October 6th, 20143 Tips for Making Your Yard More Private
Homeowners often strive to make their yards more private. As a fencing company, we receive a good portion of our calls and emails from homeowners who are hoping to add some privacy to their outdoor living space. Fencing works exceptionally well for this purpose and can definitely help in making your yard more private and secure.
As an experienced fencing company, we know all about the many benefits of adding a fence to your property. In our opinion, installing a high-quality fence is the #1 way to add some privacy to your yard. A tall privacy fence also has the added benefit of increasing the security of your property and home.
A tree, multiple trees, a hedge or an assortment of plants can all help to add privacy to your yard. However, make sure you fully think through what you are planting. You want to plant the right things for your space and home. If the trees you’re considering planting are going to be blocking all your sunlight in 20 years, you may want to reconsider the type of tree you are planting. Don’t forget about how much the roots might grow, as well as the maintenance involved. Make sure you are making a sound decision when it comes to privacy landscaping - one that is going to work for you long-term.
Of course, one of the many benefits of a fence is that they don’t grow! The dimensions of your fence today will be exactly the same in 30 years’ time!
Your lovely new fence from A & G Fencing may give you visible privacy from the neighbours, but audible privacy is another matter. While fences can help to reduce the noise in your yard, and dampen the noise that you make, it isn’t likely to create a “cone of silence”. If you feel like all your conversations can be overheard, consider installing a water feature in your yard. This will help to muffle any sound and help your conversations to remain private.
