Benefits of Having a Fence Around Your Yard

Like many home improvement projects, opting to put a fence around your home is a big decision. But as the professionals at Fence Consultants of West Michigan know, whether it’s a wood fence, wire fence, chain link fence, or garden fence, you can rest assured that your fence installation will be well worth it; an investment you won’t regret. Here are a few of the benefits of having a fence around your yard:

  1. Security. When a house is not fenced, it becomes more attractive to would-be intruders. A fence will help prevent prying eyes and deter potential break-ins.
  2. Protection. In addition to keeping unwanted guests out, fencing can help keep children and pets in. A fence allows the littlest members of the family to play safely within the perimeters of your property.
  3. Aesthetics. Fencing is practical, but it can help keep things looking good, too. If you happen to live next to someone who has an unkept or unattractive yard, wood or vinyl fencing can be great for creating an attractive property enclosure.
  4. Sound barrier. Wood and vinyl fencing can also serve as sound barriers. Homes in neighborhoods near major highways or train tracks can benefit from fencing that will help impact the amount of sound that enters your home.
  5. Land encroachment protection. A proper fence installation will be done in a way that measures and defines the perimeter of your property. Your completed fencing will then serve as a physical measurement of the length and breadth of your land, preventing encroachment by neighbors who may not be aware of land boundaries.
  6. Increased home value. In most cases, a property with fencing is worth more than one without. A professionally installed fence will add both value and curb appeal and will make your home more attractive to parents or pet owners should you ever decide to sell.
