There are various reasons why you should fence in your yard. Investing in your property requires upkeep and maintenance. Adding a fence boosts the property value to a home. It will improve the appearance of the home, and is an added selling point if you plan to list your home soon. People with children or pets are normally seeking homes with fenced-in yards.
Privacy is one of the most important things when considering a fence for the yard. Different fences provide different levels of privacy, as some fences are tall while others are low, and some fences have no spaces between the boards, while others do. Wooden and vinyl fencing provide maximum privacy compared to chain-link fencing. Consider what your yard looks like and if you are comfortable with your neighbors seeing your backyard. If you have a dog, using a vinyl or wood fence is a great way to keep them from barking at people. It protects them from people that can abuse animals, or people who climb chain link fences.
There are several types of fences that have ornamental features on them, and which can add a decorative element to your house. Such fences offer instant curb appeal and can really shore up the value of your house when it comes to reselling it. Consider a design that matches the neighborhood. Some homeowners associations require you to have the right fencing option to match the neighborhood. If this is the case, you will be limited in what you can select for fencing options.
One of the main reasons you should fence in your yard is to provide security to your home and your family. The security reason becomes even more important if you live in a neighborhood that has relatively high incidences of crime. A fence also comes in handy if the home is close to a wildlife reserve as it will help deter wild animals from invading your property and possibly attacking you, your family members or your pets. If you have children or pets, a fence helps to keep them in your yard where you can prevent abductions.
Fencing in your yard provides safety to children and pets since it helps keep them confined to the compound of your home. This is particularly important if the children or pets regularly play in the yard and there is a road close by. It is very easy for children or pets to wander onto the road as they play and this could lead them to being hit by a car or some other unfortunate incident. For pets that tend to be aggressive toward strangers, a fence is a great way to give them an area to play without the concern that they will attack someone. It is wise to put up signs warning people about your dog if they do have aggressive tendencies. If you have a pool in the yard, a fence is mandatory to keep people safe from drowning. Consider a fence with a lock and a warning sign to help prevent children and others from entering the pool without your supervision.
Fencing in your yard helps to mark the boundary of your property so that people around you, such as your neighbors, do not encroach on it. This also helps you know how much space you have available to carry out projects such as home additions, landscaping, or constructing a pool. The fence also helps you to know where your yard maintenance activities end, such as mowing the lawn or raking fallen leaves.
