Regardless of how large your property is, a fence can significantly improve the function and value of your outdoor space. A privacy fence can also give you peace of mind knowing you’re keeping your family and personal property safe.
If you’re considering installing a fence, here are five reasons why it’s worth adding one to your home.
5 Benefits of Adding a Fence to Your Property
- Shelters your property from the elements
- Adds aesthetic appeal to your home
- Protects your family from uninvited guests
- Prevents small children and pets from wandering off
- Creates a noise barrier
Fences Shelter Your Property From the Elements
Too much wind and sun can be damaging to your lawn or other plants on your property. A solid fence can protect your garden and backyard by blocking harsh winds. It will also stop debris from entering your yard on windy days keeping your garden and yard cleaner and preventing damage to your plants.
In areas of extreme heat, a privacy fence can add shade to your yard when positioned correctly so that your plants that don’t do well in direct sun can thrive. It also gives your family a place to relax outside without being directly in the sun’s harmful rays, depending on the position of your fence.
Fences Add Aesthetic Appeal to Your Home
What’s more charming than a white picket fence around an American home? All types of fences, white or otherwise, add instant charm and character to a property as long as they’re well-kept. Wooden fences can be painted or stained to match any style and improve the overall look of your home.
Additionally, a fence increases the value of your home, and on average, you’ll see a 65% return on investment.
Fencing Protects Your Family From Uninvited Guests
Whether animal or human, unwanted guests around or in your home are a severe problem, you should never take your family’s safety lightly. Installing a privacy-type fence around your home will deter pests and ill-intentioned humans from entering your property.
Fences Prevent Pets and Children From Wandering Off
Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for a dog or small child to wander into traffic or quickly get lost in the area surrounding your property. Even when you keep a close eye on your children and pets, it takes only a moment’s distraction for them to find their way outside the safe environment of your home.
Fencing Creates a Noise Barrier
If you live by a busy road or in a noisy neighborhood, you’ll be shocked to see how much quieter your backyard is, and even inside your home once you install a fence. A fence allows you to spend time outside and enjoy peaceful nature or a quiet conversation with friends without having to raise your voice over horns honking or neighbor’s dogs barking.
You’ll even notice that traffic noise is considerably less inside the house. You’ll sleep better and feel more refreshed when you install a privacy fence.
