Keep Your Fence Safe From Storm Damage

Follow these tips to protect your fence from storm damage.

One of the most important elements of any landscape is the fencing that surrounds it.  Specific types of fencing can provide a home with safety and security, as well as, aesthetic value.  However, you want to make sure that your residential fencing can stand up well to all of the elements, especially since the Baltimore area has been hit with excessive rainfall lately.  Luckily, there are few simple tips to protecting your home fencing from storms and high-speed winds.

Trim Branches

One of the most effective ways to protect your fencing storms is to trim any overhanging or dead branches.  Home fencing is at risk of tree branches falling on them and causing serious damage, especially if it is a wooden fence.  So, it is essential that you are trimming any branches that are hanging over your fence. If the branches are coming from your neighbor’s tree, ask them if you can trim the branches so that your fence is not at risk.  The last thing you want is for your fence to be destroyed during a hurricane or thunderstorm.

Inspect Your Fencing

When it comes to protecting your fence, you want to check and inspect your fence throughout the year especially before hurricane season.  You want to check for any loose or rotted posts, and replace them immediately. You do not want posts flying off your fence and damaging your home during a rainstorm leaving you with costly damages.

Clear Your Lawn

If you want to protect your fencing from storm damage, you need to clear your lawn of any heavy object before a storm hits.  Make sure you are taking any patio furniture or any other large object inside or into your garage. You want to take any objects around your garden and take them inside to prevent them from flying into your fencing.
