The Story of the Three Little Pigs...Fence Edition!
Once upon a time there were three little pigs, who moved to the magical land of Kansas. They each found a cozy new home on beautiful property, but all of them needed a fence.
Now the pigs kept hearing stories from their new neighbors about the Big Bad Kansas Wind. Why, it seemed to cause all kinds of trouble for fences. Sometimes it could even blow them right over!
The three little pigs didn’t want this to happen to their fences. So they got on the Internet and did some research about what kind of fence could stand up to the Big Bad Kansas Wind.
The first little pig had a great big yard with a garden and a pet dog, and he needed a lot of fencing on a budget. So, he picked an affordable chain link fence. His contractor anchored the posts so the fence would be nice and sturdy when the strong wind came along. And sure enough, before too long, it did.
The Big Bad Kansas Wind huffed and it puffed...but it couldn’t blow that chain link fence down! The wind blew right through it and went on its way. So the first little pig happily went out to tend his garden.
Now the second little pig liked to entertain on his deck and lay out by his pool, so he wanted a fence that offered privacy. A wooden fence seemed like just the thing...but he was concerned because he’d heard stories about wooden fences that were damaged by the wind.
So the pig called up his friendly local fencing contractor, and they suggested a shadow box fence for his property. This type of wooden fence gave him more privacy than a regular picket fence, but still let some wind flow through. They built his wooden fence with heavy duty posts and crossbeams. It was ready when the Kansas wind came prowling by.
The Big Bad Kansas Wind huffed and it puffed...but it couldn’t blow that fence down! The strong, well-built wooden fence stood up to the wind. So the second little pig happily got his towel and headed out to the pool.
Now the third little pig also wanted privacy, plus he was an enterprising fellow who wanted to boost his property value. He decided to invest in a concrete block fence (or wall, if you like). The contractor build an attractive wall with a strong foundation that would last a long time. This little pig wasn’t too worried about the wind because he figured that sturdy, solid wall could stand up to just about anything.
Sure enough, the Big Bad Kansas Wind huffed and it puffed...but it couldn’t blow that concrete block fence down! It didn’t even budge. So the third little pig happily went out to enjoy his beautiful yard.
