Spring is The Perfect Time to Install a New Fence

new fenceSpring is a time for new beginnings, a time for planting and growing. It’s also the perfect time to install a new fence. The ground is thawed and easy to work with, the weather isn’t too hot or cold, your home will get a boost to curb appeal timed with the spring blooming, and your fence will be ready for summer. For all of the above reasons, as we’ll explain below, spring is the best time to install a new fence for your home.

Ground is Thawed

The ground thaws before, or not long after spring begins. Having soft earth is important when installing a fence, not only because frozen earth is difficult to dig into. You want the earth to be soft and yielding when you put in a post because otherwise the ground around the post won’t form against it as it should. It needs to be loose and malleable so that when you tamp it will fill in loose spaces, pack tightly, and hold your post firm.

Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold

This benefit to spring installation is simple enough. No one likes working in freezing cold and bitter winds, and no one really like working in humidity and heat where you can fry an egg on the sidewalk. Spring offers perfect work weather, which is important for a physically exerting a task as installing a new fence.

Improve Your Homes Curb Appeal

A nice white picket fence can really boost your curb appeal, and there’s no better time to have it then in the spring. With your garden flowers blooming, you have a nice contrast of bright colors, again the white of the fence. You can also use it as a structure to grow vines.

Have It Ready for Summer

Finally, it’s nice to have your new fence installed in the spring so you can have it ready for summer. A fence is great to have in the summer because it can help keep your kids and dog safe while they play outside. It won’t only stop them from leaving, but it can also prevent or slow intruders from entering your property. And let’s face it, you really, really, don’t want to install that fence in summer. I mean, do you remember how hot it got last summer?
