When my husband and I were looking at new fences for our backyard, one of the things I looked at was aluminum fence installation. However, my husband figured he could do it himself for less money. We ended up getting a wooden fence from his parents, who has just replaced their fence because it was too small for them. Then, with some help from the neighbor, they replaced the entire fence in about two days. I still think an aluminum fence would have been nicer but the wooden one isn't awful.
