Amy Birmes

The voice on the other end of the phone line is Amy Birmes. Amy can answer most of your general fencing questions. She will get your project started by scheduling you for a free estimate. After your estimate is approved, she will handle the contract and payment agreement. Amy is also the point of contact for all of Magnolia Fence & Patio’s marketing and communications.

Chris Hudson

Chris keeps operations at Magnolia Fence and Patio running smoothly by handling the behind-the-scenes work such as permits and utility locates. Did you know that nearly all fence projects require a permit? It is also against State Law to dig without prior coordination with utility companies. Take the guesswork out of the equation and let Magnolia Fence and Patio handle this for you.
