Monday, November 10th, 2014

Residential FenceWhen it comes to maintaining your home, there are plenty of choices homeowners are faced to make. There are choices to be made about safety, privacy, and curb appeal at any given moment. When it comes to the exterior of a home, the option of a residential fence is one that most homeowners are faced to consider.

A residential fence comes with many benefits that some homeowners may fail to realize. These benefits include:

  • Curb Appeal- A residential fence will add to your home’s overall curb appeal. A fence will make your home appear more welcoming while also show that you care about the state of your house. While also increasing your curb appeal, a residential fence will also increase the overall value of your home as well.

This also helps to keep pets, like dogs, inside the yard as they play outside. A residential fence will also deter strangers and intruders from entering your property. A fence will also help to deter criminal activity as well.
  • Privacy- A residential fence will help keep your yard and home private from those passing by your home. Families are able to enjoy time spent outdoors without the worry of strangers seeing them.

How to hold a big Thanksgiving feast in your backyard

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Thanksgiving custom fence

Thanksgiving break is just around the corner. If you want to hold a traditional Thanksgiving at home but don’t have enough space indoors, then you can have a big feast outside, in your backyard.

To throw a successful Thanksgiving dinner in your backyard, you need to transform your yard to an incredible outdoor bash. You can start by using outdoor furniture or placing your interior furniture outdoors to set up your dinner table. The best seating for Thanksgiving are benches, folding chairs, and stools for the outdoors.

For dishware, do not use disposable utensils. You will want durable dishware for your big Thanksgiving feast. We recommend setting up a buffet table on your deck or screened porch to provide easy access to your Thanksgiving guests. If you are concerned about covering your food, you can always use umbrellas to shield your food items.

It’s beneficial to host a Thanksgiving Dinner in your backyard when you expect to have a medium to large Thanksgiving dinner. You should always separate cooking from the dining area. The backyard will give you plenty of room to do both.

Remember the Thanksgiving holiday is about relaxing and enjoying the company of your family and friends. Having your Thanksgiving feast in your backyard will give you the opportunity to BBQ for your family and have a fun dinner outdoors.

Your guests will be happy that they can converse with more tan just the two people next to them because the backyard will provide plenty of space for socializing.

As for having privacy, you can establish that with a custom fence built by Hercules Fence.

The Benefits of Trellis Systems

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

trellis fence

Do you want to enhance your curb appeal just in time for the holidays? You can do it quick and easy with a trellis fence and overall trellis systems for residential properties.

What are trellis fences?

Trellises are fences commonly featured in gardens. The trellis systems are beautiful architectural structures which can be positioned virtually anywhere in your front or backyard. The trellis fences are predominately composed of lattice and combined by frame and posts. Hercules Fence can design your custom trellis fence or other trellis systems using wood, vinyl or metal material.

Trellis fencing comes with so many benefits beyond aesthetic appeal. The trellis fence is highly functional, durable and it has the strength to support a variety of plants and flowers on it, such as roses and honeysuckle plants. Trellis systems can also be used to designate particular parts of your property while providing an extra layer of privacy.

Hercules Fence can create weather resistant trellis systems for your property as well as anti-rust / anti-corrosion features.

What types of trellis systems are available for residential projects? The answer is three main types – high head systems, single curtain systems and double curtain systems.

The high head systems are great for growing fruits for those that appreciate simple trellis systems. The single curtain systems are cost effective and good for trailing growth when it comes to harvesting and pruning. The double curtain systems are perfect for plants that need plenty of sun exposure.

You can count on Hercules Fence to create a beautiful trellis system or trellis fence for your home property. We have been designing quality residential fences and other home improvement projects since 1955. See what our customers think about our services on our testimonials. We specialize in designing and installing residential fencing, commercial fencing and high security fencing.

Take a look at our signature residential projects to find out what we can do for you. Here is a trellis we created for a courtyard. Let us know what you need and we will create a structure you are truly proud to call your own.

How to reap the benefits from a good Privacy Fence and proper Lawn care

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Do you want more privacy for your home and better lawn grass?

Hercules Fence can help you address your homeowner concerns.

With a privacy fence (such as a wood fence), you can have all the privacy you want but you must maintain proper care for the best fence functionality and beautification of your home.

A wood fence that’s not properly maintained will rot. Pressure treated wood is the best type of wood material to use for backyard fences. You will have no worry about insects eating your fence away or your privacy fence suffering from water damage.

Not to mention the fence being repellent to insects and moisture can help you create a marvelous garden right in the comfort of your backyard. Your backyard could become your new sanctuary.

Within your garden you can tie your hammock up to trees or posters for a wonderful nap.

Here at Hercules Fence we pay attention to architectural detail to design the perfect fence for your landscape and home security needs. Our custom wood fences are durable, pressure treated ACQ lumber or you can choose to have your custom wood remain untreated cedar. Have a look at our gallery now.

Additionally, here are some lawn care tips to help you beautify your home today:

  • Water your lawn in the morning to prevent water from settling too long in the soil while hydrating your lawn adequately. You should water your lawn at least 2 times a week.
  • Mow tall to prevent lawn damage such as damage grass blades and fungus development.
  • Don’t mow the grass when it is wet. Wet grass spreads fungal spores quickly.

For a privacy fence installation, contact Hercules Fence by calling (800) TU FENCE or click here today!
