We may be a little biased, but we think just about every home could use a backyard fence! If you need convincing, here are 5 great reasons to add a fence to your backyard…
#1 – Safety
Installing a backyard fence provides several levels of safety for your family. If you have a pool, a fence is actually required for the safety of children. Living in close quarters with others can present issues when it comes to keeping your backyard safe and free from unwanted visitors. Whether those visitors are animal or human, a fence will deter others from entering your yard.
#2 – Privacy
Most of us enjoy spending time in our backyard in the warm months cooking out, entertaining family and friends and playing with our kids. If you’re like most, you don’t necessarily want to feel like you are ‘on display’ in your yard. Installing a privacy fence will help keep your yard out of view from nosy neighbors!
#3 – A Place for Animals
In most counties in Maryland, animals are required to have protective fencing. If you own a dog, you can meet country requirements by tethering your dog on a leash, however installing a fence is a more favorable option for both you and your pet. For you, it means you can simply open the door and let your dog out to play or do his business. For your dog, he has the freedom to run and explore without tugging a leash.
#4 – Beauty
Fencing can not only add safety and security to your yard, but it can add an element of beauty as well. Fencing comes in a wide variety of styles and colors to compliment any home. Metal fencing with stone posts adds a rich and sophisticated look. Wood fencing can add an element of rustic charm. Browse fence styles and you will see that no matter what style you prefer, there is sure to be a fence that matches it.
#5 – Value
Although we own our homes to provide shelter for our own families, there comes a time in everyone’s life when they will sell their home. With that in mind, it is wise to spend the time that you are in your home keeping it up to date. Adding a fence to your yard can add to your home’s re-sale value, as home buyers often search for homes that need little in the way of updates. Home buyers with pets, for instance, will search for homes with fences for their animals, and may not even consider a home that does not already have a fence.
In short, while we are partial to installing fencing, there are many great reasons to own one. If you are looking to add a fence to your backyard, contact Tri County Fence & Decks today at 301-916-2205 for your free fence estimate in Maryland.
