In this world of transparency, where everything is put on display for everyone to see, where Everyman is keeping an eye on everything, we all yearn for a bit of solitude. Now, it need not necessarily be provided by four walls and a roof. A Patio, Backyard, Front Garden, Flower beds are some places where we like to relax more often than in the insides of the house. In these spaces, we may often require seclusion from nosy neighbors, their guests barring their pets from ruining your flower bed. A barricade defining our property from the neighbors is necessary. A fence is the most obvious and simple solution to these problems. Fencing can be categorized into three categories, i.e. Privacy, Functional and decorative. They create stunning garden boundaries bound to impress neighbors, family, and friends.
Most Common fences are metal Chain-Link fence, Picket fence, wrought-iron fence, bamboo fence, etc.. Privacy fences are made from multiple types of materials, but the most popular types are vinyl or wood, metal. The material used to build the fence will determine any spacing that might crop up between slats, determining just how “private” the fence is. A stone-shade-tarp privacy fence or wooden fence would be more of a permanent and solid solution which requires comparatively more investment and upkeep from time to time. Similarly, any kind of metal fencing would be expensive as well as would require sanding and repainting every 3 years.
The more easy, and the user-friendly solution would be putting up vinyl Fences along the periphery. There is no expansion and Contraction effect of weather on it, it’s eco-friendly. Providing a sense of privacy to the owners, it’s also an aesthetically viable option. A green-screen can be eventually developed with Climbing plants and cascading ground covers over it, enhancing the beauty of the Out-door spaces. Such exterior vertical gardens also give buildings great protection and insulation from temperature fluctuations, UV radiation, and heavy rain. In the summer, exterior vertical gardens use a process called evapo-transpiration, which helps cool the air around it.
These Constructive fences can be used to isolate as well as embellish various spaces from a single open space, i.e. the Swimming Pool; deck area can be separated from the Open Lawn area where one is entertaining some guests. Protecting the flowerbeds and shrubbery from critters; who tend to destroy the saplings itself. Typically these fences are 4 feet to 6 feet high as per the choice and requirement of the owner and the neighbors.
As it is rightly said “Good Fences make good Neighbours” – Robert Frost
“The Fence and the boundary line are the symbols of the spirit of Justice. They set the limits upon each Man’s interest to prevent one from taking advantage of the other.”- Reinhold Neibhuhr
