Making Your Front and Backyards Work Together

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

Most homes have a fence or some kind of gate that prevents the front and back garden from joining up. This is because the designers of modern homes want to give homeowners as much privacy in their back gardens as they possibly can. What ends up happening is, they go too far. They essentially cut off the front of your home. That’s why if you’re having a barbecue, you’ll show guests in through your home and out onto the back garden. Or you might have to say ‘go around the back’ and then let them in after opening the locked gate. On the one hand, it's annoying, and on the other, you find that it might be better for your safety too. If you have a fence surrounding the rear of your home, then it's going to be tougher for any criminal to get to your back door right? But who said the fence has to disappear?

 

Elongating and Continuity

Consider elongating your fence so it smoothly transitions to your front gate. This will mean that you create a fence all the way down the side of your home. However, this might mean having to uproot and throw away your current fence that splits the home. In fact, you may only have a metal fence toward the front of the home as so many common homes do. You’ll need to note the style of your fence in the back garden and then call up a contractor to make them elongate the fence for you. For that, you’ll Need A General Contractor that knows their way around such a job that involves excavating an old fence and fitting a new one in its place. Make sure they are insured. Make sure they are ready to bid for the job. Get all the verbal agreements in writing. Once they are happy with your requests then you can start deciding materials.
