Welcome to My Prison

Rule #13: Unless you're aiming for a "detention facility" look, avoid enclosing your front yard with a chain-link fence.

Although this website claims that chain-link fences are "attractive, versatile, and creative," I have struggled to find a single example of a chain-link fence that is remotely attractive or creative. Perhaps you don't want the all American white picket fence, but come on, do you have to go to the other extreme? You may as well add some barbwire to the top for the full "Welcome to my prison" effect.
