FENCE AND GATE HARDWARE
There is something deeply satisfying about a fence.
Whether we’re talking about a simple, rough-hewn structure around your property or an intricately designed barrier for a pool and patio, a fence adds quality to your personal spaces. A perimeter fence is an attractive way to separate your property from the neighbors and to more fully personalize the land around your home. If there are children next door, a solid fence can help keep baseballs from rolling into your flower beds, and it can discourage passers-by from taking an occasional shortcut across a carefully clipped lawn.
Fences are also great for those who value privacy. Cozy spaces can be fashioned for reading and relaxing that are totally sheltered from the outside world, or you can section off larger areas—even an entire yard—to form an area that is personal and protected. Fences also define areas for specialized use, such as a pool and patio, a dog run, or an area for a private garden, while smaller sections of fences can be employed as an integral part of the property’s overall landscaping design. For the security-minded, a solid surrounding structure serves as a psychological, as well as a physical, deterrent to intruders.
Depending on where your home is located, noise and traffic from an adjacent road can be bothersome, or prevailing winds and harsh sun light may interfere with your enjoy ment of the outdoors. By softening sounds and providing a barrier to wind and sun, a fence can extend the time you spend outdoors and increase the pleasure of outdoor living. In addition, by reshaping the exterior spaces, a fence will con-tribute to your home’s overall ambiance, appearance and value.
