Fences and gates. Not the movie and not the founder of Microsoft, but the enclosing structures that almost every house should consider having.
In fact, in Robert Frost’s popular poem Mending Walls, he exclaimed the significance of garden fences and gates.
According to him, “good fences make good neighbors”.
There are various reasons why a household builds these structures. For a starter and probably the most important function, they give better security.
By having a fence around your property, you are given the power to protect your valuable belongings, while keeping out unwanted elements that might want to trespass or worse, do harm by crimes like robbery.
This is not only applicable to humans but also with critters.
There have been incidents of animals like bears and raccoons trespassing properties in the United States.
Putting up a fence surrounding your property would be a great investment to avoid this.
Likewise, having gates give you another layer of privacy.
Having concrete walls in your house probably would not suffice in shielding you from nosy neighbors.
Well, sometimes you have to chill outside in your garden or patio and enjoy a sip of a cold drink.
Privacy is very important to every homeowner. Logically, you would treat your outdoor space as just an extension of the indoors.
Having tall fences and thick gates would be much preferred if you want to have more privacy for your family.
Aside from security and privacy, fences also serve as boundary markers while gates are the entrance point. Both serve as the beginning and end to your property.
Having both of these can prevent unwanted clashes between neighbors because a boundary has been set.
These boundary markers can also serve as location markers for your property.
Other than maps, the color or design of these structures can function as landmarks if you are giving directions to someone coming to your house.
On the other hand, while we know that fences and gates conventionally function as an added layer of security, both can serve another purpose.
A well-constructed and designed fence can improve how your garden or landscape looks.
You have probably seen cozy homes with white picket fences in a lot of Hollywood movies, and then told yourself you wanted one.
The curb appeal that these structures give can also add value to your property if in case you have plans of selling it.
But the design or material used, whether made of wood, metal, and vinyl, would not be complete without a fitting color painted or stained on it.
Fences and gates without color may appear very bland to the eyes.
If you already have a fence or gate to your property, you might as well maximize things you can do with it.
While there are a lot of color options you can choose from, we listed a few that we think will give you the best value.
In choosing the color of your fence, there is really no “one size that fits all”.
The color would always depend on your taste and how you would want it to match your house and landscape.
There is no specific color that is perfect for everyone. But there is definitely one fitting to yours.
