Installing a fence is one of the easiest ways to add curb appeal to your new home. With the right style and professional installation service, your home will stand out from the rest and be more practical for your kids and pets. However, there are ways in which you can increase the curb appeal of a simple fence design to really up the aesthetic value of your home.
Below are five ways we encourage customers to customize their fences for both curb appeal and increased property value:
Choose a fun color
White and natural wood colors are the most popular for fencing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t jazz it up with a cool grey, seagrass, dark navy, or even black fencing with the right design. Your home’s style and external colors will aid in the selection of an appropriate fence color. However, don’t be afraid to step a little outside the box for something truly stunning.
Keep it cleaned
One of the easiest ways to make a simple fence stand out is by cleaning it on a schedule. Most homeowners have a “set it and forget it” attitude when it comes to fencing, and while it may not cause any damage, your fence will look much better with annual cleaning and lubrication of the hinges. This is especially important for white painted or powder coated fences, where dirt and grass stains really stand out.
Add a hanging planter
Planters are a fun way to add some life and color to your new fence. All FloriFence installations are built to be able to withstand some weight, so a small planter box or hanging flower basket can easily be added after a few days. However, don’t add too much weight, or you could end up with a sagging fence.
Customize your gate
With FloriFence, you have a variety of customizable gate options for wood, vinyl, aluminum, and even chain link fencing. We can create single or double-door gates with custom toppers, hitches, and more. Want a more rustic appearance? Add a metal hitch to your wood fence for a classic barnyard look. Or, looking for something more modern? Add an arched gate to your aluminum fences to impress guests. No matter what your vision may be, we can do it.
Add seasonal decorations
If you want to enhance your home’s curb appeal without adding to your renovation budget, try rotating seasonal decor items. Spring and summer flower baskets will add a lively touch to your home, while autumn wreaths and holiday lights will create a festive appearance in the winter.
