How Fencing Protects Your Property

Your property fence line, whether it's a vinyl fence or a decorative wrought iron fence, protects your property from a vast number of problems. Fencing can be the solution to issues the average property owner may not even consider in the course of choosing a fence to meet his needs. Here are some of the potential problems a fence line can solve.



A fence will stop an intruder, whether it's someone who is lost and doesn't realize they're on private property or someone who is deliberately seeking mischief. A locked gate, of course, is an additional measure.

Potential victims

Once a person is on a property, intentionally or not, their welfare becomes a property owner's responsibility in the event of a mishap. A fence protects the homeowner from liability, for example, the wandering child in search of a way to climb into a glittering pool.

From animals

We often think of a wandering dog or cat when we think of an animal. But, because we live in a desert, we also share space with javelina, coyotes, rabbits, and other fauna which have made the Valley their home. A fence will help prevent them from making themselves at home in your yard.

From property line confusion

A fence can delineate property lines, preventing a host of unpleasant problems if neighboring properties pass through several hands. It will also prevent intended or unintended encroachment of neighbors onto the property.

From debris

Anyone who has ever seen the bottom of a fence after a windy day knows how much trash and debris are prevented from winding up on property grounds. The right type of fencing is especially helpful if the property has a pool, which can become clogged with leaves and other detritus during a storm.

From encroaching vegetation

Vegetation belonging on a neighbors property can also grow and encroach on a property, but a fence will stop it before it comes onto your property. This preempts the need to have a conversation with neighbors whose vegetation may become a problem.

From noise

Some types of fence act as a sound barrier, which helps keep the peace on the property. It also safeguards the neighbors from the noise made on the property which they may not be inclined to hear.

From prying eyes

Privacy is an essential component of a family who spends a lot of time outdoors but doesn't always wish to share the experience with the scrutiny of the neighbors or passersby. This is especially true of properties with a pool.

If you're thinking of putting up a fence, these are some considerations to ponder before choosing the type and height of fencing which will make the most sense for your needs and concerns. If you have questions, we'd be glad to help!
