by April 15th, 2021

Are you looking for ways to increase the privacy of your backyard? Do you want to turn your property into a private oasis for you and your family to enjoy? If so, then you need to learn about some amazing fence ideas to help give you more privacy.

Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to sacrifice aesthetics for privacy.

See below for an in-depth guide on the top fence ideas that we recommend you install on your property if you're looking for more privacy.

1. Wood Privacy Fence

When most people think about home fencing, their mind usually defaults to either wood fencing or the next one on this list, vinyl. For good reason! 

Wood fencing is the savvy vet of the fencing industry. It offers you the chance to put each panel of wood side by side to completely block out anyone that would be tempted to peek into your yard. 

There's also room for a lot of customization by choosing from the different types of wood, such as:

  • Cedar-- The top choice among most homeowners. Cedarwood is durable, beautiful, and offers a unique red tint to the wood that people go nuts for. It blends in perfectly with the lush tropical green around the rest of your Fort Myers home.
  • Pine-- Durable and cost-efficient. Pinewood is readily available and can be conformed to almost any fence design that you wish. Its lower cost makes it possible for you to create your dream fence while staying within your budget.
  • Redwood-- Strongly resists insects, something that all homeowners can get on board within South Florida. Durable and offers a really cool aesthetic.

2. Vinyl Privacy Fence

Next on this list, we have vinyl privacy fencing, which is quickly becoming the most popular type of fencing in all of South Florida. 

Residents in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and the like are falling in love with white vinyl fencing specifically. It offers the perfect complement to the southern beach vibe and perfectly displays the tropical paradise aesthetic that most Floridians are looking for.

But vinyl fencing isn't just another pretty face! It offers tremendous durability and a lengthened lifespan, built to withstand winds up to 110mph and has a longer lifespan than wood fencing.

The fencing is available in many different heights so that you can enjoy as much or as little privacy as you wish. However, the style of your fence may dictate how high we're able to build it; be sure to ask us in more detail, if interested.

Vinyl fence manufacturers have learned over the last few decades how to make products that hold their beauty.

Installing vinyl fencing around your land will instantly increase its curb appeal. Your home will appear younger, and keep that fresh look for the next several decades to come.

Perhaps the best part about vinyl fencing is its limited maintenance. All it needs is a thorough power wash once or twice a year to keep its shine.

Maybe you're the type of person that wants to establish firm boundaries around your property but aren't wanting to block the site from your beautiful yard.

That goes both ways, after all. If you block anyone from being able to see into your yard, then you also block your ability to see outside of your yard.

Granted, there are ways around that, such as strategically designed wood fencing panels, which we can help with!

If you're wanting to build a fence for the sake of keeping your little ones inside or ensuring that strangers can't walk straight through your property, then a chainlink fence is a tremendous option. You can even choose from one of three color options:

  1. Galvanized
  2. Black
  3. Green

They are available in heights of 4-feet, 5-feet, or 6-feet to ensure that you have the ability to prevent anyone from climbing over. These also make a tremendous fence around commercial properties to protect your equipment and property overnight.

The chainlink fence is the perfect blend of enhanced privacy and security but allows you to maintain an open yard feel. That way, your property feels less confined.

4. Aluminum Fence

Again, some of you might not be interested in completely blocking your view of the neighborhood around you. You want your new fence to offer a bit more security, but nothing over-the-top.

If so, then you should consider investing in an aluminum fence. We offer aluminum fencing in 2-rail, 3-rail, and puppy picket fence options. 

You can install aluminum fencing around your yard or a specific area, such as your swimming pool. Aluminum is one of the most cost-efficient options out there, since it will not rot, rust, or have paint that chips off.

The black aluminum fencing is especially popular right now, as it gives a modern aesthetic and makes it harder to see into your yard.
