privacy fences to block out your neighbor

Having neighbors can be a blessing, but it can also be very difficult. Having good neighbors that you can trust, that you like spending time with, and that aren't much of a problem can make living in your home much more enjoyable. Unfortunately, not every neighbor is a good neighbor. If you have an irritating neighbor that you don't exactly trust or want to spend time with, it may be time for you to invest in a nice privacy fence to divide the properties. My blog will show you the options of privacy fences that you have to consider to block out your not-so-enjoyable neighbor.

Tired of Trespassers or Nosy Neighbors? Get a Gate!

Want to keep people off your property? If your fence isn't impeding nosy neighbors or others from accessing your yard or garden space, install a fence. This will provide you with additional security for your home and will send a distinct message to anyone using your property as a thru-way.

First, look at your fence. When choosing the right gate for your property, it usually comes down to the type of fencing that you are providing an entry and exit for. It makes the most sense to approach the same venue where you purchased your fencing or to contact the contractor who constructed it to have them make recommendations pertaining to installation of a gate. This will prevent incompatibility of your new gate with your existing fence, due to size or other factors.

Some things to consider before installing your fence include:

  • Regardless of the type of gate that you buy, spend more to have galvanized steel hardware. This will hold up well under pressure and over time.
  • Paint or stain your gate to complement your fence or home's exterior prior to installing them when it's much easier to do so.
  • Post a "no trespassing" or "private property" sign on the gate after installation. This will also curb solicitors who may think it is a second entry to your home.
  • Make sure to have your gate installed so that it will swing open for you on either side that you happen to stand. Consider gates with locking mechanisms on either side, similar to a door.

Also, important to remember is the main purpose for installing your gate: is it for privacy and security? Your pool or pets? Consider the following suggestions:

Privacy. A gate will provide further camouflage for your property, which can also increase privacy.

Pools. Make sure that you install a sturdy fence with a gate to enter your pool area. This will provide security and help keep others out of your pool when you are not home.

Pets. If you use a fence to contain pets on your property, be sure that you install a gate to make it easy to come and go when you let them outside.

A fenced in area without a gate is like a meal without dessert—it seems incomplete. Consult with a contractor like Morris Fence Co or home improvement retailer to find the most practical gate to secure your property and that will work with your current fencing.
