For kids, every inch of your backyard is their domain. It’s the place where imagination comes to life and memories are created. What better way to protect their imaginations than by installing a fence? Fences can provide privacy, peace of mind, and help keep your kids safe while they explore and play. Let’s take a look at the best fence styles for a family with kids—
1. A Wooden Privacy Fence
There are numerous benefits to adding a wooden privacy fence. Often six feet high, wooden fences are perfect for keeping your kids safe and shielding your yard from neighbors, other animals, and intruders. In addition to protection, wooden fences can be appealing to future homebuyers with kids and add to the overall value to your home.
2. Vinyl Privacy Fence
Do you have adventurous children? Vinyl fencing might be the best option for you! Vinyl fences are a great choice because they have no sharp edges. Plus, a vinyl fence will deter climbing as the material can be a bit slippery. Vinyl is a very durable, low maintenance material and can even be made to mimic high-end wooden panels, so you get both ease and style— making it an ideal choice for families with kids!
3. Chain Link
Chain link fences are a practical choice if you are needing a secure, but low maintenance fence. This budget friendly option is durable and good for certain breeds of animals who can be kept in by a chain link fence. However, if you desire privacy, you can add slats in your choice of color!
4. A Pool Fence
Having a pool in your backyard adds a ton of fun to your own personal backyard oasis. However, with children around, a pool can pose a huge safety hazard. Statistics show that drowning is the second leading cause of death for children under five in the United States. That said, installing a fence around your pool will give you peace of mind as your kids run and play in your backyard. Not sure where to start with selecting the perfect pool fence? Try vinyl, aluminum, or baby lock fencing! Vinyl fences can be resistant to mold, rot, and fading from the sun, while aluminum pool fencing offers functionality, elegance, and the luxury of little-to-no maintenance, making them both great choices for pool fencing. Baby lock goes right at the perimeter of the pool (as opposed to the perimeter of the yard) making it an excellent choice if you have young children who do not know how to swim yet.
Children love to explore and by adding a fence to your backyard, you can give them the freedom they desire plus added privacy and protection YOU desire.
