While it’s true that many homeowners install fences to mark their property lines and enjoy a little privacy from their neighbors, the reality is that there are many other practical uses for fencing. Explore these four other popular uses for fencing on a residential property and consider whether any of these may be useful to you!

1. Around Your Pool

If you have a pool on your property (especially an in-ground one), then you should really have a fence around it for the safety of your loved ones. This is especially important if you have small children in your household or have children who visit regularly.

Without a fence, all it takes is a few moments for a child to make his or her way into a pool unsupervised. A dedicated fence around your pool can provide you with added protection for small children and even pets.

2. Around Your Kids’ Playground

If your children have an outdoor playscape or other toys that they like to play with outdoors, consider putting up a small fence to create a dedicated play space for them. In doing so, you can keep their outdoor messes contained in a designated area on your property. At the same time, fencing in a kids’ play area also keeps your children from wandering into tool sheds or other potentially dangerous areas on your property.

3. Around Your Garden

Maintaining a garden can be a very rewarding experience—but if you have wild animals (such as deer and rabbits) in your area, you might also deal with the frustration of these animals entering your garden and damaging your plants. By installing a fence around your garden, you can keep unwanted pests out, which will make maintaining your garden easier and less time-consuming.

4. Around Your Dog’s Outdoor Space

If you have a dog or multiple dogs living at your house, then you probably know first-hand just how much work it can be to keep your yard free of dog droppings. By fencing off a small portion of your property and training your dogs to recognize this as their space to do their business, you can keep these messes contained. This will make it easier for you to keep the rest of your yard clean.
