There are a lot of ways to upgrade your yard. Some of them are a little more extensive and luxurious, such as an inground pool or outdoor kitchen. While others, though simpler, can have just as much benefit and add just as much value to your property. One seemingly plain but very advantageous upgrade you can invest in is a fence.
Fencing is available in a wide variety of designs, materials, and sizes, all of which come with a set of perks for you, your family, and your property. Especially if you opt to have a custom fence built and installed, it can really take your landscape to the next level. How so?
It’s hard to truly enjoy your backyard when anyone and everyone can see you. If you’re concerned about neighbors or passersby seeing you relaxing on your patio or taking a soak in your backyard spa, a fence can provide the barrier and peace of mind you need. Fencing will visually block others from a view of you in your yard, as well as help mitigate noise coming through, so you can better enjoy your outdoor space.
Installing a fence around your property gives you better control over who enters and leaves. By making it more difficult to get into your yard, fencing helps deter criminals and pesky critters who can cause damage. It will also work the other way around to keep children and pets from running into the road or wandering off your property when they shouldn’t.
3) Visual Appeal
The right fence will have not just practical benefits for your home, but aesthetic ones as well. A fence will elevate the look of your entire property, adding character, interest, and an attractive landscape frame. You can choose a style and stain/color that matches or complements that of your house. Additionally, if you have your fence custom-built, you can have it adorned with intricate decorative patterns and designs.
4) Property Value
The aforementioned privacy, security, and aesthetic appeal that a fence adds to your property increases its overall value as well. If you end up selling down the road, your initial investment will pay off in ROI. Even if you don’t sell, you’ll have a more valuable asset and be able to enjoy the benefits of fencing yourself.
5) Landscape Protection
Fencing can help preserve the plants, gardens, and other landscaping on your property by acting as a barrier to the elements. Instead of getting the full brunt of wind or sun, a fence can take some of that impact to protect ground landscape. It will also help prevent and deter animals from eating or damaging your plants/gardens.
6) Mark Boundaries
Using a fence to signify where your property begins and ends can save you a lot of headache, particularly if you have a lot of acreage. A physical border will prevent neighbors and potential trespassers from encroaching on your land, and keep you from encroaching on your neighbor’s property as well. This way, you can avoid any unfriendly or legal disputes. Plus, with a fence marking your property lines, you’ll know where to stop your yard work, so you’re not spending time or money to maintain land that isn’t yours.
