3 Ways to Freshen Up Your Fence this Summer

The arrival of the summer season makes for the perfect time to switch things up. Nothing breathes new life into your home’s exterior like a fresh coat of paint, especially if you’re feeling boxed in by the way your yard looks, and you’d be surprised to see just how much of a difference freshening up your fence can make on your home’s aesthetic. 

Read on to discover three intriguing ways you can transform your fence before the dog days of summer give way to the crisp chill of autumn air.

1. Give It a Fresh Coat of Paint

Painting is the top choice — and perhaps the most obvious — for your fence because it makes for such a bold statement. You can opt for exciting new colors, go traditional with a stunning white, or fall in love with your current hue all over again with a touch-up. 

Ideally, you’ll paint or treat your fence every few years, so if it’s been a while since your last coat, you might notice it looking less vibrant than usual. Painting can revive an old fence damaged by the elements and give your outdoor space an entirely new vibe.

2. Wash Your Fence

Painting is an easy number-one option, but you could argue that washing your fence shares the top spot all the same. Experts recommend washing before starting to paint anyway, so there’s no better time to hose down your fence than during the summertime when it can dry out in the sun. Just remember to use a gentle cleanser on your fence’s material. Depending on how often you wash it, hosing it down might be enough to call it clean.

3. Refresh with a Unique Wood Stain

Even if you aren’t a fan of bright, bold colors, there are still plenty of options for a summer fence project. Homeowners that prefer more of a natural look can still spice up their summer with a beautiful wood stain. It’s a fantastic alternative to paints that can more easily match virtually any decor or exterior painting.
