Winter is a Perfect Time to Plan Your New Atlanta Fencing Project

Winter isn’t the best time of year to spend leisure hours outdoors, but it is a perfect time to spend planning a new Atlanta fencing project that will benefit you next year.

Since plants and lawns are dormant during winter this is a good time for building projects, including fencing, which requires reasonably deep footings for posts and poles. Whether you plan to install your own fencing or hire a professional company to do it for you, there will inevitably be some disruption (if not damage) to plant life. This can be minimized by doing the work during or at the end of winter before plants and lawns begin to sprout new growth in spring.

Why we recommend winter for a new Atlanta fencing project

Perhaps you’re planning to re-landscape your yard or add a pool or garden structure. If so, winter is the perfect time to plan this, incorporating fencing at the same time. You may not want to do or have the work done during winter, but it’s a good idea to get it finished early spring before you want to spend more time outdoors. Fences can be planned to provide a perfect backdrop for plants, be they shrubs, bushes or flowers. Some designs are ideal for supporting climbers and creepers. This is another good reason to plan your fencing project during winter and get it built before the growing season gets going.

One of the key elements of successful fencing projects is a realistic timeline that won’t inconvenience you. If you’re planning to use the services of a professional fence contractor, you need to work with the company to ensure that the job is streamlined.
