Having a fence around your property can serve many purposes. Fences serve different purposes depending on the property, but one certain thing is that a fence can improve your property’s security. So, if you’ve been on the fence about building a fence around your property, here are four reasons why you should have it installed. 


The number one reason people install fences around their property is for extra security. They’re a good investment if your property is located in an area with a high crime rate or your property is located near a wildlife reserve. If you’re concerned about security, have a wooden fence with an electric mesh on top installed around the perimeter of your property. 

Establish Boundaries

Want to have a visual representation of where your property lines are? A fence is a great way to define the correct boundaries between your property and your neighbors’ property. This is especially great for those who are experiencing property line battles with their neighbors. Establishing a fence around your property will distinguish property lines once and for, as well as help you maintain a healthy relationship with your neighbors. 


Everyone enjoys the privacy of their own home. If your property is located on a busy street or your property is close to your neighbor’s building, you may want another layer of privacy. Adding a tall fence around your property is one way to get it. If your primary goal is to achieve more privacy, opt for thicker fence materials such as wood and vinyl as opposed to a chain-link fence. 


If you have small children or pets living on your property, installing a fence can help keep them safe. It will prevent them from leaving the property and wandering around the neighborhood, prevent strangers from having access to your children, and will give you peace of mind. Additionally, fences can be helpful for those with aggressive pets. Pets won’t be able to leave the property, therefore protecting you from liability lawsuits.
