Purchasing a home in a gated Denver community will prove to be a smart move. The first things that typically pass through people`s mind when they hear “gated community” is safety and security. These are also some of the main reasons why people opt for living in a gated community.

These communities only open their gates to residents and their guests. Most of them have CCTV cameras, 24/7 surveillance or intercom systems.

Besides security, people in these communities can also enjoy better privacy, without worrying about intruders or trespassers. A gated community is typically a calm and quiet environment, with no speeding vehicles and reduced traffic. Can you imagine the greatness of living without the constant bustle and traffic noise?

A gated community also creates a better sense of community, a sort of unspoken understanding between people living here. Besides, some communities even have their own events that bring residents together.

Finally yet importantly, if you live in such a community, you will not be bothered by annoying solicitors (unauthorized people asking for donations, salesmen etc.), which is one of the benefits of being able to restrict entry to people from outside. This sense of control is great and also promotes a sense of freedom.

Not everyone can afford to live in a gated community. But you can create security and safety in your home by contacting a reputable residential fence company to get their ideas on what types of fencing would fit your property and budget.

 

Protecting Your Children and Pets with a New Fence

Besides their decorative role, some fences are also designed for protection and security. Parents of small children as well as pet parents are concerned about keeping their children and animals safe and prevent the possibility that they leave their playground in the backyard and end up in the street, in potentially dangerous situations. Fences also keep unwanted visitors out and create a much needed privacy.

What are the best child and pet friendly fences?

Fences in this category must be, first of all, higher than decorative fences (at least four feet) and have no elements that could allow climbing (rails, frame, mesh etc.). Splinters, protruding nails or wire ends may cause injuries to children and animals, so make sure your fence doesn’t have them. A child and pet-friendly Thornton gate and fence must also be very stable, with a gate that can be closed securely.

When you choose such a fence for your property, you must do it with containment in mind. Always remember that kids are very active and they may attempt and even find ways to climb, and animals are very capable to dig under the fence, or jump high. Make sure you install an adequate fence, but don`t forget that it is not a substitute for your attentiveness.
