Privacy Cedar Fence

There are plenty of good reasons to add or replace fencing on your property. For one, it can increase the value of your home and enhance the curb appeal. For another, it’s a great way to get some additional privacy if you’re seeking it.

Your fencing contractor can help you find the best style of fence for your particular needs, but here’s a bit about the perks of a wood privacy fence.

Privacy

Obviously, if you’re adding a privacy fence, you’re doing so for privacy, but it’s still worth discussing as a benefit.

Your fence height will help determine just how much privacy you get, but even an average height fence gives you the private outdoor space you need. It helps deter crime and keeps kids and pets safe, too.

Is It Time to Add a Fence?

thinking about putting up a fence.

If your property doesn't already have a fence, or if it's an old or ineffective fence, you might be considering whether or not to invest in some new fencing.

Here are a few of the main reasons why adding a new fence might take top priority.

You Have Pets

If you are getting or have a dog or puppy, having fencing is one of the easiest ways to make sure they stay safe. Keeping your pets in the backyard helps ensure they don't get lost or injured, and it helps them play securely and know their limits.

If you don't have a fence, or if your current fencing isn't pet-friendly, consider adding a beautiful and safe fence to your property.

You Have Children

Even if your child is very young, you should still be thinking about fencing. As they grow older and spend time outside, you won't be able to watch them every moment, so having a fence helps keep them safe in the yard.

How to Grow Vines on Your Fence

Growing Vines on your fence

Growing vines on your fence is a lovely way to add some color and interest to your property, but there are some do’s and don’ts to be aware of. Not all fences are up to the task of handling vines, and not all vines are good for fences.

Finding the Right Plant

It’s a good idea to talk with your local greenhouse or garden center to find out which vines are best for your zone and your yard. This is especially important for vines that will be trained to climb fences because some vines are actually noxious weeds. Invasive species can wreak havoc on your fence and become unruly.

Finding the Right Fence for Your Dog

Fencing for dogs

Having the right fence is extremely important when you are a dog owner. Big dogs can jump too-small fences, and climbers can make short work of chain link. Smaller dogs can sometimes find ways underneath fences with gaps that are too large, and diggers will take advantage of gaps as well.

Let’s take a look at some of the things you’ll want to consider related to fencing and your dog.

Fence Height

The best advice for any dog breed is to get a 6-foot-tall fence. This is high enough for practically any breed. Smaller breeds will be okay with 4 or 5-foot fences, but go for 6 feet if you’re not sure, or just to be on the safe side.
