There are several reasons to install a fence in your yard. Perhaps you have a dog you wish to keep safe from outside threats and prevent from escaping, or maybe you have a pool in your yard and your neighborhood requires that there be a fence around it. You might even think that a fence will improve your home’s curb appeal or help block out that unsightly structure your neighbor has erected. But if your primary reason for creating a fence is so that you can better enjoy your privacy, keep the following factors in mind throughout the fence design and construction process.
The ideal height for your privacy fence depends in large part on what it is you are seeking privacy from. If your main goal is to keep curious gazers at street level from looking into your home, a six-foot fence should do just fine. If you have next door neighbors with second-story windows that overlook your yard, you might have to build a bit higher.
Certain fence materials lend themselves to the provision of privacy better than others. Chain-link fences, for example, contain large diamond-shaped gaps that provide very little privacy. Aluminum, vinyl, and cedar wood may all serve as good privacy fence materials, so long as panels are fitted snugly together.
Mother Nature’s Assistance
A fence is a great means through which you can obtain privacy in your yard. By lining your fence with thick, fast-growing shrubs and planting shade trees in just the right places, you can cover up any privacy gaps that exist in or around your fence. Other landscaping features, such as pergolas and wood panels, may also be used to secure privacy in your yard.

The wind is blowing, it’s cold, and it might even be snowing out. Winter in the Chicago area is not the best time to be outside. It might be, however, be the best time to have a new fence installed. Here are a few reasons why this is the best time of the year to buy a new fence.
Few Yard Improvement Options
As far as sprucing up your property’s exterior is concerned, there are few projects you can carry out in the middle of winter in Chicago. Since many fencing contractors do work year-round, you can take care of your fencing needs now so that you can better focus on other projects when spring and summer roll around.
Fencing companies tend to be less busy in the winter than they are throughout the rest of the year. One effect of this is that the entire fence-building process can be made more efficient for those who embark on it in the winter. Other potential benefits include ease of communication and low-season discounts.
Spare Yourself Some Effort
In order for their appearance and integrity to be preserved year after year, most fences require some maintenance in advance of the winter season. Build your fence during the winter and you can maximize the length of time for which you get to enjoy your fence before winterizing it for the first time.
Enjoy Your Yard Come Spring
Throughout the fence-building process, your yard will look like a light construction site. Opt to construct a new fence during the winter and you will be able to enjoy your new fence and an obstruction-free yard as soon as the weather starts warming up.

There are several reasons why a homeowner may decide to install a fence on his or her property. One of the more common reasons is to make the yard a safe place where pets can play without their owner having to worry that they will escape or otherwise be in harm’s way. For tips on designing a fence that complements your backyard dog-proofing strategy, continue reading below.
Select a Sturdy Material
A fence designed with a dog in mind should be made of a durable material that the dog will not be able to tear down and break through. Aluminum and hardwoods such as cedar are ideal, as long as they are rooted strongly into the ground.
Choose an Appropriate Height
When choosing a fence height, consider your dog’s jumping abilities and those of any predators that live in your area. Build your fence high enough so that your dog is unlikely to escape or be attacked from the outside.
Line Fence with Shrubs
Add an additional measure of protection against escape by lining your fence with dense shrubs that will make digging under or jumping over your fence all that much difficult for your dog or an outside attacker. If digging is a major concern for you, an L-Footer fence is something else you may wish to consider.
Hire a Qualified Fence Specialist
A fencing contractor with experience installing dog-proof fences will root posts deep into the ground and attach panels securely to give your fence the extra fortification you are looking for. Since the installation of a fence is almost as important as the materials, hiring a highly regarded professional to do the job for you is essential.
