Are you planning to install fences around your house? Do fences do more than just give protection and privacy to your house? Robert Frost the American poet rightly pointed out that Good fences make good neighbors. When you install fences around your house your dog would not be able to run out of your house and bark at people. This helps build good relationships in the community. Fences also add to the beauty of your home and garden and make it a secure place to live in.
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.
Some children enjoy playing outside and may request to do so on more than one occasion. The backyard could be set up for children to play with mini playground structures picnic tables and sand toys. When there is no protective barrier around the yard children will be exposed to the potential of strangers. Criminals can approach children quickly and engage in a conversation with them. It does not take long to have a child kidnapped right from their own yard. Parents who leave their children in the backyard and watch them from the window could have a false sense of trust as they believe that their own backyard is safe. The truth may be that quiet neighborhoods are as much at risk as city backyard spaces. When a criminal walks down the street and sees a child playing alone it could put that child at risk for being taken. The Department of Justice has reports of many children who go missing every day; many of these crimes happen in their own neighborhood.
People who place their pets in the backyard on leashes may be placing them in harms way. That is because tying a dog or cat on a leash in the backyard could put them at risk for an animal attack. Coyotes will often prey on backyard animals as their choice of meals. When a pet is exposed to the wild and is tied on a leash it can put them in danger from other animals both wild and domestic. Pets in the backyard are also at risk of being kidnapped by a person. Criminals who want a dog but do not want to pay for one may see a pet tied up in a yard and simply put it in their car. Popular breeds may be more at risk than just average mutts. Expensive breeds and puppies may be at a greater risk for theft. Puppies and pure-bred dogs can be kidnapped and sold for profit. The Department of Justice has reports of many pet thefts and discusses the profit that can come from it.
The good thing about fences is that they are a great way to change the looks of your house without actually making any changes to it and that building a new fence will present to you all the possibilities in terms of material color and style so you have complete control over this home improvement project. The classic house fence is the white picket fence this has been associated with the perfect American family life the fences symbolize a protected environment of a whole community that is united in its perception of life and living.
