They can last against the erosion of the landscape because of climate changes and require little to no maintenance. They can also have ornamental decorations that act as additional security that prevents people from climbing into your yard.

Wrought iron: Wrought iron is another fence that’s good for security and is very durable, lasting as much as 50 years or longer if cared for properly.
