If you like having a garden in your backyard or you just like to relax on your back patio, then keeping bugs and pests out of your yard is important to you. A privacy fence of at least six feet in height is important in helping you keep the critters out of your yard. There is not a lot you can do about birds and other pests with wings. But there are things that you can do with your backyard to help ensure that the bugs and pests common to the Central Florida area do not intrude on your privacy and ruin your summer fun.

Central Florida is known for its wet weather, which means that there tends to be spots with a lot of standing water. When it comes to attracting mosquitoes and other bugs, nothing does the job quite like puddles of standing water. The best way to prevent standing water in your yard is to have your yard rolled when it is wet to work out all of the depressions and bumps. When you do your fence installation, make sure that the area under your fence does not become a small moat that holds on to the water that runs off after a storm. Bugs will collect in that water and make your summer miserable. The more you can do to eliminate standing water, the more you will reduce your bug population.

Bugs and pests also love to make their homes in thicketed brush and tall grass. Always keep your lawn mowed to prevent bugs and pests from setting up shop in your yard. If you have space between your fence and the ground, then you either need to use a weed trimmer to get rid of the high grass under your fence or use weed and grass killer every spring. Keep the bushes and shrubs in your yard trimmed and clean to prevent pests. If you have neighbors that do not keep their yards very well, then ask them to maintain their property and explain how it can reduce the population of bugs in the area.

Pests that tunnel under fences can be the most frustrating kinds of animals to keep out of your yard. The solution to this is to make sure that your fencing goes at least 12 inches below ground level. Some people buy fencing that is a foot taller than they want to allow for the sub-terrain installation while others attach mesh fencing to the bottom of their wood privacy fence and then install the mesh 12 inches below the surface.

From start to finish, working with this company was a pleasure. The salesman Tyler was very knowledgeable. From the time we had the consultation to the finished product was about a month which was faster than I anticipated. The installers were also very efficient and friendly. They didn’t even mind when I had to let my dogs out in the yard. Overall it was a great experience and my fence looks great. Thank you.

These guys are awesome from start to end. He was very professional with us and gave us exactly what we wanted from our modern style front fencing. He provided fast response and solid communication. The workers were polite and did an amazing job. We only had the fence for less than a week and plenty of compliments from neighbors and family. Will definitely go with them again for our backyard fence and other future needs. Highly Recommended!

Absolutely incredible experience. Everything from the initial sales call, the options they offered compared to their competition and all the way until paying the bill was absolutely perfect. Good people, very considerate of all our plants and very attentive to our needs. Hi integrity. They built a fence that will be here for more years then we will be in this house. But if we ever need another one we will certainly call them again.

Bart just completed a good neighbor fence for me and I am so pleased and impressed with his work. Instead of just putting up a straight fence, he staggered the height giving the fence just a little extra beauty and interest. That combined with his reasonable pricing has left me feeling very satisfied and confident that I have a great vendor to go to next time I need fence work done. He is very pleasant to deal with.
