Over the last few weeks on our blog, we’ve been going through our outdoor living services, outlining ways that we can help homeowners build their ultimate backyard getaway. If you missed out on those, check them out here. This week we wanted to talk about fence installation. Fences offer a lot to any outdoor living space, both for function and aesthetics. Let’s explore both of those concepts in this week’s installment of our Outdoor Living Series.
The Visual Appeal of a Fence
When you think of beautifying your outdoor living space, fence installation probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. In reality, though, fences offer a great aesthetic value that often flies under the radar. A wooden fence around your property is a great way to incorporate the natural feel of your backyard landscaping, while ornamental metal fences speak for themselves in their name. We love black aluminum fencing on larger properties where we can landscape on both sides of the fence — it makes it look like the fence isn’t even there.
The Functional Value of a Fence
Just like with all the other outdoor living features we’ve discussed this month, looks are only part of the draw of fences. Even aesthetics alone is “functional” in that it can boost your home’s value on resale. Here are some other functions your backyard fence can have:
- Privacy: A privacy fence keeps your backyard oasis more secluded, without worrying about prying neighborhood eyes.
- Security: Some fencing options can boost the security of your home, blocking or at least deterring criminals from entering your yard. You also gain security against roaming wildlife like deer or raccoons that can damage your property.
- Safety: Fence installation brings a variety of safety features to your yard. A fence around the perimeter of your property will keep kids and pets from running away, while a fence around your pool is crucial in preventing poolside accidents (and is actually required by Maryland law.
