In a world where most of our time is spent at home, security, aesthetics, and utility should all be considered when installing or updating your fence.
Aesthetics and Adornments
Do you prefer a wooden look, or do you want a chain-link? Would you like something that will keep its beauty for a long time, or do you enjoy maintaining your property? How about something to appreciate your property? There are many natural materials to choose from, like stone, hedges, or shrubs that make great fences for families. If you live in a community with a Homeowners Association (HOA), check what materials are allowed in the neighborhood. Improving the curb appeal of your home for resale or simply aesthetics can come with a new atmosphere. Updating the property as your children get older may lead to replacing your fence with something that takes less care to maintain. Or it simply looks the way you always wanted to without worrying if your kids would get hurt by it.
The height of your fence can dictate how much privacy you have. Five feet is recommended to deter pets from jumping the fence and privacy for your children. Consider if you want the fence spaced out or blocking any view from the outside. Child-safe fences avoid spaces or materials that make them seem easy to climb. Your family may have children inclined to climb trees or chain-link fences, so a wood or vinyl fence would be better. Choosing a wood that does not splinter easily will save you headaches in the future. Do you have pets that like to roam around outside? Ensuring they can’t jump the fence or climb it is a priority when choosing the right fence for you.
Additionally, the possibility of a gate can increase the quality of the fence for your family. Hercules Fence DC carries wonderful automated gates. They maintain privacy while ensuring no one walking on the street accidentally wanders up your driveway.
When choosing your fence materials, maintenance is an important factor. A cost-effective approach would be vinyl over wood because of its durability and low maintenance.
