Hi... so, we are trying to decide between a 6 foot high cedar privacy fence and a 5 foot high cedar (or redwood) farm fence (3 rails) with vinyl-coated mesh wire. The total length of the fence would be around 500 feet.

We will be hiring the job out, not doing it ourselves, and are on a budget, so we need to go with the less expensive option. Any opinions or tips?

Call the people who do this and get a few estimates.
Will probably end up doing that, but in addition to the cost question, I was hoping to also possibly pick up a few pros/cons from people here who have had experience with both fence types, since I have had neither.

We have a few acres of wooded land and don't really need the "Privacy" - we just need a nice looking fence that will keep our big dogs contained in the seeded area of our backyard. They can jump/climb over chain-link and basically anything 4 feet and under which is why we are considering a 6' privacy fence... but the farm fence seems nicer because it will not obstruct the views as much.

If one was a lot less expensive than the other, it would make the decision much easier.
