Fences / April 15, 2015
Most homes have a fence or wall around at least the backyard portion of their landscape. But, just like anything with a home, over time, fences and walls begin to look a bit worn and weathered. And, if your home does not have a fence or wall around a portion of its property and you have a pet or child you know how frustrating it can be. Updating or adding a fence or wall to your property can add not only a great deal of value but a significant amount of aesthetic appeal as well.
Whether you are spending time in your landscape, entertaining guests or just want your home to look its best, it may be time to add a fence or replace your existing fence. You can have a beautiful landscape but it will surely look less beautiful if the fence or wall is falling apart, paint is peeling, or it is just generally looking a bit decrepit. Fences and walls add privacy and protection but the type you choose also makes a statement about your style. For instance, wood fencing comes in a variety of sizes, styles and finishes. It could be left to show the natural wood look or it could be painted or stained a variety of shades to match your home’s style. Additionally, wood fencing can be laid in a wide variety of patterns to really put your own spin on your landscape. Brick or cinderblock fencing can also be installed for a different look. These materials lend themselves to more modern styles or minimalist landscape looks. It is important to remember that while a fence establishes property lines and provides an important service by keeping pets or children safely contained, a fence or wall will impact the look of your landscape. By customizing the look, it significantly enhances the appearance of your landscape. Just like you carefully choose plants, trees, flowers, pavers, natural stone and more for your landscape, you should also carefully choose your fence or wall materials so that the entire appearance of the landscape flows well and coordinates. Each material weathers differently so its general appearance and aesthetic addition to your landscape will vary over time. Choose a material that will suit your needs not only now but as it spends some time outside in the elements as well. In addition to surround your property or a portion of your property, you can also use the same materials to fence off a portion of your landscape such as a garden or it could possibly be used as a retaining wall as an element of your landscape. When it comes to fences or walls, there is a style for every individual and every home, they add value, provide privacy and protection and can play an important role in setting the tone for look and feel of your landscape.
