The Benefits of a New Fence

The Benefits of a New Fence

In most big cities and suburban neighborhoods, houses are built one after the other with very little room in between to separate them. That’s where a beautiful and functional fence can make all the difference. There are many reasons to consider putting up a new fence in your yard, and, depending on the type you pick, there are lots of different benefits that come along with it.

The first, and perhaps most common reason homeowners choose to build a fence, is for additional backyard privacy. For houses with a large or open backyard, it can be especially difficult to enjoy your outdoor space when all of your neighbors or passing cars have a clear view into it. A six-foot-tall wooden fence is perfect in these situations to give your yard a more secure, private feel. But you may want to talk with your neighbors first, because sometimes they are willing to split a portion of the cost with you.

Safety is another big reason you may decide to put up a fence, which can be a huge asset in protecting both your children and pets. A fenced in yard will allow your children to play without you having to worry about them running into the street. It also keeps your pets from wandering off, and deters other unwanted pests from finding their way into your yard. Depending on where you live, a fence can keep wild deer or raccoons from causing damage to your gardens, trashcans or pools. A well-built fence can also protect your home from criminal activity, serving as an additional layer of security against burglars and intruders.

The one thing that all homeowners can agree to love about a fence is the value it adds to your property. When you choose to install a new fence made of high quality materials, such as western red cedar or ornamental iron, it can net a profit of over 50{5fae7dcccc1057dbda1e018640e298c291ecbda3e3a3c6a23c160c38759dcd72} of its total cost should you ever decide to put your home on the market.
