While any fence serves to define the boundary of your property, a privacy fence can provide special benefits that you might not have considered.
Since it is typically much taller and serves to block the view of your property from the outside, a privacy fence can be a good option for many homeowners. You will want to be informed about all the features before making your final decision, and the following outlines some benefits for your consideration.
When used in conjunction with landscaping materials, you can form a beautiful setting or define an area of your yard. In fact, the height of a privacy fence may allow it to serve as a “wall” to enclose a new and trendy Outdoor Room – whether it is an outdoor kitchen, dining area, pool scape, spa or some other personal space taking advantage of the outdoors. Consider the possibilities.
Perhaps more than any other type of perimeter barrier, a privacy fence will offer your property some shelter from the elements. The fence will act as a windbreaker, protecting you and whatever it encloses from the effects of wind. Moreover, it will often also offer shade from the sun, depending on the layout in relation to your house.
A yard confined within a privacy fence will serve to keep out intruders – including the neighborhood animals – and it keeps your property hidden from prying eyes. At the same time it keeps your children and pets within the boundary, especially since they cannot see beyond the fence and be tempted to stray.
Typically, the height and solid construction of a privacy fence can lessen the amount of noise that your yard suffers from the outside so that it is not as intrusive as it would be with another type of fence or with no barrier at all. In addition, it will help to danpen the noise coming from your yard making you a considerate neighbor.
