Adding a fence to a backyard is a common option for homeowners wanting to keep pets and children from roaming into neighbors' yards, but fences can provide other benefits for your property as well. One option to consider is a fenced driveway with a gate. If you haven't considered this option, here are a few reasons to think about building one.
Backing out of a driveway can be dangerous if you have little ones running about, and a fenced-in driveway can prevent children from toddling their way behind your vehicle. The fence also keeps pets and other animals away from the driveway where they might otherwise become hurt if a driver does not see them. A fenced-in driveway can also provide a clear path to the garage in the dark, which is an added benefit for homes on large lots that might not be well-lit at night. A fence painted with white reflective paint can provide a safe, clear path to follow when coming home after dark.
Having a stately fence and gate installed around your driveway can create an upscale look for your home when combined with a fence around the rest of the property. The fence on either side of the driveway creates a separation from the landscaping and house, while the gated entrance brings the look of large, luxurious property to even the most humble of homes. For this option, have your fence builder use stone or decorative ironwork to create an elegant design that coordinates with your home's design theme.
Of course, having a gated, fenced-in driveway also offers additional security for your vehicles and property. If you have luxury or classic vehicles stored in your garage and driveway, the fence keeps these vehicles hidden from sight. The gate helps prevent access to the property, which can also help prevent vandals and thieves from being able to access your vehicles. To create a security fence that still matches your home's theme, consider a tall wood privacy fence and coordinating gate. You can also have your fence builder add a security system that allows only you and other authorized family members to open the gate. This system can be operated using a keypad or remote control, or you can use a traditional lock and key.

When we started trying to build our own fence, we realized that we were way out of our league. We had no idea how to go about securing the fence to the ground, and it seemed like no matter what we did, we couldn't get things straight. We realized that in order to protect our investment, we should hire a professional fence contractor. We found an excellent contractor in our area who offered great rates, and they did an amazing job. When our new fence was up, our kids felt safer in our yard and we weren't worried about the fence staying stable. Read this blog to learn more about fencing.
