It’s the perfect time of year to upgrade your home and landscape! Adding a privacy fence is an excellent way to improve your home in a variety of ways. These fences can help make your home more secure and add value, but they offer far more than these straightforward benefits. Today we’ll walk you through some of our favorite reasons to install a security fence this winter!
Security and Value
As a high starting point, privacy fences can help improve your home’s overall safety and may actually help lower your total home insurance costs. Not only will potential criminals be less inclined to want to enter your yard, but they will not be able to case your property as easily — making your home less of a target. Adding a privacy fence also increases your home’s value in both monetary and perceived senses. Many buyers are more interested in a house with a good fence because they are seen as more secure and with less work to be done.
If you want to be able to have events in your yard without your neighbors harassing you or you pestering them a privacy fence is essential for adding a layer of seclusion. Additionally, having a definite boundary can help keep outside noise and disturbances to a minimum which will make your space more relaxing. This seclusion is more than worth its value if you have children or pets who will want to play in the yard safely.
Along with helping to keep your own pets safe and contained, a privacy fence keeps unwanted animals out. Whether your neighborhood is prone to larger animals like bear and coyote or more routine creatures like deer, a privacy fence keeps them outside of your boundaries where they belong. Not only can these animals be dangerous, but they can also endanger themselves by getting into garbage and materials they should not.
Visible Property Lines
One of the best ways to ensure that you have healthy relationships with anyone around you is to have strong and specific boundaries. In the case of a yard, a privacy fence ensures that your neighbors don’t overstep their welcome and that you don’t overstep yous. It also provides that both sides are not fighting over space. Just make sure that you have a conversation with neighbors and take the time to ensure property lines are correct before your fence is installed to prevent issues once you’re finished.
