An exposed house can also put the people who live in it at risk. Strangers can watch children and adults in the house go about their daily routines. Criminals who kidnap children sometimes will stalk their next potential victim before they make their kidnapping attempt. An open house with no fencing around it will allow criminals to view children in and out of their home. They can also watch the adults in the house leaving women exposed to potential sexual crimes. Criminals may see that a female is alone through her backyard windows and then try to enter her home. Knowing how a fence provides security against kidnapping and sexual assault crimes is important for family safety. A barrier around a yard will also help to provide some privacy and protection for the owners of the home.
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 wonderful thing about a double gate is that it functions as a single gate and the second gate leaf only opens when you choose for it to. When considering gate placement think of ease of entry and exit. You may want a gate close to the side door in a garage. A good place for a double gate is the side of the house close to the driveway. That way if you do need to get a vehicle through it you dont have to drive across the front yard. Gates in the back of the fence can be nice if you have a deep lot or back up to an easement. Gates into next door neighbors yards can also be nice but keep in mind if you or the neighbor sell the house the gate may not be welcome by the new occupant.
