Ah yes, the classic privacy fence. Typically when people think about a privacy fence they think about only one thing, privacy. What if we were to say that a wooden fence is much more than that? Yup, there are many hidden benefits that you may have never thought about before. Let’s take a look at what they are.
Peace of mind
We’ll start with the most obvious, peace of mind. Maybe you have children. Having a privacy fence helps give an extra sense of security as they play in the backyard. Or maybe your neighbor’s dog has a habit of coming and going as they please. You know, just to stay up to date with your landscaping. A privacy fence can help with both.
What’s that noise?
Do you live backed up against a busy street or highway? Are you constantly trying to drown out the sound of the lawnmower or the pool party across the street? A wood privacy fence helps tone down some of that noise, creating a more peaceful backyard for you to enjoy. So sit back and grab some freshly squeezed lemonade while you finish up that book you started a couple of months ago!
Have plans to upsize, or downsize your living situation at some point? In some cases having a privacy fence can help seal the deal and get your house sold a little faster. Plus it helps increase the overall value. Think about it, if you had kids or pets wouldn’t the house with a brand new wood privacy fence be a little more appealing? We’re pretty sure we know what your answer is.
Protection from the elements
A 6ft privacy fence can help you brave the elements….well sort of. The extra height does help cut down on wind exposure. This is great for especially breezy days and can be even more helpful when it comes to heavy wind. Why? Because it helps block your plants and shrubs from possible damage. Less damage means less time redoing your landscaping!
Strong as steel
Finally, did you know that you can make your wood privacy fence as strong as steel? That’s right, products like PostMaster’s steel fence post give your fence the strength of steel while keeping the look of wood. And by strength we mean the ability to withstand 70 mph winds. That fence isn’t going anywhere!
