If you’ve noticed that your garden fence is looking a bit shabby lately, you’ve probably thought about getting around to doing something about it later. Somehow though, that later never comes!
Replacing your fence can sometimes be a job that falls to the bottom of the list, but it’s one that actually comes with a lot of upsides once you get it done.
One of the main reasons that a good quality fence is a must-have for your garden is the privacy it affords you.
By installing a fence that is tall enough to keep your garden from being overlooked and solid enough to prevent people from peering through any gaps, you’ll be able to enjoy your garden with peace of mind that you have your privacy.
A tall fence is an essential part of home security, particularly if your home backs on to vacant land. If your back garden doesn’t have a fence, it makes it easy for would-be burglars to access your garden, and therefore the rest of your home. Installing a fence makes it much more difficult for them, and therefore less likely that your house will be targeted.
A solid fence also means that burglars can’t see into your property as easily, and if they don’t know what’s inside, they are less likely to bother trying to break in.
If you get it right, a fence can actually help you to sell your home and possibly even increase the value.
If fencing is important to a potential buyer, then seeing that a good quality fence has already been installed tells them that’s a job that they can tick off their list, which is a point in the pros column when they’re deciding whether or not to buy your house.
How effective this will be is based on the type of buyer you’re hoping to attract. For example, families with young children and pets will be likely to be impressed by a secure fence.
When you are choosing your fence, it’s a good idea to choose low maintenance and eco-friendly material such as the ones by eComposite Products.
If you choose a good quality fence now, it’s one less job for you to do later! And eco-friendly material means that you have another plus point for impressing potential buyers in the future.
Protection for your plants
We all know that plants need sunlight and water, but did you also know that some types of plants also need shade?
Fencing is a great way to ensure that your plants have all of the shade they need, with the added bonus that you get to decide where it is, which means you can choose your gardens aesthetic.
Keep your pets safe
If you have a dog, be sure to choose a fence that can be sunk deep enough into the ground to prevent them from digging their way out, and that is high enough to prevent them from climbing over!
A sturdy fence will give you peace of mind when your pooch is playing outside.
Keep your kids safe
Kids are naturally inquisitive, and it’s easy to turn your back for a second and find that they have wandered off! A strong fence will ensure that if they wander off, at least it’s within your home.
