Neighbors can be great, but they can also be an issue. Whether you get along with your neighbors or not, sometimes you just want some privacy. You can find privacy inside the walls of your own home, but what if you want to sit outside? The best way to make your backyard a private location is to install a privacy fence. At North American Deck and Patio, we’ve helped a lot of homeowners in Maryland with our fence installation services and wanted to talk today about a few different ideas to ponder if you’re considering having a privacy fence installed.
Add a Privacy Fence Around Your Deck
Some homeowners want a little bit of privacy in their backyard, but they don’t want to add a fence around the entirety of their yard. A good compromise can be to add a fence around your deck or patio. Fences that are built around decks and patios can be integrated into their designs, meaning you can hang flowers and lights on the fence and use it in any way to enhance your deck experience. We’ve built a lot of deck fences over the years and can help you design how you want the fence to look.
Grow Some Bamboo or a Hedge
Ok, not technically a privacy “fence”, but both bamboo and hades can provide your backyard with a lot of privacy. They will grow tall and thick enough to block off sightlines between you and your neighbors. However, be warned that without proper management, bamboo can grow erratically and spread. If you’re looking for some privacy but want a more natural barrier, bamboo or hedges may be what you’re looking for.
Use Your Fence to Grow Your Garden
Privacy fences can provide more than just privacy to your backyard — they can also add functionality. Many Maryland homeowners utilize their yards to grow fruits and vegetables, and if you’ve ever had your own garden, you know your own produce always tastes better. One ingenious way to gain some newfound functionality and some newfound garden space, is to hang planters off your fence. Particularly, we’ve found that vine-growing plants grow the best in these planters.
Work with a Professional Fence Installation Company in Maryland
When you’re looking to add a fence to your property, you want it to last a long time. The best way to do this is to work with a professional fence installation company that has a proven track record. Some homeowners are enticed by the low price some amateur contractors advertise, but in the long run, their amateur work will probably end up costing more money. This privacy fence is an investment, one that will improve your home’s value when the day comes that you’re looking to sell it. Make a smart investment and work with a professional.
