Another way to see how a privacy fence provides security is in protecting against theft of outdoor items in the backyard. These items may be at risk for being stolen when there is no fence around the space. Grilling stations patio sets and bikes are sometimes stolen from backyards. When there is no fence to protect the items in the back criminals may see the items and take them for themselves. Crime statistics can be viewed in different neighborhoods and the rate of stolen backyard items is increasing with new houses being built.
Now that you know what the HOA will allow its time to plan the placement of your fence. Some HOAs require the fence to be on the property lines while others will let you place the fence in from the property line to allow for shrubs. The HOA will also tell you how far up the house you can come such as the rear corner 20 from the rear corner or to the front of the house. Decide what works best for you and meets HOA regulations. Gate placement is also an important factor in fence layout. I usually suggest two gates- one on each side of the house. I also suggest making one of those gates a double gate. A double gate allows to you to get larger items in your back yard such as a vehicle a shed a play set or anything else.
After you decide where to place the fence you need to pick a fence design you like. Since this series of articles is on wooden fencing I will tell you about common wood fence styles. The great thing about wood is the design is almost endless. Most fence contractors are also skilled carpenters and can help you design and build a fence that is unique to your tastes. With that being said there are common fence designs. Dog Ear Scalloped Arched or Half Moon Flat Top Shadow box Board on Board Spaced Picket and Trim Top are some of the most common fences we install. Some of the fence styles can mix such as an arched shadow box or a scalloped board on board. The easiest way to see pictures of these designs is to go to Google images and type in the fence style followed by the word fence.
The last thing to consider is costs and the degree of which you want to be involved you should look for fence kits and ask yourself if you really want to make the whole fence from scratch or would you rather have a starters kit to make the process a little shorter. Always remember that you can call in the experts to do the work for you and if you choose to do this for the fence task you should try and get them to do the most professional work possible.
Putting up fences does not sound like the most liberal and free loving idea but it is an extremely practical way of using your house area and making the most of your space not to mention that fences are by nature protective and important for the house security. Every house has its land and its territory usually marked by some kind of feature that has been decided upon some times this is not a conscious decision and some times it is a result of poor planning or just not having enough time and energy to deal with defining the boarders of the property.
