The house next door to mine remained vacant for quite a few years.
Although my husband and I weren’t thrilled with the neglected condition of the property, we enjoyed the quiet and privacy.
We allowed a heavy screen of vines, bamboo and other greenery to grow up along the property line. About six months ago, a guy bought the neighbor house. His first project was thinning out the vegetation separating our houses. Despite having no central air conditioning, a leaking roof and broken windows, his priority was opening up the tree line. My husband and I hoped that he was just trimming branches. Instead, he removed larger trees, chopped down shrubs and destroyed our privacy. I don’t want a view of his ugly house. I don’t want to wave to my neighbor every time I step out my front door. My husband and I discussed our various options and decided a privacy fence was the best solution. We chose to hire a professional fencing company to get the job done right and completed quickly. The fencing company has experience with local laws and regulations. They have the machinery to put up the fence safely and ensure its stability and longevity. Although there are lots of fencing materials available, we went with wood because of the price. The wood fence was way more economical than vinyl and yet provides the same level of concealment. We needed such a long length of fence that this was the only option for our budget. We are very happy with the look and function of the fence. The upkeep is minimal. We simply spray the fence with a sealant every spring and so far, it’s maintained a like-new appearance.
