Top 5 Benefits of a Garden Fence

Do you want to make your property stand out? Increase its kerb appeal? Keep intruders at bay? A new garden fence holds many of the answers!

If you are looking to make improvements to the exterior of your home, garden fencing comes with many benefits. Not only does it enhance the look of your outdoor space, garden fencing will ensure that unwanted visitors are kept well away, whilst providing protection and security for children or animals.

Carrying out work on your garden or home can be stressful and overwhelming, but when it comes to fencing, all you need to do is choose the perfect fence style to suit your preferences. At Direct Fencing & Contracting, we are here to do all the hard work and can guarantee that the advantages of a high-quality and sturdy garden fence are more than worth it!

Here are five key benefits of a garden fence that highlight what an excellent investment they can be:

Security

The main advantage is the security protection that a garden fence offers. Installing high-quality garden fencing is an ideal preventative solution to protect your home from any passers-by, unwanted animals, or even any potential intruders. We install many types of garden fencing, and can help find the right one for you, according to the level of security or look and feel that you would like your outdoor space to have. And not only do they protect against unwanted visitors, garden fencing helps keep your children and animals safe too, by ensuring a closed and secure perimeter.

Close board fence panels are a very popular choice for an attractive, contemporary screen fence, providing durability, strength and security. Additionally, they are easy to repair and low maintenance, as you only need to replace a damaged board rather than a whole panel. If you are interested in installing a garden fence for security, it is best to speak to an experienced contractor who can advise the best solution for you.

Privacy

Maybe you have your neighbour’s house overlooking your garden space, or they can see you dining alfresco through the gaping gaps in the hedge. If this is the case, chances are you want your own enclosed space, and we don’t blame you. 

A garden fence offers exceptional privacy, allowing you to have gatherings with friends and family in seclusion – and sunbathe on a rare warm British day in peace! Additionally, children can play safely outside with the fence keeping unwanted strangers away and out of sight. Garden fencing is an ideal solution to ensure you are not disturbing your neighbours, or more importantly, they are not disturbing you, enabling you to keep up good relations and create a happy neighbourhood. 

If you already have a beautiful and charismatic garden wall but are after more privacy, rather than an entirely new fence, we can install a stylish and colourful fence extension to make your space private and perfect for you.

Divider 

If you share an outdoor space with a neighbour, whether it be around your home, workplace or land, fences are a perfect way to divide up this space, so you know which is yours and can create a clear boundary. Fences are also a simple and effective way to keep your plants separate, either for aesthetic reasons or to separate them from a neighbour’s over-zealous pruning. They also offer a distinctive border between children’s play areas and garden plots, keeping children safe and your plants unharmed.

Shelter

Another great benefit of garden fences is that they offer a little extra protection and shelter against the elements. Wind, rain, snow, the blazing sun? Not to worry! Fences can act as a windbreaker and generate shade for your garden, depending on the positioning of your fence. Perfect for saving your property, family, plants and garden furniture from unpredictable weather!

Decoration

Do you want to create a stylish look for your garden as well as adding privacy and security? Our last key benefit, and one of the most important to some, is decoration! A high-quality garden fence can bring structure, style, protection, and a great deal of joy to your outdoor space. We have experience with many different styles and materials of fencing, such as pressure treated timber, contemporary metal, plastics, and traditional hardwood, so you can transform your garden into the exact style you’re looking for. From two-panel statement fences to stylish colours, there’s no limit to your imagination.
