Top 5 Benefits of Fencing

Fences offer many benefits to an outdoor space: here are just five of them...

  1. Security and Safety. Fences are proven to act as a deterrent to intruders and trespassers, improving the security of the structure they surround. As well as keeping uninvited guests out, a fence also stops children and pets from getting out, ensuring that they stay safe when playing in the garden.
  2. Clear Boundaries. A fence acts as an unmissable boundary between properties, preventing accidental or intentional trespassing. Boundaries that are not properly delineated can cause disag­re­ements but a fence is easily understood by anyone.
  3. Improved Privacy. Our gardens should be private places for us to relax in and enjoy. A fence can help to deliver that privacy and also make a good natural line for trees to be planted along, further enhancing privacy levels.
  4. Improved Aesthetics. Most fences are built for purely practical reasons but the fact is that a carefully-chosen visual style can dramatically increase the aesthetic value of a property. The fence will add a strong sense of structure to the outdoor space.
  5. Weed Prevention. No matter how hard you try to keep your garden weed-free, the results will depend on the vigilance of your immediate neighbours at doing the same. A fence can help to prevent weed transfer, keeping your garden looking great. If the damage has already occurred, treat it with ultra-effective Weedol weedkiller, also available from Greengate's.
