Traditional fences are classic and timeless, offering a range of styles. Here in Middle Tennessee, they are typically made from pressure-treated pine or cedar, which are both durable and appealing. Dog Ear fences feature a classic design, providing a simple and effective solution with minimal detail. Cap and Trim fences include a horizontal cap along the top for added detail and extra moisture protection. Arched fences have boards cut in a curved shape for a decorative finish. Scalloped fences are the opposite of arched and feature a wave-like pattern. Horizontal fences place pickets or boards horizontally for a modern and  contemporary look. Picket fences, with short, evenly spaced boards, provide a quaint, traditional look ideal for front yards and gardens. Split Rail Farm Fences are simple and classic with horizontal rails, embodying the quintessential Tennessee country feel. Semi-Privacy Fences offer some privacy while allowing light and air to pass through, where you want some separation but not complete privacy.

For those looking to upgrade aesthetics, make a statement, or meet specific needs, custom fences offer endless possibilities. Custom designs are often incorporated into more luxury homes in Nashville and can be tailored to your property’s unique style and your personal taste. X Fences feature diagonal cross patterns of various sizes. Hardwood Fences are made from durable woods like teak and ipe and are not only long-lasting but also visually striking and luxurious. Post and Wire fences combine wood posts with various wire options for a rustic look. Vertical or Horizontal Slat Fences offer a sleek, modern design with narrow slats, ideal for urban settings. Architectural Materials provide unique designs using a variety of materials, customizable to match any architectural style. Cable Rail fences incorporate metal cables for a contemporary look, particularly popular for decks, railings, and modern homes.

Wooden Gates 


Gates are not just functional; they can also be a beautiful feature that enhances your fence design and property. Entry Gates serve as the main access points to your property, and can be designed to be grand and welcoming, whether automated or manual, often secured with a welded metal frame. Side Gates provide convenient access to side yards, often smaller dimensions, but designed to blend seamlessly with your fence or have a custom look that complements the design. Double Gates offer wider openings for vehicles or equipment, making them perfect for driveways or large entry points. Estate Gates create grand entrances for larger properties, often integrating with mason walls or pillars, providing a high level of security. Garden Gates offer charming access points to garden areas, sometimes including a trellis above for an extra charming touch.

We could not be happier with the professionalism, quality of workmanship and the service we received from Heron Building Company.
