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.

Affordable Decorating Tips For Your New Fencing

Having a new fence installed is exciting. This new fence gives you something else to decorate for the holidays. The fence that keeps your dog from running into the streets and your children safely in your yard can also provide you with a new way to spread holiday cheer in your neighborhood. Below, you will find a few affordable ideas that can help you decorate your new fence this holiday season.

Snowman Posts

The fence posts are perfect for creating snowmen. To transform the post into snowmen you will need only a few things – tassel caps, poster board, a few markers, buttons, fishing line and scissors.

Make some snowman faces out of the poster board using markers. Once you are pleased with the look, cut the head out of the poster board and laminate it. If you don't have a laminator, you can have the poster board laminated for you at some local office supply stores, or you can buy sheets of self-adhered laminate to cover them yourself.

Now, make some buttons for the front of your snowmen's bellies using the fishing line and buttons. Tie the buttons with the fishing line so that they are a few inches apart. The number of buttons you use will determine how tall your snowmen appear.

Use the fishing line to tie the snowmen pieces to the fence post. If you have vinyl fencing, you can use suction cups to hold it in place.

Put the tassel cap on the top of the post and your snowmen are finished. Run a string of lights across the fence or below the fence to illuminate the snowmen at night.

Peppermint Sticks and Stars

Ribbon can be used to create all sorts of shapes on your fencing. Wrapping vertical posts with red and white ribbon will create the look of peppermint sticks.

Stars are also a staple of Christmas. You can use ribbon of any color to create the stars on your fence.

To attach the ribbon to your fencing, you have a few options. If the fencing is wood, you can use thumbtacks. If the fencing is vinyl, you can use small suction cups.

Pine Garland

What is probably the easiest way to decorate your fencing for the season is to hang pine garland across it and add some lights. A few red ribbons to finish it and you will have the picture perfect home for the holidays.

Think about how you want to decorate your new fence for the holiday season. Have fun with it as you do it and you, your family and everyone who passes will feel a bit of holiday cheer fill their spirits.

If in this process you realize your fence needs some sort of repair, contact local contractors, such as JT Fencing.
