Fantastic Front Yard Fence Ideas

front yard fence

The American Dream: a house, a family, and a front yard fence.

When we talk about residential fences on this blog, we often assume we’re enclosing a backyard, whether it’s for pool safety, keeping your dogs contained, or simply enjoying some privacy. Anyway, whatever the reason, backyards are certainly not the only place for one of our fences. A front yard fence has plenty of applications, both functional and aesthetic. Let’s explore, shall we?

Functional Front Yard Fence Ideas

This is kind of a trick subheader. Any job that can be accomplished by a fence immediately turns that fence into a functional one. But if you don’t have a problem in mind that can be solved by a fence, here are a few common uses.


  • Security: In most cases, a front yard fence won’t be a foolproof barrier to potential unwanted visitors. However, it can give a visual inkling of security, perhaps implying that the fence is just one of many security measures you’ve taken. If you go a little bit higher-end, an automated driveway gate goes even further in the name of security.
  • Perimeter: This one carries over from backyard fences. Just like you might want to keep dogs and kids inside the perimeter of your backyard, that same logic applies in the front. Additionally, depending on the layout of your street/neighborhood, a fence can be crucial in defining property lines.
  • Aesthetics: Hey, choosing to brighten up your curb appeal and add a little extra charm is a function, right? It’s been shown that houses with (well-maintained) front yard fences fetch better resale value than their fenceless counterparts. Even if you aren’t planning on selling, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to add the classic charm of a white picket fence (wood or vinyl), the ornateness of ornamental metal, or a quaint gated fence. Additionally, many of our fencing options are totally customizable, allowing you to give your home and your front yard fence whatever look you want.
