One of the joys of home ownership is that it allows the freedom to build new things and start new projects. A privacy fence is a great addition to any home and it can provide security as well as keeping prying eyes out of private spaces. Privacy fencing is a great solution to allowing your small children to play outside without the worry of strangers. They keep large dogs contained and safe from wandering the streets and getting picked up by animal control. A fence can be used as a whole yard solution or as a privacy fence for a small area such as a hot tub or a patio.
A fence can be built to a height that blocks the view of the yard from bystanders and nosy neighbors. It can be stylish and fit the design and color of the home.

Before beginning any project on your property it is best practice to learn about your city’s regulations on building structures. There are usually height limits and building permits to be obtained. Allowable height may vary between the front and back yard of the property.
In order to determine how high of a privacy fence is needed, a simple method can be used. It involves a piece of cardboard cut to the height of the fence desired. A second person can walk the perimeter of the property with the cutout and you can see if the height is going to be enough for your needs. Other design aspects need to be taken into consideration. For a whole yard fence, consider how wide you need a gate to be. What will you need to bring into the yard through the fence? Are there other things around your property that you like to visit? Is there a park behind the house or a neighbor? Think about gate placement in terms of their use. Removable panels are an option for yards that vehicles are driven into.
The design and style of the fence can vary throughout the property. Keep your needs in mind as you go through the planning process. A professional fence builder can aid you in planning and design. Call Platinum Fence & Patio for a free estimate today.
