Fence Consultants recommends planning for installation during fall or winter. Here’s why:
- It’s Ideal for Wood Fence Seasoning
Both wood and wood picket fences do well during colder months. Fall and winter weather provides these types of fences with enough time to season and allows for a slower, even dry time.
- It’s Better for Landscaping
Installing a fence can be challenging for landscaping. Completing the project during winter months can protect your plants because when they’re dormant, they don’t experience as much potential damage. If you must relocate plants for your fence project, winter is ideal, as it’s the time of year when they won’t take on potentially permanent damage. Additionally, grass will have gone dormant and won't be affected as dramatically by equipment and workers. Also, many perennials will remain protected under the soil as crews work above them.
- It Means Your Fence is Spring Ready!
If your fence is installed during fall or winter, you will be able to enjoy your new yard as soon as spring hits. You’ll have more time to spend outdoors, enjoying the great weather and planning summer activities.
