3 Ways to Put Fences Around Small Properties

3 Ways to Put Fences Around Small Properties

Fencing around smaller properties can be slightly different than larger ones.

Depending on the size of your yard, it could be hard to find the right fence. You’re worried about several different factors: the height of the fence, what material it should be made of, how long it should be, and if you need permits for it. Here are some ideas for when you need to put fences around smaller properties.

Let There Be Light

One idea is to keep it simple. Start by letting the light in where there wasn’t light before. By doing this, you can take advantage of the longer days and shorter nights that spring and summer typically feature. Wood and vinyl fences are good choices for building walls that promote privacy, but you also don’t want to box yourself in, because that can get claustrophobic. Wrought iron and chain link fences are better ideas when you want to play around with how much light reaches the interior of your yard. This can also make a huge difference when you’re trying to start a garden and need to control the amount of shade or sunlight that reaches your home.

Choose A Short Fence

Another idea is to go with a shorter fence. While this sounds counterproductive at first, it can also make a noticeable difference. That’s why you can make the fences shorter instead of taller; this doesn’t mean you use five feet of fencing where it needs to be ten feet long, but rather four feet high instead of seven. However, a low fence may be a bad idea if you’re concerned about children or pets getting out and finding themselves in a busy street. Talk to a fence building expert to see what you should do next.

Pick a Different Color

Sometimes all you have to do is to pick a different color. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your entire weekend just to make a change. Brown, black, and navy blue will make your small property feel smaller, so go with white, gray, green, or green instead.
