If you are moving or building a new home, one of the decisions to make is whether or not to build a fence around the property. There may be a number of reasons why somebody wouldn’t want a fence, but when you really weight the pros and cons, you begin to see why building a fence should be a no-brainer. Here’s 4 reasons why you should have a fence:
There can be a lot of danger outside of your property that you don’t have control over (busy roads, ponds, cliffs, etc.). A fence around the perimeter of your yard helps ensure that the things that matter most to you can remain safe in your yard. This is especially important if you have young children, dogs, cats, or other animals. You can feel much more comfortable allowing your kids to play in the yard when you know they’ll be safe from outside danger.
In addition to keeping something safely inside your property, a fence is also necessary to keep unwanted things out. This could include criminals, teenagers in the neighborhood trespassing through your yard, or animals who come and feast on the vegetable garden or fruit trees.
You will enjoy a new degree of privacy after constructing a new fence around your yard. When you don’t feel like you are being watched, your yard essentially becomes an extension of your home where you can be you. Sometimes there are things in your yard that you don’t want your neighbors seeing, and other times there are things in your neighbor’s yard that you are tired of looking at. Fences solve that problem. Fences will also create a clear boundary-line between you and your neighbors, preventing any boundary disputes.
Although fences are usually built for the functionality, they can add a lot of curb-appeal to your home if done right. They add a sense of formality and quality to a home. There are many styles and types of fences, including wood, vinyl, chain-link and aluminum. Take time to consider the costs and advantages of the different types and then choose the fence that is best for you.
