Cedar fencing serves as a practical barrier when living in high wind areas, but it can also drive a wedge between you and your neighbor in your desire for privacy. When a fence goes up, tempers can often blow harder than the wind. Read on to find out how a good neighbor fence can help ease the tension – both between people and the elements!
Why Build a Good Neighbor Fence?
Cedar fencing provides you and your neighbor with much-needed privacy, but that’s no reason to stifle a neighborly friendship. A good neighbor fence features alternating cedar fencing boards that look great from either side and provides plenty of privacy too. With a good neighbor fence, you can have your alone time and get along with your neighbor as well. A good neighbor fence will stand as a testament to the bond the both of you share.
Great for High Wind Areas
Normal cedar fencing such as a picture frame fence can sometimes cut off air for plants in high wind areas. The close-set boards of a picture frame fence allow less airflow; however, a good neighbor fence is built with small gaps in between the boards. This not only promotes camaraderie between neighbors, but it lets plenty of wind through that a picture frame fence could not, leading to happier plants and long-lasting stability for the fence.
A good neighbor fence may require more collaboration than other cedar fencing, but it will be well-worth the extra effort.
