Our yards are an extension of our home and therefore we look to ensure that we have the same level of privacy when it comes to spending time in the exterior of our property as we do when inside our homes. With the compact nature of properties today, it can be hard to avoid outside gazes even when within our own property. This is where the addition of a quality privacy fence can provide you with the freedom and security you’re looking for.
Privacy fences are designed to conceal your yard from neighbors and passersby and may also lend a decorative element to your landscape. There are many different styles of privacy fences, but they can be categorized and compared based on the material used to build them. Masonry, vinyl, wood or vegetative fences offer different advantages and disadvantages, so the privacy fence that’s right for you depends on your needs, budget and time.
Planting hedges, shrubs or small trees along your property lines can provide a living privacy fence that isn’t as restricted by local bylaws and building codes. In yards where space is at a premium, columnar evergreens such as Italian cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) provide a simple solution for privacy in mild or Mediterranean climates. Living fences add a natural appeal to your yard, which is useful if you’re limited on planting space, but they require far more maintenance than your basic fence materials. Hedges and shrubs must be trimmed and properly maintained, and they don’t offer the security against intruders that a wood or concrete fence provides.
Having a pool on your property is one of those benefits that many homeowners in the city strive towards and ensuring that you can enjoy your pool in privacy and safety can be an important aspect of this installation choice. This can be especially beneficial when it comes to homes with younger children in order to serve both as a means of privacy and access control. Whatever the reason behind your privacy fence, you can depend on our experts to put the full weight of our experience behind delivering a result that you can count on for efficiency and aesthetic benefit.
