A backyard needs tender loving care all year long. Every part of the yard should be kept in good shape. As winter approaches, special care needs to be taken with the fence. Fences keep unwanted pests out and add an element of beauty to any yard. When the seasons begin to change, it’s time to look closely at all areas of the fence. Doing so will help keep the fence in the best possible shape even when ice coats the yard and the winter winds blow.
