How a Low Fence Can Enhance Your Home, Nicholasville, Kentucky

Fencing is a classic way to add instant curb appeal and value to your property. While six-to-eight-feet options are used for privacy and security, two-to-four-feet fences provide a variety of landscaping applications. If you have been brainstorming over how to enhance your property, consider what a low fence can offer.

How to Improve Your Property With a Low Fence

Flower, Vegetable, or Herb Garden

Low fences that are about two feet high provide beautiful borders for any garden. They outline your garden, which is particularly helpful during planting season, while also helping keep out pests, such as rabbits. Classic, white-picket fences are a timeless addition to any yard, though you can also go the rustic wooden route for a wildflower or herb garden.

Designated Play Area

fenceCreating play areas for your children with low fencing prevents toys from being scattered throughout the yard, which is ideal if you always seem to be stepping on or tripping over them. It also makes keeping an eye on the kids easier and provides many creative opportunities depending on the size of the space, such as using one corner as a sandbox or for housing a large, weatherproof outdoor toy bin.

Front Yard Border

A low fence provides the perfect final touch to your front yard. Whether you want to sell your home now or in a few years, fencing is a fantastic way to grab the attention of potential buyers and help them discover what your home offers. Low options also helps clearly define property boundaries so your neighbors are not constantly mowing, edging, or clipping where they shouldn’t.

Pool Border

Another idea is a border around a pool. If your backyard is private but you would still like to create a “pool area,” low picket and chain-link fences are among the many options available to you. They keep pool supplies and toys within the space, so you never have to worry about them ending up on the other side of the yard or being carried off by the dog.
