A privacy fence for your deck gives you exactly what you expect – and more. First off, as the name suggests, a privacy deck gives you privacy. If your home doesn’t have much space between the neighbors, you might want a little privacy in your yard from time to time. We’ve installed more than a few privacy fences on the custom decks we build in Omaha. You have a lot of options, and there are more benefits than you may realize. Let’s take a closer look at what a privacy fence can do for your custom deck.
As we mentioned, and as you probably figured out already, the first benefit of a privacy fence is privacy. When outdoors relaxing on your custom deck, it might be hard to fully relax if you feel like all the neighbors are watching you. If the home is your castle, your deck is an extension, and having a little privacy should be a part of it. You don’t have to barricade yourself in and obstruct views, but a privacy fence can obstruct unwanted views while maintaining the ones you want.
A second benefit to a privacy fence on your deck is that it acts as a windscreen. Nebraska gets windy, as you know. When the wind kicks up, whatever is on your deck moves or flies away. And the wind keeps you from enjoying your deck. A good privacy fence for your deck will act as a windscreen securing items, furniture, and allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space no matter what the wind is doing.
Do you have a furry friend you’d like to keep on the deck and off the grass? Or maybe you want to keep the wild furry creatures off your deck? A privacy fence added to your deck can keep unwanted wildlife from inviting themselves onto your deck, or keep your loved animals on the deck. It’s a win-win!
Do you have little ones that you worry might fall off the edge of your deck? A privacy fence for your deck keeps young children safe and away from deck edges. You can add a gate to your privacy fence, allowing access to the yard. When you have a privacy fence on your deck, you can rest assured, letting little ones play outside on the deck.
A privacy fence added to your deck can also create more functionality. You can hang plants on them to add some life to your deck. You can mount a discreet tool rack for your BBQ tools and deck broom. You can also string outdoor lights for added décor.
