A residential fence can be appealing within itself, but some homeowners like to add more pizzazz to their backyards during the holidays. COVID-19 restrictions are no longer as restricted, meaning that people are happy about being outside again and going to public events. Nonetheless, as Dorothy in the “Wizard of Oz” stated, “There’s no place like home.” If you currently don’t own a residential fence, it’s most likely too late to have one installed before your Independence Day bash. Still, you can benefit from these tips every 4th of July, and they can apply to any backyard celebration. Here are some residential fence ideas if you’re hosting an Independence Day BBQ.
Have a Privacy Fence Installed Next Year (If You Don’t Already)
You may love your neighbors and not mind having your yard out in the open. However, if you’re someone that likes to host large gatherings in your yard, out of respect for your neighbors, you may want to consider having Hercules Fence install a tall privacy fence to create an intimate setting. Cedar is the type of wood that warms up an atmosphere. PVC fences can replicate the appearance and warmth of wood, but they don’t require as much maintenance.
Consider Adding a Fountain to Your Backyard
Privacy fences block the view of your backyard, and they serve as somewhat of a sound barrier. However, suppose you want to add even more sound-blocking benefits to your Independence Day festivities. In that case, you may consider calling a landscaper to add water features to your backyard, such as a fountain. Water features are tranquil, and standing water makes it harder for mosquitos to propagate.
Add Lighting to Your Residential Fence and Your Entire Backyard
If you’ve already invested in landscape lighting, this tip doesn’t apply. However, if you don’t have much lighting in your backyard, that can create a problem. One, you want your guests to be able to see each other and walk around safely when the sun is no longer illuminating your yard: two, the appropriate lighting aids in highlighting your yard’s best features. String lighting adds a beautiful touch to a residential fence. Outdoor floor lamps also add a warm and inviting glow.
Ensure That There’s More Than Enough Space for Your Guests to Mingle
Outdoor living spaces like firepits, particularly during the colder seasons, encourage your guests to get cozy. However, while understated, the seating in your backyard is what matters the most. Your outdoor seating should be comfortable and plentiful so that guests can take a load off and enjoy themselves during your Independence Day BBQ.
