A beautiful fence or retaining wall can do a lot for your property. It can serve as a barrier to define property lines and keep pets and children within safe boundaries. It can also protect your property from hazards like foot traffic and noise pollution. Fences are also a great way to add an aesthetically pleasing touch to your home and property, all the while giving you the privacy and protection you have always wanted. Here are five factors that make having a fence an integral part of your property.
Variety. There are a number of materials you can choose from to install a fence on your property. Wood tends to be the most popular choice in terms of appearance and sound protection, but you can also go with vinyl fencing, which is made to look like picket fencing without the paint requirements, or chain link for more a more practical approach. Steel and other metals can also be used for both practicality and aestheticism, so be sure to do some research before selecting a style for your property.
Low Maintenance. Modern fences, regardless of the material, generally require very low maintenance. This means you can spend more time worrying about more urgent home maintenance and repairs, and less time stressing over if the dog is still in the yard, or if one of the neighborhood kids accidentally sent a kickball rolling through your garden, or flowerbed.
Privacy. Fences also offer the perfect opportunity to get some more privacy in your home. Many homeowners tend to install fences along a masonry retaining wall, which minimizes erosion, prevents plants from growing wildly and out of control, and tends to save money on building costs and materials. What’s more is that fences can be adapted to your specific property lines, regardless of whether your home is built on flat land, or along the side of a hill.
Price. While installing a fence and obtaining all of the materials, or hiring a company to do it, might seem like an expensive endeavor, the truth is that installing a fence on your property is more cost-effective than you might think. Even fences that require some kind of concrete base are likely within your price range to install. Professional builders can also provide elements to your wall or fence that add both beauty and functionality, either separating your living spaces, diverting water from the property, and so on and so forth.
Patterns. “You can add texture to your property design by including curves and other patterns in the design of your fence or wall. These kinds of fence designs are commonly used in places like parks, golf courses, hotels, and other luxury resorts. These fences add a touch of refinement to your property, and can turn your property into a luxurious, outdoor living area,” said Barry O’Brien of Creative Construction & Remodeling.
