Privacy Fence Solutions

by Lynn Ganster, PA 05/20/2019

Privacy fencing is a great way to increase your home value while improving the quality of life you live in your home at the same time. There are many solutions for you to consider. Think about your aesthetic preferences, whether or not you’re trying to block noise in addition to controlling your view and what works best with the contouring of your yard. Think about the flow between your backyard and front yard and how your home blends with the street as a whole. We all want to enjoy our neighbors, but we need to protect our home space as well.

Horizontal or Vertical Boards — Does a classic vertically installed fence fit best with your yard or do you like the modern aesthetic of horizontal boards? With either selection, you can install a fence with tight boards that completely block out the view or try peekaboo fencing for privacy that allows more light into your yard. Consider natural cedar, pine or a composite. Select a prefab white fencing option to minimize repainting or a natural wood that self-protects from environmental wear for minimal ongoing maintenance. 

Trellis and Vines — Trellis is a very affordable fencing option. To create more seclusion with your privacy fence train a vine to grow up and through the lattice. Though annual vines will grow fast and create coverage quickly, you won't have coverage year-round. Perennial vines will take longer to establish but will give your yard excellent coverage all year. You can select from flowering vines like Morning Glory (annual), Trumpet (perennial), Wisteria (perennial) or Climbing Hydrangea (perennial). Evergreen plants are probably the best solution for full and consistent coverage. Try an English ivy or creeping fig for your evergreen selection.

Hedge Wall — For another green solution consider growing a hedge wall. There are many easy to care for and fast-growing hedge plants you can contemplate. Boxwood varieties grow upwards of 20 feet tall to maintain and shape with shearing to fit the style of your yard. The American Arborvitae grows thick and tall making it a good option for visual appeal and noise screening. Also, consider a bamboo wall for privacy. No matter where you live, you can acquire a bamboo type that works for your region and soil. Select the right variety, a clumping, non-invasive bamboo for best results and enjoy a beautiful noise canceling and private solution for your yard. 

 Wherever your home is there is a privacy fencing solution for you. Talk with your real estate agent and your local hardware professional about the best options for your neighborhood, yard terrain, and home aesthetic to create a beautiful privacy fence that adds value to your life and home.

About the Author

Lynn Ganster, PA

It all began when I was 18 years old and my soon to be husband and I were searching for our first home. I loved the idea that I could be part of someones life experience but I had a life to live before acting on that idea! I never knew much about the industry, but after seeing the process firsthand of a difficult transaction my husband and I were involved in and how important each part of the ordeal was for both my husband, myself, and the owner, I knew it was something that I wanted to be a part of. Of course, I didn’t pursue real estate until I was finally able to dive in back in 2004, but it’s been a passion for as long as I can remember.

I can sit here and tell you that I have strong negotiating skills, local market knowledge, and so forth – and of course, I do – but one thing I want to share with you, the thing that is the most important tool I can provide you in your home sale or purchase is my passion. I didn’t get into the industry to make money. I got into the industry because I fell in love with it. I fell in love with homes, the character each one had, and the beautiful people I got to help transition from one home to another. I fell in love with hearing people's stories, really getting to know their needs for their futures, and focusing on ensuring that they found a home that actually met those future goals.

Real estate can be a stressful thing, moving out of a home you’ve known for years can be hard, and it can be harder if you don’t have someone to partner with who doesn’t take the time to understand that. My business goes beyond the professionalism I can bring to the table, my years of knowledge about our local market and communities, and past the number of sales I’ve made thus far. Instead, it prioritizes you. How much can you afford? What motivates your move? What do you HAVE to have to make this big transition in your life?

You need a real estate agent who understands that, and seeks to know the answer to those questions, and all of the other important ones that make buying and selling a reality for you. Let’s grab coffee or lunch, on me, and we’ll talk about your real estate goals. I’ll get to know your needs, I’ll share the amazing experience I can provide, and we’ll make sure your next move is in the right direction. You need more than a computer to find your dream home, you need a professional partner who has your best interest at heart from the moment you call to even after we close. I’m doing more than just selling houses in Florida, I’m helping you bring your dream home to life. ~Lynn
