Keep Your Aluminum Fence in Good Shape with the Right Landscaping

Apr 19, 2018 | Aluminum Fence

For privacy and security, an aluminum fence can be a great way to get both of these features for your home. While aluminum is generally a very sturdy and long-lasting material for fencing, your landscaping can get in the way if you’re not careful.

Schedule Regular Tree Services

Falling branches and limbs can mean big trouble for your fencing, leading to the fence being severely damaged underneath. In order for you to prevent any problems for the fencing, look into scheduling routine tree trimming services.

With regular maintenance, weak or heavy limbs can be removed so they won’t potentially fall on your fencing.

Avoid Planting Intrusive Shrubs Nearby

Shrubs may look nice lining the fencing around your property, but they could end up damaging the fence if you’re not careful in their planting. To prevent them from weighing down on the fence or growing roots underneath, weakening the fence, make sure to plant them a few feet away.

Use Trellises for Climbing Vines Instead

Climbing vines are a popular choice for aluminum fencing, but they can actually be detrimental to the sturdiness of the fence. In order for your fence to remain sturdy, make sure to use trellises instead for the vines to cling to.

Limit Water Exposure from Sprinklers

Water from nearby sprinkler systems can lead to rust and significant wear on your fencing, making it important to avoid having the sprinklers faced towards the fence.
