It’s easy to underestimate the importance of fences.
Brushing them off as mere property boundaries or simple replacements for a fence that’s worn out.
However, when we dig a little deeper.
We discover the real reason why our client wants a new fence.
Has everything to do with things that go beyond simple aesthetics.
We find that the fence is actually a tool to solve a bigger problem.
So why do you really want a new fence?
The Solution is Not the Problem
Maybe you need to replace an old privacy fence.
The reason you need to replace the fence is not that it’s an old privacy fence.
The actual problem you’re looking to solve is likely related to one (or more) of the following:
- The need for privacy
- The need for security
- The need for freedom
- The need for peace of mind
- The need for order & beauty
- The need for clarity of boundaries
A new fence can solve some of the most basic human needs.
Sitting for a moment on your couch, and your loving pet dog needs to go out.
When you open the door to your back yard, you assume (you know) that Fido is safely roaming around the yard.
And will soon show you his please-let-me-back-in face.
As he’s roaming around, you’re at ease.
Knowing that he can’t wander off.
He’s contained within the safe confines of your backyard fence.
You have no fence around the back yard. Yikes!
It’s time to let Fido out.
You need to go outside with him. To stand and watch him… in the snow.
You need to make sure he doesn’t wander off, chase the neighbor’s dog, or run into some other calamity.
Life without a fence is harder than it needs to be.
Your fence allows you to mindlessly let your dog wander the yard.
While you catch up on social media or finish your Zoom meeting.
Peace of mind.
Freedom to do what YOU need to do.
That’s what a good fence gives you.
Now let’s look further.
10 Reasons Why You Might Need a New Fence
A fence provides a boundary to help you just live life.
1. Let the Children Run Free
An unfenced yard poses risks for young children who, driven by curiosity, might wander off.
A fence provides parents with peace of mind, knowing their kids can play outside safely without the danger of straying too far.
2. Keep Pets in Your Yard
As we already discussed, a house with a dog with a yard without a fence is bad news.
Whether it’s for a quick outdoor break early in the morning.
Or afternoon frolicking in the grass.
Your new privacy fence or wood and chain link fence ensures your pet has the freedom to move without you worrying about them running off or being in danger.
3. Protect Your Privacy
In neighborhoods where houses are built closely together, your backyard might be just a few steps away from your neighbor’s window or porch.
Fencing offers a buffer, ensuring you can enjoy your outdoor space without feeling like you’re in a fishbowl.
Your privacy fence protects your space and helps create a safe space for your family to just live life.
4. Strengthen Your Home Security
They say the best first line of defense when it comes to home security is a fence.
Beyond keeping loved ones in, fences are about keeping unwanted guests out.
Whether it’s opportunistic trespassers or simply neighbors cutting through…
A fence establishes a clear boundary and acts as a deterrent for potential intruders.
5. Enhance Your Property Value
New construction often sees houses without fences.
By adding one, homeowners not only ensure immediate functionality but also increase the property’s value and appeal for future buyers.
And replacing an old dilapidated fence can also increase property value.
6. Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Fences, when designed with beautiful aesthetics in mind.
Can elevate the look of your property.
Whether you are looking for a wood rail fence or premium fence products like FenceTrac or Ameristar.
…or more traditional wood, the right design can make a huge impact on curb appeal.
7. Live in Peace & Quiet
If you live near a busy street or noisy area.
Your fence can act as a sound barrier.
To reduce noise and help make your outdoor space more peaceful and enjoyable.
8. Define Property Lines
It’s crucial to know where your property starts and ends.
A good fence can help maintain peace and understanding between neighbors.
Fencing is an explicit marker of these boundaries, preventing disputes and misunderstandings with neighbors.
9. Keep the Wild Wildlife Out
In some areas, wild animals can pose a threat to pets, plants, and even people.
Here in Tulsa, we’ve got a diverse ecosystem that includes lots of wildlife inside the city.
Coyotes and even deer can cause unwanted problems in your yard.
A sturdy fence can keep wildlife at bay, protecting your garden and loved ones.
10. Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space
As Oklahomans we love our outdoor living spaces.
Nothing beats a relaxing evening on the patio or around the pool.
Those days offer time to chill with the people you care about.
Your fence provides a safe boundary to enjoy all that your backyard has to offer.
