When it comes to home and landscape improvement, adding a fence is one thing that not only adds curb appeal and retains its value, but gives you tons of benefits. With spring fully arrived you’re likely beginning to spend more and more time outdoors and adding a fence can help make your outside time even more enjoyable. Fences bring you a wide range of benefits, some of which we want to talk about today!
One of the most obvious benefits of adding a fence around your home is that it helps to improve your privacy. Depending on your neighborhood, you may find that prying eyes can easily find their way into your outdoor and even indoor activities. When you add a fence, it helps to keep all those nosy peepers out of your business.
Potential criminals are significantly less likely to try to break into a home with a fence. It’s an extra step that must be dealt with and adds time to their entrance and escape. Most minor crimes are acts of opportunity, and fences help minimize the risk. Additionally, adding pointed toppers on a metal fence or having an exceptionally high fence, can help reduce your chances of break-ins even further and may help reduce your home insurance costs.
Having the full perimeter of your property line out can be a benefit in many ways. It can help you see how much space you have to work with for additions like pools or swing sets. Additionally, it can help dispel hard feelings between neighbors – there can be no dispute over who needs to mow what or who is planting where.
If you own a pet or have young children, a fence also offers practical safety benefits. Children and dogs both have a troublesome habit of wandering off if they see or smell something exciting outside of your property line. Even if they’re only unsupervised for a moment, if they were to run into traffic or outside of your line of sight, they might get injured or worse. Having a fence keeps them safe, contained and out of sight of those passing by.
