What to Know Before Fencing In Your Patio


Before you get started, make sure you know everything there is to know about patio fencing styles.

There may be a number of reasons why you’re considering fencing in your patio, but what it comes down to, mainly, is security. Fences, open and closed, provide some degree of security so that you and your family can use your patio comfortably. With the extreme winds the East Coast has experienced lately, it’s no wonder why you might want to protect your patio from any further damage. Before you get started, make sure you know everything there is to know about patio fencing styles.

Keeping It Open

Maybe you and your family live in a place where privacy and protection are not necessarily something you’re looking for in your patio fencing. If that’s the case, consider some open fencing styles. This fencing design is relatively cheaper since less material is being used overall. If you have small pets that you’d like to keep inside your patio area without escaping through an open fence, adding an additional material like welded wire mesh to the fence will keep it open while also keeping your pets in your yard.

Closing It Off

If you’re looking for something that will give you and your family more privacy, a privacy fence can easily be installed around your patio area. Just like with open fencing, you have a lot of choice in the style that you’d like to incorporate into your landscaping. Consider the height and material you’d like for your closed privacy fence, and this will help you determine how much it will cost to install such a fence. Contacting a local fencing expert in your area is a good rule of thumb if you’re unsure of what’s available to you.

Choosing a Gate

Not all patio enclosures require a gate, but it is always convenient to have a way out through the yard if need be. A trusted fencing service can help you decide which type of gate will work best for you and your family.
