How to Choose the Right Fence Height for Your Property

The right fence height will determine how secure and comfortable your property will be. In addition, it can provide a sense of privacy, especially with neighbors facing each other. You can choose from various fence heights to suit your needs. According to Hunker, local regulations play a role in fencing height levels. Standard privacy fences are available in 6-foot and 8-foot sizes, but the code requirements can differ because of material height and their height off the ground. Chain link fences are popular because of their ease of installation and availability in different sizes and thicknesses. Here’s how to choose the right height for your property:

Appraise the Existing Fence

Look at the existing fencing around your property to determine where it should go and what type of material you want behind it, whether that be wood, vinyl, or a chain link fence. While doing this, consider if you want to add another tier on top of the existing fencing materials to achieve a higher level of privacy or security on that section of your property.

Consider the Available Styles

Check out the various style of chain link fencing options available and choose one that best complements. The chain link fencing system comes in different styles and sizes. For example, there’s the standard 6-foot-tall chain link fence which is ideal for use around your garden or yard, or you can choose something taller like an 8-foot chain link fence if you want something more substantial around your property.

Take Your Landscape Into Account

The main thing to remember when choosing the right fence height for your property is that you need to find something that works with the rest of your landscaping and doesn’t clash with anything else in the yard. For example, if you don’t want to obstruct trees or shrubs on one side of your house, you should probably go with something shorter.

Consider Your Surroundings

The look and feel of your yard will vary depending on where you live and the local laws affecting fences in your area. For example, some cities have zoning regulations prohibiting fences higher than four feet, while others allow them as long as they meet specific height requirements.

Fences are essential to your property’s exterior design and can help make your home more attractive. Consider calling us for more information and advice on choosing the best fencing solution for your property.
