A backyard fence is often a no-brainer for homeowners who are seeking more privacy, a secure perimeter or who want to keep their pets near home. But what about a front-yard fence? What are the benefits of a new structure in your front yard?
Here are some considerations when it comes to thinking about closing in your front space:
City or county rules: It is a great idea to check with your city or county regarding ordinances on any type of fencing before you launch the process. If you are part of an HOA, there may be certain rules regarding fencing, especially in your front yard, where it is more visible. There may be restrictions regarding height and material that will go into any decision.
Trends around you: Take a stroll or drive around your neighborhood. You may find that there is a trend of what your neighbors are doing that can help guide your decision. Front fencing is often classic white picket or wrought iron.
Your home’s look: The architecture of your home is also a guide toward your best-looking front fence. The fencing becomes part of your curb appeal, so you want to make sure that something new is a complementary style element and not a distraction. You can really update your overall look with a beautiful new fence!
Gaining access: If you are fully enclosing your front yard, you need to have an access point. You can consider more than one gate, placement of the gate near your driveway or at the center near your front door. When you are adding a front fence, consider whether it will tie into any backyard fencing or if you may install a backyard fence in the future.
Accents: Once your new front fence is installed, you can really add another element of style through landscaping, decorative rocks or flowers that are especially vital to your home’s look when they are on display for all passers-by to see.
