The Advantages of Tall Wrought Iron Fences
Tall wrought iron fences can be a handsome and valuable addition to any home. Not only do they make your house and yard more visually appealing, they can serve a number of practical purposes as well, and are a simple but valuable investment into your home.
Upscale homes and stately country manors have been employing wrought iron fences for centuries. The sight of these fences evokes images of well-to-do families from a more genteel era. While some home improvements, like tool sheds, may be functional but create an eyesore, and others may go out of style, a wrought iron fence is a classic look, constructed of weather-proof materials, that will catch the eyes of passersby for decades to come.
If the stentorian iron seems a little stark for you, you can further beautify your fence by planting some climbing vines like clematis along the base of the fence. In a few years' time, you'll have a fence that's also a hedge!
Fences are useful things to have in general, to keep your pets and small children safe inside your yard, or to keep everybody else's pets and small children off of it.Cheap chain-link affairs make your property look gaudy, and may sour relations with your neighbors who come to feel like you're trying to wall them out. Tall wrought iron fences help avoid all of that unpleasantness. Your neighbors will thank you for beautifying the neighborhood, and the sturdy wrought iron will repel mischievous animals far more effectively than wobbly bent wire.
You may look at a typical wrought iron fence, even one up to six feet tall, and doubt its ability to keep burglars out. A determined enough person could climb over a wrought iron fence, that's true. But climbing over a fence is a suspicious-looking and highly noticeable thing to do, and a burglar doesn't want to draw that much attention to himself before he's even inside the house. Burglars are rarely that determined, especially when there's plenty of other houses on the block that don’t have fences as tall and sturdy as yours!
