4 Reasons Why Fall & Winter Are Ideal Times to Install New Fence

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 29 August , 2018

It’s been said that fences make the best neighbors. We don’t know if that’s necessarily true for everyone, but two things we do know are (1) how to install fences and (2) that fall and winter are fantastic times to install a new fence.

In this issue, the San Diego landscaping experts with Juniper Landscape Company will talk more about why fall and winter are the perfect times to make plans for the installation of your new fence.

What is the best time to install a fence?

There are a host of reasons why the cooler months are ideal for installing a new fence.

  1. Reduced chances of harm to your landscaping.
    We’re fortunate to enjoy the San Diego climate, but even here, most trees and other greenery will go dormant in the colder months. This makes damage to your yard and other plant life less likely while your fence is being installed.
  2. New fencing can provide otherwise lost seclusion.
    If your greenery normally doubles as a provider of seclusion, things may be a bit bare during fall and winter. With a new fence, your seclusion and privacy are secured year-round.
  3. Not as many outdoor activities to interrupt.
    Fall and winter are ideal for relaxing indoors. With less time barbecuing and spending time outdoors, there’s little chance of the fence installation interfering with family time.
  4. Less time waiting on your fencing project.
    Since most homeowners do a bit of scrambling in the spring to get new landscaping projects finished, most contractors will be able to complete projects on your schedule during the fall and winter.

What type of fence should I have installed?

There’s plenty of choices for fencing materials. In a recent issue, we talked specifically about the pros and cons of wood and vinyl fencing.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
