You don’t have to wait for warmer weather to arrive to have a fence installed! Unless the ground is frozen solid several inches below the surface, fences can be installed in winter. As a matter of fact, there are several benefits to installing a fence during the winter months.
Faster Start Date and Project Duration
Springtime inspires many homeowners to improve their outdoor spaces, including adding fences. This rush means if you want a fence installed in the spring you’ll likely have to wait a while for your fencing company to schedule your project. Winter wait lists are often shorter and project completions are often faster due to crews not being split between multiple ongoing projects.
Less Landscaping Worries
Installing a fence in the winter is much better for your landscaping. Since most trees, shrubs, and plants go dormant in the colder months, they can be trimmed back or even relocated without causing long-term damage. Dormant grass also means your yard won’t be affected as dramatically by equipment and workers.
Cold Weather Seclusion
Unless you are surrounded by evergreens, the trees and shrubs you use to increase your privacy in spring and summer thin out when temperatures start to drop, causing your backyard to look a little bare in winter. A privacy fence can protect you from feeling exposed during the colder months.
Won’t Interfere with Outdoor Activities
Once warm weather arrives, you and your family will want to enjoy your outdoor spaces. Installing a fence during this time will restrict the use of your yard, whereas installing a fence in winter won’t interfere with your outdoor plans.
Possibly the biggest benefit of all is that by having your fence installed in the winter you will be able to enjoy your outdoor spaces the first moment spring arrives.
