fencing to protect your property from ticks

Each year, tick awareness is increased. With the spread of Lymes disease and the increasing number of other diseases that these little insects spread, people are doing more to put a stop to the ticks from invading their outdoor living areas. If you have deer that are constantly passing through your property, you could have an increased number of ticks infesting your lawn. This was an issue that I was having. After having a fence installed to keep the deer out of my yard, I have seen far fewer ticks and have not picked one off of myself or my kids.

Turning Your Chain Link Fence Into A Privacy Fence

If you have a chain link fence, you may be considering having a different one installed that offers you more privacy. You don't necessarily need to go this route. There are some changes you can make to your chain link fence so it also acts as a privacy fence and blocks out a clear view of your home from outside your property.

Install fence slats in the fence

Installing slats in the chain link fence will provide you with privacy and it will give the fence a nicer look. You can purchase slats in a variety of materials such as aluminum, wood and more. You can also find them in a wide range of colors and styles. If you want your fence to look more like a hedge than a fence, you can even find slats that are designed to look like a hedge. The slats slide into place and lock to the fence in different ways, depending on the type you go with.

Attach rolled wood fencing to the fence

If you would like to make it less obvious that you have a chain link fence installed around your yard then you may want to consider installing rolled wood fencing. This can be purchased in many different types including bamboo, stick, willow, twig and fern. To attach the rolled wood fencing, you will roll it over the front of the chain link fence and use ties or wire to secure it in place.

Grow foliage on the fence

You can find foliage that will grow up your chain link fence. Ivy is an easy type of foliage you can use to cover your chain link fence. Ivy is very easy to train to grow up the fence. You want to plant the ivy at the base of the fence and wrap the vines through the chain link in an upward direction. You can use ties to tie them loosely in place if some of them don't want to stay. Ivy also grows fairly quickly and this means you will have an ivy covered fence without waiting years.

By choosing one of the methods discussed in this article for covering your fence, you can add privacy to your property without the need for replacing your current fence. Also, if you are trying to decide on the right type of fencing to have installed, consider how flexible chain link is to work with. Talk to a fencing company, like Albemarle Fence Co Inc, to learn more.
