3 Sources of Fence Damage | Hartsell Brothers Fence Company
Toppling trees or falling branches are usually caused by a tree with rot, which manifests after an improper cut to the tree or damage to the roots. Be on the lookout for signs of rot in any trees, including:
- Dead branches
- Leaves falling outside of autumn
- Mushrooms growing at the base of a tree
Before a storm arrives, remove or secure loose objects in the backyard like lawn furniture and toys. This helps keep damage to a minimum when the wind kicks up. If you have foliage, shrubbery, and branches that extend onto your fence, keep them trimmed so they cannot rub or hit the fence during high winds. Keep on top of repairs of any weak or broken sections of your fence before wind or hail leads to further damage of the surrounding areas.
To reinforce the strength of the fence itself, have a professional inspect your fence and offer recommendations. Better yet, let the pros install your fence in the first place to guarantee it is firmly and properly installed from the start.
However, you can help prevent vandalism to your fence in multiple ways. Fixing the vandalism as soon as it occurs discourages repeat offenses. Strategies like specific landscapes can help as well. Placing certain plants and shrubs near the fence discourages the vandals from accessing the area by making it difficult to approach. Idea include:
- Hedges with thorns like roses, firethorn, or holly
- Prickly plants such as cacti
Beyond your fence, you can participate in community youth education programs about vandalism and gang actions to help prevent vandalism in your community.
