MIDAS LANDSCAPES Fencing Contractors Perth

Types of Fencing

In Australia, there are two main types of fence: Hardifence and Colorbond. The main difference lies with the material, but there are other distinctions as well.

Before you hire fencing contractors in Perth, consider first what type of material you want to use.


Hardifence is composed mainly of corrugated and interlocked cement fibre sheets, with aluminium capping for extra support. This material is fire-resistant, repels pests, and does not rot quickly.

Colorbond Fences

Colorbond fencing is made of steel with a colour directly bonded onto the material (hence the name ‘Colorbond’). Similar to Hardifence, it is also resistant to fire and pests, as well as corrosion.

Tips for Choosing the Right Fence Colour

Contrast with foliage

If you have plants next to your fence, pick a colour that is complementary to the foliage. If the fence is the same colour as the plants, it will not look aesthetically pleasing. However, if the fence is in contrast to the foliage, the latter will stand out better.


If you want to highlight the other features of your home, go with neutral, light colours. Dark ones are also okay, and they add a sense of sophistication to your property. For a more modern look, go with grey. Finally, if you prefer a rural aesthetic, choose shades of green.
