Placing a fence around the back of a home may have many benefits for homeowners. People who do not have proper fencing around their property leave their home exposed to potential crimes. There are many reports every day that involve neighborhood crimes. Realizing how a fence provides security may help a person determine the advantages to placing a protective barrier around a backyard space. These units will not only provide top-notch security but also create a defined space for a backyard. Homeowners who do place a fence around their yard will help to keep their children and pets safe. Homes that are exposed to strangers may have an increased chance of being burglarized and of having outside items stolen from the property.
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.
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.
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.
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.
