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.

Don't Overlook The Advantages Of A Cinder Block Wall

If you're thinking about installing a new fence around your home, don't just assume your only options are wood and metal. A cinder block wall is an option you don't want to overlook for a number of different reasons. Here are just some of the benefits building one of these walls around your home can extend.


One of the greatest benefits of constructing a cinder block wall is the fact that it is long-lasting. Concrete is able to inherently void the risk of damage from many elements, such as rain. For this reason, unlike other popular fencing options, including metal and wood, there is no concern about deterioration or corrosion during heavy periods of rain.

Most importantly since this benefit is built-in, there is no need to apply special coatings other treatments to protect the cinder blocks. This doesn't just save you time, but it can also save you money on maintenance costs and installation costs since the wall will last longer.

Energy Efficiency

If you live in a climate where relatively high temperatures are common, a cinder block fencing options can also increase energy efficiency inside your home. Cinder block walls are built as a solid unit, unlike wood or metal fencing options.

If you have a cinder block wall constructed on the side of your home that has the greatest exposure to the sun, this can help minimize the level of heat that is transmitted inside your home, ultimately keeping the temperature inside your home better regulated. Better temperature regulation reduces the frequency at which your comfort system needs to operate, which saves you money on your energy bills.

Design Flexibility

A cinder block wall can also offer you greater flexibility when it comes to your design. Get the idea of dull, gray concrete out of your mind. Concrete cannot only be painted, but it is also available in a variety of different prefabricated colors. Cinder block walls can also be installed in a variety of patterns to add more appeal.

If you want a more textured, or three-dimensional, wall, you could have the cinder blocks installed in a stair-step pattern. You could even get creative and add a landscaping element to the fence by using their hollow insides as a place to plant greenery.  

An installation specialist can assist you with picking both the right type of cinder blocks and design pattern that will best serve the needs of your home. For more information or ideas, get in touch with a professional like those at Harrington & Company.
