There are many homeowners who choose to install fencing in their backyards. Something that isn’t as common, however, is the installation of a fence in the front yard. We’re here to tell you that fences in the front yard can be just as beneficial as those in backyards. Getting a fence installed in your front yard is beneficial to your property for many reasons.
Added Safety for Pets and Children
For homeowners with pets or kids, you’ll value their safety highly. By having a fence installed, you’ll be able to put your mind at ease whenever they’re out playing in your front yard. Fences provide an effective barrier that prevents pets and children from accidentally wandering out of your yard and into potential danger. It’s even helpful to have a front yard fence if you have guests with pets and/or children for the same reasons.
We recommend picket fences for anyone living in quiet neighborhoods. For people living in more crowded areas, fences made of iron are preferred for additional protection.
Fences Are Great When You Have a Patio or Porch
Safety isn’t the one benefit that a fence can provide for your home; they’re also great for giving you extra privacy if you want. If you’re in your yard often, the extra privacy becomes more valuable. Those with patios and porches often appreciate having this additional privacy because these features entice homeowners to stay outside longer, and it’s good to have privacy when you’re outside enjoying your yard.
The downside to privacy fences is that your yard becomes blocked off. Lattice screens address this problem seamlessly. If you want more beauty for your fencing, you can go with a shorter fence, then add foliage for greater aesthetic appeal, which brings us to our next point.
Front Yard Fencing Makes Your Home More Aesthetically Pleasing
Along with safety and privacy, you also get extra curb appeal with a front yard fence. You’ll have to decide if curb appeal is the main benefit you hope to gain from your fencing because this influences how tall it should be. Fences built primarily for curb appeal are often shorter, allowing for more visibility into your yard. This is perfect when you want to show off your front yard to passersby. Picket fences are the perfect selection when curb appeal is the main goal for your fence because they can be customized in many manners to suit the looks your home has.
