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.

4 Installation Improvements That Make Chain Link Fencing More Attractive And Longer Lasting

Chain link fencing is affordable and practical, but often not very attractive. It can also be vulnerable to damage from vegetation or metal corrosion. Doing improvements when you install your new fence, such as using vinyl coated materials and creating buffer zones to control vegetation. Here are some improvements to your chain link fence installation that will make it more attractive and longer lasting:

1. Creating Buffer Zone With Hardscaping To Keep Vegetation Away

The area of your landscaping near your fence should be a buffer zone between landscaping plants and your fence. To create a plant-free zone that is attractive and protects your fence, consider hardscaping features like decorative gravel for ground cover, pavements and retaining walls. If you use plants for privacy in your landscaping, keep this buffer zone to make caring for them easier and protect your fence from the damage they can cause.

2. Using Premium Vinyl Coated Materials To Reduce Wear And Corrosion Problems

The standard chain link fencing material that is used for most fences is a galvanized metal material. The galvanized metal is vulnerable to wear and corrosion. To protect your new fence from this common problem, use premium vinyl coated chain link fencing to improve its appearance and make it more durable.

3. Adjustable Tension Cables For Routine Maintenance To Reduce Wear And Improve Durability

Chain link materials are tensioned to give them strength and prevent wear. To make it easier to maintain your fence and ensure it always has tension; install adjustable tensioners that can be tightened as the fence gets loose over time. Tension systems can also be used on gates to prevent the sagging that is caused by settling over time.

4. Adding Privacy Screens And Fence Coverings To Prevent Damage And Improve Appearance

In addition to durability, you want your new fence to be attractive. Adding privacy screens and coverings is a great way to make chain link fencing more attractive. Doing this will also help to protect the fence from damage that can be caused by debris and vegetation near your fence. The fence covering will give you a barrier between fencing materials and the things that cause damage.

These are some improvements to your chain link fence that will make it more attractive and durable. If you are ready for a new fence, contact a chain link fencing service and talk to them about doing some of these improvements when you have it installed.
