  1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this topic. I agree with your conclusions, having spent a bit of time considering fences for my property, too. In the end, I decided that not only would a fence or gate not provide much in the way of security, it might actually be attractive to criminals. Homes with big fancy gates look like rich people’s homes and thus targeted for looting and theft. Security through obscurity might often be a better choice.

  2. Here is what a fence CAN do for you. It absolutely defines your property and is aphysical barrier that isn’t crossed by accident or without thought. Therefore if someone climbs your fence and is walking towards your home there islittle doubt that they mean you harm. With no fence they could be trying to sell you magazines or give you a bible. Secondly it keeps your dog inside the fence and defines to an intruder where the dog is a danger to them. And lastly if someone comes onto your property and you turn loose the dogs it gives the dogs a decent chance at the intruder :>)

  3. I really like the idea of getting a fence to keep my dog in the yard. It would be nice to be able to let him outside to run around all day. I didn’t realize that fences can sometimes improve property value. That’s definitely good to know, seeing as I probably won’t be living in this house forever. I’ll want to sell it eventually, so increasing the value is a good idea.
