Your home is a valuable investment, and that includes your yard too. A fence is an investment in the protection of your property, home, and family. If you’re considering a new fence, or a replacement fence, consider that a privacy fence offers many benefits. Read on for five of the great benefits that adding a privacy fence to your property can have.
One of the main things people are looking for in a privacy fence is, of course, privacy. It is great to be able to sit out on your porch or patio and not worry about the prying eyes of neighbors or people passing by on the street. Having a privacy fence can also give you peace of mind about your kids playing in the yard, since you don’t have to worry about unknown people seeing or watching them play or trying to talk to them. Finally, a privacy fence also works in the opposite direction, and it can protect your neighbor’s privacy and shield them from the light and sounds coming from your yard.
An unfenced backyard is an open invitation to criminals to steal or vandalize your property. Any fence is better than nothing, but a privacy fence protects you more than a short fence, or a chain link fence that people can see through. If people can’t see into your yard, because you have a privacy fence, they have no idea if there is even anything in there worth stealing. Tall privacy fences are also hard to climb, making it more difficult and time consuming to break into your property, and many times criminals will decide it is not worth the risk.
There is no one single type of privacy fence. From wood to vinyl to metal fencing, you have your choice of materials and styles to suite your needs and aesthetic.
A beautiful privacy fence adds to your home’s curb appeal and value. It is not just an investment that pays out benefits to you while you live there, it is also an investment with a valuable return if and when you sell your house.
Privacy fencing can also keep your animals safe, or conversely keep your property safe from animals. If you have pets, you know the important role a good fence plays in their protection. Your fence keeps them safely on your property and also keeps them from seeing things that might provoke a reaction (like the mailman to bark at). But not having pets doesn’t mean that a privacy fence is unnecessary. It could protect your garden from wandering deer and your kids’ sandbox from stray cats, among other things.
