Your fence installation will change the way your home looks and functions. Before, you had only a yard to display, but now the first thing someone sees when they walk or drive by will be your fence. It will also change the dynamic of your home. Before, you may not have been able to let dogs or kids play unsupervised outside. But once your fence is installed, you’ll have a place all to your own that is safe from the outside world.
With this in mind, it’s important to intentionally design your fence around yours and your family’s needs. Below are some of the primary factors you should consider, in the typical order of priority for Tampa homeowners:
At FloriFence we want to offer products that create a safe space for your family to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether you’re trying to keep pets in or wildlife out, it’s important to consider your safety needs first when installing a fence. Do you have a pool that needs specialized fencing? What about little kids who need safe gate features and locks to ensure they don’t get injured? Ask your contractor about different fence options that will be safest for your home.
If you’ve chosen a safe fence, the next thing you’ll want to consider is how much security you need. If you are in a safe neighborhood and already have a security system installed, you may not be worried about security fencing. However, if you’re installing for a small business or have had issues with trespassing and burglary before, you may want a more sturdy fencing option to deter intruders. Security fencing can also be useful to keep wildlife off the property.
A privacy fence is typically a personal preference, but has unique advantages if you have a pool or spend a great deal of time in your backyard. Some homeowners choose picket or aluminum fencing which provide more visibility into appealing parts of the yard such as gardens and the home entrance. However, privacy fencing is a great option for backyards where you want to spend time with family.
Finally, you want to carefully consider the specific look you want your fencing to have. The aesthetic appeal isn’t just important now — it’s important 15 years from now when you still have the same fence and you’re trying to renovate or sell the home. By investing in quality, you’re making your aesthetic choices last.
