Do you need a new fence for your yard or farm? Whether you desire more privacy in your outdoor space, need to block animals in, mask a street view, secure your pool, or keep your dog from running, Central Fence can handle it. Here’s all the need-to-know information on choosing the right fence based on your unique space and needs:
Decide If You Want To Gain Privacy
If you want true privacy, choose a fence with little to no space between boards. A closely spaced lattice can be nearly as private as a solid material if you have a trees and bushes around. Stand up and measure each area of your yard and the street outside to see if the fence will be high enough for your privacy needs. In these situations, a vinyl privacy fence is chosen because it can keep prying eyes away, while still looking nice.
Consider Your Need To Feel Secure
If you want a fence for security, the most important features to have are a tall height, a lack of places to grip and climb up, and a sturdy, lockable gate. Any security fence should be at least 8 feet high. Remember to choose a fence with flush boards, often made of wood, but with no horizontal rails that a potential intruders could attempt to climb.
Think About Who You Want To Keep In Or Out
You must know your pets or farm animals and their habits in order to pick the correct fence. Do they dig? How high can they jump? Are they likely to try to escape from your yard, or are they generally content to just walk around and eat? A 3- to 4-foot fence should be adequate for a small dog while a herd of goats or cattle will need something taller and stronger.
Know the Importance of Securing your Pool
Even if you do not have children in your home, it is important to take steps to secure your swimming pool. Friends or family with children could visit, or neighborhood kids could try to sneak into your pool without your knowledge. It’s also possible for animals to fall in. Your homeowner’s insurance could possibly require this so there are no liability issues, so be on the safe side by securing your pool from any unwanted guests.
