Choosing The Right Height For Your Fence

Fence Height

Learn how your fence’s height is linked to how you use it.

When you’re choosing a fence for your home, you are met with a lot of options. From material to placement, you are asked to make a lot of choices when you’re having a fence installed. One of the most crucial factors about your fence, its height, is a choice that’s often overlooked. Your fence’s height is one of the most important aspects of it, because it’s closely linked to how you’ll be able to use it. Here are some factors that will help influence your fence’s height.

Privacy

If you’re looking to add some privacy to your property, adding a privacy fence to it will go a long way towards making that happen. These fences are a lot higher than average fences, which makes them perfect for the task of keeping prying eyes out. It’s important that when you’re adding a fence like this though that you consult your local homeowners’ association and that your fence is within the confines of your local building codes.

Location

Your fence’s location will have a large impact on how high it is. For example, if you’re installing a fence in your front yard you’ll want it to be shorter than the average fence for aesthetic and practical purposes. The fence that you install in your home’s backyard will likely need to be higher than the one you install in your front yard for privacy and security reasons. Think about where you’re placing your fence before deciding how tall it should be!

Pets & Children

If you have pets or children, you know how important it is to have a fence that keeps them in your yard and safe from danger. In the case that you have a large dog that often roams around your backyard, you’ll want to make sure your fence is high enough to keep them inside where they’re safe. The same can be said for children! It’s important to have a fence that’s high enough that your loved ones stay inside and that unwelcome people and animals stay out.
