Getting a new fence in your yard is a great way to improve curb appeal. It gives you a project to focus on when other tasks are somewhat slow. Plus, you can involve the whole family in the design of the fence, if not the actual construction. Just remember to be considerate of your neighbors once the real work begins. In the meantime, here are some reasons to build a new fence and get it installed before the summer winds down.
Boost Curb Appeal
As we mentioned before, boosting curb appeal is one of the biggest reasons why any homeowner would think about installing a new fence. You can enhance the look of your home’s exterior and accentuate the look of the garden that you’ve worked so hard to cultivate. Plus, now you can decorate your fence with some lovely climbing vines and even upgrade it with a trellis.
Increase Your Privacy
Are you afraid of intruders coming into your yard? That’s another reason to get a fence. What about your neighbors snooping around in your business? That’s why you should consider getting a privacy fence attached to your residential property.
Protect Your Pets
A new fence can also protect your pets. Whether you want to keep them from running off into the street or you want to prevent wild animals from getting into your yard, both are valid reasons for installing a fence around your home.
Secure Your Pool
Your pool is a huge attraction, especially in the summer. But putting in a new pool also comes with a modicum of responsibility. For one thing, you need to have a pool around your fence. Also, the gate needs to be locked and latched when the pool isn’t in use. Keeping a trampoline next to your pool fence is a terrible idea. Although it looks fun in the movies, it isn’t something you should copy in real life.
Increase Family Safety
New fences also increase safety for your family. You can play with your kids in your yard and keep strangers at bay while preventing problems with passing traffic, especially if someone needs to go chasing after a stray ball or kite.
Prevent Insect Invasion
Finally, consider how fences can slow down the invasion of insects. Cedar wood can discourage bugs from trying to get into your yard because the smell of it drives them away.
