Why Installing A Fence Should Be A Priority When Buying A Home

Have you just moved into a home with a beautiful backyard that doesn't have a fence around it?  If so, you may be wondering if you should go without a fence or have a new one installed. Here are a few reasons why one of the first things you should do is install a fence.

Establish Your Property Line

When you are moving into a home, it's possible that the neighbors have some of their belongings placed along the property line.  This can make it a bit of an awkward situation as you decide what items on the property line belong to which person. That's why it is a good idea to have a fence installed and establish the exact property line now rather than later.  

You would have recently gotten a land survey done as part of the home buying process, which will spell out exactly where your property begins and ends. A fencing contractor will follow that land survey when installing a fence, which will solve any disputes you may have about the property line.  

Provide Privacy

Nobody wants nosey neighbors looking into your yard to see what you are doing. The easiest way to stop it is by putting up a privacy fence so that the neighbors cannot easily see into your yard. If you are the kind of person that doesn't want to be interrupted by other people when enjoying your backyard, a privacy fence can be the perfect solution to your problems. 

Contain Dogs

Do you not have a dog at the moment, but thinking of getting one in the future? Don't let the lack of a fence stop you from getting a companion. Install a fence right away so that you do not have to worry about installing one later when you're ready to get a dog. You'll be able to let the dog roam around on your property without needing direct supervision at all times. 

Keep Kids Safe

The same can be said about keeping your kids safe.  Having a fence off backyard means that they can play on a swing set and not have to worry about them wandering off the property in multiple blind spots. You'll have a main entrance that you can secure so that you know your kids won't go very far when playing.
