“Over the last five or six years, it has been a desire to be able to afford to put in an electric gate opener on our main camp entry gate.
The main reason for this is to provide a safer and more secure camping environment for our camping guest. My idea is to have the gate close late in the evening and then open early morning, to minimize any outside traffic that may be driving in, in the middle of the night up to no good. Last year I discovered a scouting leader was in the fence and gate business and reached out to him. Mr. Robert O’Neal suggested a plan and presented a cost that I was able to hopefully get budgeted for the 2021 physical year.
After reaching out to Robert and wanting to move forward with the project, Robert advised me that he was going to donate all the material necessary as well as the labor to install the new gate openers. On one of our past OA ordeals we utilized the labor of OA ordeal candidates to install all the underground piping necessary to make the gate work.  Over the past two weekends Robert and his crew have spent time at CJR and now we have an operational front gate opener.

I want to personally thank Mr. Robert O’Neal for his donation of over $6500 worth of materials and labor and on behalf of the Camp James Ray friends and family, Salute!!!

If you need fencing or gate work or a backyard remodel be sure and reach out to Robert and his associates at 78 Fence Company.”

“This was not the first time we have hired 78Fence, and we have always been so pleased with their work. Our most recent job was done quickly and efficiently. Robert and Teodoro and their crew were very professional and did a great job. I heartily recommend this company for any kind of fence installation, repair or maintenance job you might have.”


“Robert always goes the extra mile. Some contractors skimp on materials or labor to cut costs, but Robert makes sure things are done right. And 10-20 years later, when your patio still looks great, you’ll be happy u went w/ him.”

“This company designed a fence to separate my pool from my driveway. . I wanted a modern and clean design. They designed and installed an all stainless steel fence with steel cables The installation was perfect. The workmanship is awesome. They also cut out the stone and created a garden and then ran drip irrigation. I am very pleased with the result. These people are talented and trustworthy. I recommend them.”

Kyle Pugh

“I called 78Backyard Concepts during the busy time of the year, and Robert called me back, was punctual for all appointments, and was very specific and detailed about the scope of the project (a modest sized backyard fence). Then he built an indestructible fence that will last for decades…and it looks great too. It is nice to know that quality and attention to detail still exists. Check out that welded gate, balanced and swings with ease!”

Chris Rynear

“I have used Robert O’Neal with 78 Backyard Concepts twice. Perhaps 6 years ago or more, Robert put up an electric driveway wooden gate, along with some wooden fencing at the front of the house. Miguel did a great job. It has held up very well. This time, I used him for replacing my long alley fence and a side fence. Again, Miguel did the work. They were always on time. The fence is beautiful. At the end, Miguel cleaned up impeccably. I am very happy with their work!”

Don Read

“78Backyard Concepts installed a board on board fence for me several years ago. This year, they installed a matching electric gate. In both instances their work was high quality and completed very timely. Robert personally came out to consult with me on both projects. In addition, when the battery for the electric gate was misbehaving, he came out personally to troubleshoot and solved the problem. I would definitely recommend 78 Backyard Concepts!”

Cynda Walker

“I needed to have my carport replaced and new decking installed. I have very specific tastes and design ideas. Robert has the background and technical skills to design and put my ideas to paper and then transform my backyard space. I am thrilled! FYI – this is the second time I have used 78Backyard Concepts.”

Teresa Bond

“After an exhaustive search we decided on 78Backyard concepts to complete our rather large and complicated fencing project. Robert and his team did an excellent job of completing the project in a timely manner, while being sensitive to our needs. Despite the challenging North Texas weather with rain and heat our chain link fence and horizontal cedar fence were installed with great professionalism and care. If I had another 800′ of fencing to put up I would call on Robert and 78Backyard Concepts.”


“Over a several year period 78 Backyard Concepts worked on several projects in support of completing our pool area and outdoor dining/leisure area. 1. Installed perimeter fence around the pool and replacing two (2) gates to meet code All installed in one (1) day beautifully stained and all building/installation materials removed leaving us a ready to use pool area. 2. Designed and installed a boarder fence and pergola; beautiful job on a massive pergola making the outside area attractive and usable which it was not before. This effort took several days but each night the job site was cleaned up and upon completion ready to use. Robert is a creative, professional partner; listened to our problem and ideas and took the result to the next level. Everyone comments on the pergola and fence design; it’s made the dining area a show stopper”
