Benefits of a privacy fence

Last summer I was determined to make some improvements to the outdoor space of my home.

I hoped to create a peaceful and private area where my family could relax, enjoy each other’s company and entertain guests.

As I planned for an outdoor kitchen, seating area, shade canopies and the possibility of a hot tub, I realized that our backyard was far too exposed. I needed to make the area feel secluded. Installing a privacy fence was the perfect solution. Because of the fence, we can use the space at any time of the day or night without worrying about someone observing our activities. Along with shielding us from the neighbors and passersby, the fence helps to protect us from the elements. It acts as a windshield, prevents an abundance of leaves and debris from getting swept into the lawn and even makes the yard feel a bit warmer. It’s a relief not to get hit by a gust of wind and have our hair whipped into our faces when we sit inside. A major benefit of the fence is increased safety. The fence is constructed without gaps, eliminating the risk of the kids or dog wandering into the street. It also discourages outsiders from entering our property. We live in a fairly traffic heavy neighborhood. The cars whipping by are not only a danger but noisy. They create fumes. The fence helps to muffle and reduce disruptive sounds. It blocks the dust and odors from traffic and keeps our outdoor area cleaner. We still hear the neighbor mowing his lawn or trimming his shrubs, but the noise level isn’t quite as loud or disruptive. We no longer have a wide open view of the neighbors or street. We aren’t forced to look at the neighbor’s garbage cans or the camper he has never gotten around to fixing. The fence obscures the view and also is quite attractive. It’s modern and clean looking, and I’ve added some shrubs, flowers and bird feeders to add points of interest. I love sitting outside with a cup of coffee in the mornings and spotting hummingbirds, cardinals or chickadees.
