Along with the development of the world of architecture from year to year, placing a house fence is not just a barrier and protector for the occupants of the house to provide a sense of security and freedom of activity for the residents. However, more than that, the fence also adds artistic value and becomes a part of home decoration. The use of the right materials, textures, and colors will produce a fence that matches the character of the house as a whole.
A. Barrier & Protector Field
Basically the fence has two physical and psychological functions. Based on its physical function, the fence acts as a barrier to ownership of land or goods. The existence of a fence in a house will limit the area that belongs to someone. In addition to the area, items or objects covered by the fence also become property, for example tables, garden chairs, fruit plants, ornamental plants, and others. Land that has not been built a house must also have a fence. This aims to confirm that the land already has ownership rights so as to prevent the emergence of illegal settlements or illegal buildings. With certain forms of fences can also function to reduce noise pollution or protect the occupants of the house against disturbing sounds from outside the house. a sense of security and tranquility for its residents. At night the occupants of the house can sleep peacefully because the fence is locked.
B.Fence Social Status Symbol
The design and shape of the fence often depicts a symbol of the social status of its occupants. High, low and whether or not the fence is sturdy indicates how much security the occupants of the house feel against the outside environment. Fences that are too high can give the impression that the occupants are closed and less sociable. In addition, the fence can make the occupants like in prison. In general, high fences are used for houses located in less secure environments, such as near stations, terminals, markets, and fields. We recommend that a low fence shows the openness of the occupants. Currently, there are many low fences, especially in housing.
When viewed from the shape and materials used, a fence can also function as a protector. This means that the fence can protect the house and its occupants from things that are not desirable to a certain extent. For example, in terms of security, a fence can prevent the arrival of uninvited guests, in other words a thief or thief. Because the fence functions as a protector, it’s good for a fence to meet two main requirements, namely solid and safe, both in terms of materials and construction structures.
Fences with various shapes and colors are also a symbol of social status. The wooden fence with brown color indicates that the residents like the beautiful and cool environment. In addition, there are many forms and colors of fences that indicate social status. The more attractive the shape and color of a house. Increasing appreciation of taste and artistic taste puts the fence as an important element for the needs of a house.

In addition to the type of material, striking and contrasting colors or in line with the building of the house is often an option in adding to the beauty of the fence.
