Part 2: Five Situations where you'll be Glad You Have a Privacy Fence

In Part 1 of this series, we discussed three of the five scenarios where you may want your privacy. Here are the remaining two situations that you'll want to consider.

4.) Tending to your garden

When it comes to tending to a garden or caring for your property, a considerable amount of your time may be involved. Gardening is a common hobby that many people find to be a calming and reflective time. You likely do not want an audience and a privacyfence can help with that.

Additionally, having a fence can also keep out curious children (and on occasion adults) that may want to pick your flowers or produce. It can also keep out animals that would love to eat your plants.

5.) Your home will be less visible

Depending on the height of your fence and windows, it can make it difficult or even impossible for people to look inside of your home. Your privacy while in the safety of your home is important and should be protected, especially if your home is within close proximity to the street or to neighboring homes.

Additionally, the privacy gained by a fence will make it more difficult for any potential burglars or trespassers to try to figure out how they would find their way into your home. If someone has a limited view of a home's security system, how the house is laid out, or even what's inside, this makes it a lot less likely they'll try to target your house for a break-in.

As you can see, there are many situations where a privacy fence benefits you. Please contact us at Allstar Fence and Deck so we can help you find the right fence for your home.

Part 1: Five Situations where you'll be Glad You Have a Privacy Fence

People choose to get a fence put in around their residence for a variety of reasons. They may want to improve the overall appearance of their property, or perhaps use a fence for additional safety. These are great reasons to have a fence installed, but a fence can also help in maintaining your family's privacy. When it comes to the benefits of having a privacy fence, there are many to be listed. Here are five situations that you'll be glad you have a privacy fence for.

1.) Children playing in your yard

Whether it's your own kids, grandchildren, or the children of your friends or family, it's a good idea to have a privacy fence around your property. A fenced in yard can keep them safer, so they are unable to wander outside of it, but it can also keep them out of the view of potential predators, which could help to prevent them from ever becoming a target.

2.) Soaking up the sun


If you want to lie out on your lawn and relax while soaking in the sun, you will appreciate having the privacy of a fence as it will keep you from becoming a public spectacle. On the other hand, if you have a pool, having a fence around it will provide a much safer environment.

3.) When you invite company over


If you invite family or friends over to your home for a cook-out, you won't need to worry about being watched closely by neighbors or those passing by. You’ll want your guests to feel comfortable, and not be in the direct view of others.

You may have noticed that we only listed three of the five reasons we promised… Check out part 2 of this post (coming soon!) for the two remaining situations in which you'll enjoy a privacy fence.
