New Year’s resolutions are a little like promises, particularly since they are made with the best of intentions and are often broken. Fortunately, they are usually promises you make to yourself, so you do not have to feel quite so bad when you break them. But it is always best to make resolutions that you actually intend to follow through on and that, when you do follow through, will somehow improve your life or the lives of those around you.
Most of us swear we are going to finally lose weight, eat cleaner, exercise more, spend more time with family or always remember to bring our reusable shopping bags to the grocery store. Some of these resolutions are easier to stick to than others, but they are all worthy pursuits that, at minimum, get us thinking about ways to be healthier, happier and more responsible for the way we affect the world around us.
Generally, these relate to personal and home-orientated intentions and resolves from being a better friend to improving one’s backyard environment. So, why not start the New Year with a great home improvement project?
There are many ways you can improve a fence, depending largely on the material the fence is made from. And the results can be incredibly satisfying.
The Best Fence ImprovementsSo what can you do to improve the appearance of your fence and the area adjacent to it? Here are some ideas:
Wood fences are generally hardy, but they should be regularly stained and/or sealed to make them weatherproof. Even if you did this before winter, if it’s been a harsh one, it’s a good idea to re-stain and seal in the new year.
If any fences are painted, regardless of the material used to construct them, the new year is a great time to repaint. While maintenance projects involve scraping down blistered and/or peeling paint, you could tackle a total makeover using paint. Add some color and go from bland to bright and embrace spring.
Chain link fences are practical and relatively inexpensive, but they aren’t usually particularly pretty. Get creative and do some planting. Of course, you could simply plant shrubs in a straight line alongside the fence, but why not try a color theme, with larger plants next to the fence, and smaller ones in front. Instead of straight lines, curve the beds for added interest.
Both wood and vinyl panel fences can benefit from the addition of plants to soften their lines. If you don’t like the idea of flower beds or shrubs next to the fence, your new year home improvement project could be to build one or more flower boxes for use next to the fence.
And if You Don’t Have a Fence?If you don’t already have a fence, what better time to plan for one that you can build or have installed in the new year?
