The fence in your yard might be a deliberate choice, or it might have been an afterthought. Have you ever thought what it says to those who see it? Memories play a big role in how you perceive things, so the fence you remember from your childhood home or grandmother’s house might make a difference when you look at another person’s house.
If you remember the white picket fence around your house when you were seven, seeing one like it will likely remind you of summertime, sunshine, and playing in your yard. If you remember the detailed ornamental fence around your best friend’s house, memories of hanging out and late nights might come to mind.
These things have an impact on how people perceive your house. If your fence is looking worn down and old, it might leave an impression of neglect. Take a close look at your fence—what does it say to you?
If you decide your fence needs to make a new impression, start by looking at the fences around your neighborhood. Which ones do you like? Which ones make the house look inviting, friendly, or safe?
Once you find one you like, get a second opinion (and maybe a third), then find the best quality fence you can. In some cases, you might even want one custom-built. Since a fence is an investment that will last for some time to come, it’s wise to get exactly the one you want.
Whatever you decide, it’s important that you like it—when you’re happy with the way your house looks, you will take pride in it, and anyone who comes to visit will feel welcome!
