It’s spring again, which means you’ll probably be spending much of your time mowing the lawn. Aside from the various other tasks you need to complete, don’t forget to take care of your fence. Here are some fence design tasks that you shouldn’t overlook this spring.
Determine the Purpose
Part of designing your fence involves figuring out why you need it. The first fence design task you need to complete is to determine the purpose of your fence. A privacy fence is different than an ornamental fence. Wood and chain link are suitable for the first purpose, while metal is a good choice for an ornamental decorated with finials and other embellishments.
Take Care of Your Fence
No matter what you plan on using your fence for, you need to take the proper care of it. Fence care includes cleaning and repairing any cracks or other signs of damage you see on the fence due to wind, rain, or other weather conditions. Adding new layers of paint and stain and power-washing away any stains may be needed, too. If you don’t want to fret over how much maintenance you need to do it, a vinyl fence might be the fence for you, since they are low-maintenance.
Check Local Regulations
Another part of proper fence design is to check local rules and regulations. Your homeowners association could be even more exacting than your town or city government about the type of fences and what materials you can use for the fence, along with how high you can make the fence.
Combine Different Materials
Our last tip is to try combining different fence materials. For instance, you could put ornamental fencing in your front yard to help boost the curb appeal while using a chain link fence in your backyard to keep your pets inside or a wooden fence to help protect your garden from wild animals.
