Spring is here, Yaay!
It is a season of new beginnings and positivity all around. So, how about you consider adding some privacy to your backyard oasis to get the full fun spring has to offer without the prying eyes of neighbors and passersby.
You’re also not just looking for any privacy fence; you want a fence that also lends a decorative style to your backyard.
So, how do you pick the right one?
There are so many beautiful and functional fences that offer privacy. They are mainly classified under which material they are made of. Some of these materials are:
- Stone, Brick, and concrete
- As well as vegetative fence
This means your right fence will depend on your style needs and budget.
Let’s check out how these fences compare.
The privacy of wood fences is unquestionable. You can use wood fences to create an entirely opaque backyard. Wood fences also have a lot to offer in terms of aesthetics; you can leave its natural form to shine, or you can paint it to match your home.
The only issue is wood requires the most maintenance compared to most privacy fences. You’ll need to see the way to protect it from elements.
These are strong, resistant to rotting, and easiest to maintain. You can get a tall fence with vinyl, taller than wood or stone can offer since it is lightweight.
Vinyl fences also come in various colors and styles, and they are easy to install.
The only catch is vinyl is quite expensive compared to wood or concrete fences. However, if you shift your focus to its low maintenance and the long life it offers, the upfront cost won’t be a big deal.
If you’re looking for a fence that offers maximum privacy and security from any form of intrusion or break-ins, a stone, brick, or concrete fence will do.
Not only do they bring a decorative style to your landscape, but they also have a lot to offer:
- Concrete is the most affordable
- Brick and stone give a beautiful natural vibe
- They are low maintenance
- And they can work perfectly for a border fence
Bring life into your backyard by planting shrubs, along with small trees to act as a privacy fence. They also offer better security, just like wood or concrete fences.
The catch is they require far more maintenance than these other fence options, and depending on where you live; living fences sometimes are not an option for everyone. There are building codes in some areas that restrict having a living wall.
So, which of these fences would you consider?
