Find out why winter is actually a great time to install your new fence!

Installing a fence is commonplace in the warmer seasons, but winter is actually a great time of year to install a fence! As long as the ground beneath the fence isn’t frozen solid, there is plenty of installation work you can knock out before the snow and ice come. Why is winter such a great time of year to install a fence?

Landscaping Is Simple

Taking care of trees and bushes around the area you want to install your fence can be annoying in the warm months when they are lush and larger in size. It’s much easier to deal with in the winter when your landscaping is dead for the season. If you have elaborate landscaping and hardscaping, installing a fence in the winter is a great idea for you.

Privacy Fences Come in Handy

Since landscaping dies down in the winter months, privacy fences are especially important, especially if you still like spending time outdoors during the colder months. If you have an existing fence that is chain link, or that allows no privacy once your landscaping dies down, installing a privacy fence will be a great idea to block out any prying eyes during the cold times.

It’s a Quicker Process

While our installation professionals install fences quickly and easily every season of the year, it’s an especially speedy process during the winter when we are not as busy. You won’t be bumped to the bottom of the list like you would during the spring, when everyone wants to add a fence to your yard. Fence installation in the winter will be much simpler and faster.

Stand Up to Winter

If you have an older fence that is cracking and worn, it might not be able to stand up to the weight of snow and ice, or the whip of the winter wind. Installing a fence before winter weather arrives to replace your old fence can protect your yard and prevent your current fence from turning into a safety hazard.
