Advantages of Installing a Fence in the Fall – Fall is in the air! The kids are back in school and your thoughts turn to pumpkins, apple picking, crisp cooler days, and installing a fence in your yard. Wait…what?
No need to wait for spring or summer when everyone else has the same idea. Chances are you’ll be put on a waiting list. Fall is an ideal time of year to install a fence on your property and here are 6 reasons why:
Save Money –
Since fall and winter are not as busy for fence contractors, chances are your costs will be less than in the busy spring or summer seasons. Discontinued or surplus materials might be marked down and some contractors may offer a discount. It doesn’t hurt to ask when choosing a contractor and scheduling an estimate.
Shorter Building Time –
With fewer jobs lined up, crews will be available to begin building sooner and complete the project more efficiently whereas, in spring, crews will be working on multiple projects. Also, it’s more likely that the materials and features you want will be in stock. Zoning/building permits may be more easily acquired too due to fewer projects being considered towards the end of the year.
More Cooperative Weather –
In many areas, temperatures remain fairly mild well into year’s end. Since contractors are at the mercy of the weather, chances are the cooler, drier days are more favorable for completing the project with fewer delays.
Winter Safety –
Your kids and pets will be able to enjoy winter playtime and fun in the safety of a fenced in yard. Plus, if the weather is bad, you can let your dog out in the yard rather than risk walking on slick sidewalks or roadways. In addition, if you’ve just built or purchased your house and you want to keep kids and pets safe, consider creating a fenced in area on your property now. No need to wait until spring!
Minimum Damage to Landscape –
When grass, shrubs, and plants are dormant less damage will be done to your landscape. Then when spring arrives you’ll be able to dive right into yard work and enhance your fence line with flowers, shrubs, and other garden decorations.
Instead of disrupting your yard in the spring or summer, you and your family will be ready to enjoy the outdoors by planting flowers, playing games, or splashing in the pool because you were smart and built your fence in the fall.
Plus, you’ll be able to decorate your new fence with wreaths or holiday lights this year!
