are smooth and comfortable to walk on and while they might warm up on a summer day, they are far cooler than standard concrete, making them much easier on bare feet.

Durability:
Concrete-slab decking is relatively inexpensive, but one thing is guaranteed: it will crack. That can be unsightly, and you can’t fix a large concrete slab without lifting the whole piece. Wood decking is lovely, but wood rots, splinters and needs frequent resealing. You won’t have any such headaches when you surround your pool with pavers, however: they don’t crack easily; if one is damaged, you can replace just the broken paver; and there are no issues with rotting or splintering. When Lifescaping Outdoors installs your pool pavers, you can count on durable good looks that will stand the test of time.

Appearance:
A gorgeous swimming pool doesn’t end at the water’s edge. It’s surrounded with equally spectacular decking. And if you are looking for the most versatile, elegant and easily customized flooring material for your pool surround, look no further than pavers. They come in a wide range of colors, sizes and shapes so you can match your home’s style -- plus, there are nearly endless ways to lay the pavers, meaning that you can create any design you fancy. Symmetrical rows, checkerboard patterns, half-circles, waves, patchwork, rustic… with the right pavers, and the expertise of Lifescaping Outdoors’ designers and installers, you can have it.

Give us a call today. We’ll help you turn your swimming pool into a star.
