Fences are an increasingly important landscaping element that can make a dramatic difference to the overall look of a home’s backyard, patio or pool area. As our tastes in the exterior aesthetics of a home become more important, with homeowners seeking to create an outdoor oasis and improve a property’s street appeal, a new fence has become a greater priority. However, maintaining or replacing the boundary fence is often overlooked during winter when outdoor activities are less of a priority – although winter is the perfect time for a new fencing project.
As the cooler weather sees many people retreat indoors, undertaking major backyard projects, like a new fence, will see them completed and ready in time for spring. In addition to making sure the home is looking its best ahead of the outdoor entertaining season, there are also other benefits that a homeowner may not have considered.
Following are two compelling reasons to consider a fencing project in winter:
- Protect the garden while plants are dormant: Many species of trees and shrubs are dormant in winter, making them more resilient to disruptions while positioning the fence. With limited foliage, the fence will also be more visible and accessible for both removal and installation. If protecting backyard landscaping elements is important, replacing the boundary fence during winter makes perfect sense.
- Tradespeople maybe more readily available during the low seasonal period: Fencing contractors can be heavily booked in the peak summer months, particularly in the lead up to Christmas when there is a rush of people looking to get their fence ready before the festive season.
