If you don't already have a fence around your property, then a point in time may come where it is something that you should have done. Here are some things that may change in and around your home and if they do, then it may be a good idea for you to go ahead and finally have a fence built.
You are going to be getting a puppy/dog
If you are going to be bringing home a dog, then you really should have a fence built. Without a fence, you are going to have a very hard time when it comes to letting your dog out to relieve themselves. You may find yourself needing to get up in the wee hours of the morning and late at night to take the dog out when it has to go.
Also, you will need to make sure your dog is getting enough exercise, and if you can't just let it outside in the yard to run, then this may mean a lot of time spent at the local dog park. Once you have a fence, you can just open the door and let your dog out, or you can even have a doggy door installed, so they can go outside when they want. You won't have to worry as much about the dog getting lost or even about loose dogs getting in the yard and fighting your dog.
You are planning to have a baby
If you don't have a fence and you are planning on having a baby in the near future, then you'll want to think about adding the installation of a fence to the list of baby prep to-dos that you have ahead of you. While you always want to supervise small children, it is a good idea to have a fence around the yard as an extra barrier between your home and the rest of the world. So, if they were to get out of the house, you have the fence to help prevent them from wandering off. Also, when you have your child in the yard playing, you can contain them easier, so you don't have to worry about them escaping the yard the minute you look the other way for a second.
Your neighborhood is filling up with more homes
If you didn't have many neighbors around your house when you first moved in, but a lot of building has taken place since then and you now have a lot more houses around you, then it may be time for a fence. A fence will help you to establish the boundaries of your property, so you don't have strangers just walking through your yard getting close to your house at all times of the day and night, picking the fruit off your fruit trees, and trampling your grass. It can also provide you with more privacy so people can't see right into your yard when you are out there. Plus, it can add an extra layer of security to your home.
