Ideal Fence Height For Your Home


What is the Ideal Fence Height? Is it a taller one or a short one? A high fence is not always better when it comes to fencing. It’s tempting and expensive to dream a higher fence for your property, but the need for a taller fence is not always there. Before you invest in a fence, study these points, and determine for yourself whether to build a high fence or compensate for a short fence.

Safety and Privacy


One of the main reasons to build taller fences is to prevent criminal activity. Offenders typically operate in neighborhoods where the risk of exposure is low. So investing in a higher fence can help to keep unwelcome eyes and people from your home at your convenience.


It does not mean if you have a taller fence, you will neglect the safety precautions. Being a safety-conscious does not end with a more dependable deterrent.

Wildlife Concern


It can keep out the small wildlife animals in Oklahoma like prairie dogs, skunks, and copperheads from your yard with a taller fence. It prevents bobcats and other large animals from entering the backyard or garden space. Maybe the doe(deer) can only jump so high, and other large animals are not usually good at digging large objects to get inside.


Gardens are generally vulnerable, and a taller fence can help give that much needed “the first line of defense” that will retain your garden blooming and animal-free.

Kids and Adorable Pets


If you have a dog or pet that can jump and can skip out of the fence or a curious kid that likes climbing fences. Sometimes building a taller fence is required to keep something, and if you believe anything important or loved may leave out your yard with a shorter fence. Definitely, it’s a good idea to build a higher fence.

What is most important is to remember, “never build a taller fence just to build taller.” Do your best to evaluate your necessities and wants and come to inform any decision to build a taller fence.
