Privacy fences

Do they usually add value to the home when you sell, like a kitchen remodel? I'm thinking of getting one, but it's gonna be probably $5-8k.

The white ones look terrible. Don't blend at all.

Get a spite fence.

I'm all for fences and hedges and tall ones at that. Americans labor under the impression that fences and hedges are somehow rude, or rather that they reflect on the unfriendliness of the owner.

I think high hedges or high fences add character to a house and create private spaces to enjoy, to relax without having to feel on display, to walk past your windows naked without your neighbors seeing your swinging dick (even if more's the pity in a few cases.) And they make being invited into the enclosed space or your house all the more special. Fences and hedges are respectful of neighbors, not dismissive.

More fences. More hedges.

(But if you put up a privacy fence, spend the money to plant at least a few clusters of trees or evergreen shrubs against them so that it looks like a plan to beautify your house, not at attempt to keep awful neighbors at bay.

No, they don’t add value, per se. If you want one, spend the money on a fence you like.

They do not add value and will look like shit in 3 years if you live in a warm climate. The only plus is for a buyer seeking a home that is already fenced in or if you need a fenced in yard for pets.

We recommend razor wire, sandbags, and claymores.

The vinyl fences are ghastly, just ghastly.
