Buying a New Home and a New Fence in Frederick

September 24, 2017 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins

Frederick_marylandIn terms of new housing opportunities, Frederick County remains one of the best places to live that’s just outside the Washington DC area.  With its revitalized downtown district, there are a plethora of bars, shops and fine dining establishments that make Frederick a destination for any special occasion.  Many visit Frederick to check out Top Chef contestant Brian Voltaggio’s Volt, and then end up hearing about the Tasting Room or the Wine Kitchen on the Creek, which are two of Frederick’s finest restaurants.  If you’ve never had a Tasting Room filet, you’re missing out on perfection!  If you’re into the outdoors, you can play tennis at Baker Park, hike the Catoctin Mountains or play golf at one of the area’s award-winning golf courses.

Work in the DC?  You’re in luck if you don’t relish the thought of driving down I-270 each day to the city as you can hope on the train to Union Station or take a shuttle bus to Shady Grove Station, and avoid the high parking fees and gasoline that a daily commute to DC often requires.  Work in the Chantilly or Reston area?  You can still avoid the I-270 traffic jams by taking Route 15 South each day and enjoy the view of the sprawling hills and green trees on each side of this two-lane road.

The great thing about most new communities in Frederick is that some offer a fence with the purchase of a home, depending upon which community you choose.  Having a fence included in the price of the house often makes it easier for home buyers as the fence is there when they take possession of the home, meaning they don’t have to worry about financing a fence afterward.  If you end up buying a home where you’re required to purchase your own fence, be thankful that many of these builders understand the value of curb appeal and allow just one type of fence—often maintenance free vinyl—to go on your property.

How to Improve Your Curb Appeal: Four Tips for Accessorizing Your Fence:

September 3, 2017 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins

Have you ever stood in your fenced-in yard after a few years and wondered how you could make the space more attractive?  You’ve yanked out old bushes and shrubs, replaced them with new ones, changed your outdoor furniture and still you’re looking to do something to improve curb appeal for your property.  So what should you do?

Perhaps it’s time to accessorize your fence!

It’s true—there are now plenty of after-market items to choose from that will improve your home’s curb appeal by upgrading your fence.  Many of them are minor additions but they can have a huge impact on your outdoor space—especially when it comes time to sell your home.  Here are a four ways you can accessorize your fence:

Love to garden and are looking for both a way to decorate your fence and plant some herbs or flowers that take up minimal space?  Flower boxes hung on the fence are your best bet!  The good news is that you can you can be as creative as you like when it comes to fence flower boxes. If you’re not necessarily a do it yourself person, you can buy a flower box from your local nursery and purchase hooks to hang the box on your fence.  If you consider yourself somewhat crafty, you can design, build and paint your own boxes to match other elements either in your yard or your home.

Shop around online and you’ll find you can also purchase ready-made flower boxes that come in various shapes and sizes that either come with either hooks or openings on the bottom of the box so you can just sit them on the fence rail.  Be mindful that if you live in an area that gets a lot of wind that you’ll want to find ways to brace the boxes so that they don’t fall off should major gusts  hit your area.

Privacy Mesh

Have a picket, split rail or aluminum fence and want to add a bit of privacy without having to replace the entire fence?  You can now purchase privacy mesh for your fence and hang it inside your yard.  If you have small dogs or other four-legged pets, privacy mesh also keeps them from crawling through the fence rails.  Likewise, privacy mesh can also keep some unwanted animals—like rabbits—from getting in your garden and chewing your flowers.
