6 Reasons to Fence in your Yard
December 14, 2016
Whether or not to fence in your yard is a tough decision to make. If you’re on the fence (pun intended) about whether to fence in your backyard, here are some reason why it actually makes a lot of sense.
Pets – If you own a pet, a fence is a sure-fire way to ensure their safety by keeping them in the yard and out of the street, or your neighbor’s flower beds.
Kids – A fence can keep young children safe and secure in your backyard. If you want to make sure your kids don’t venture too far out of safe territory, then a backyard fence can do just that. Along the same lines, a fence can help to keep your kids or neighborhood kids out of dangerous areas of your yard such as an in-ground pool, fire pit, or pond.
Looks – A well-built fence can add wonderful curb-appeal and overall value to a home. Whether you build the fence yourself, or hire a local Maryland fence contractor, be sure that the fence fits with your home, the surrounding community or neighborhood. Additionally, be sure that your fence adheres to local Maryland fencing laws and HOA requirements before building.
Gardens and Landscapes – A fenced in yard will have added protection from local wildlife who would like to make a meal out of your landscapes and gardens. The investment of a well-built landscape can be decimated overnight by a few pesky deer or other garden critters. In addition, a fence will provide a wind-break for your gardens, trees, shrubs, and ornamentals during windy weather.
Privacy – A fence will provide privacy so you can sunbath or host a backyard BBQ without the prying eyes of your neighbors. Additionally, fences can help to cut down on any noise pollution from neighboring areas or streets.
Boundaries – A fence is a practical way to set a border or boundary around your property lines. This way there is never any uncertainty about where your yard stops and your neighbor’s begins.
