How to Install a Snow Fence

How to Install a Snow Fence
Fall is just around the corner. In a few months, snowflakes will be very visible and will be a headache to all. Different issues will come up once these snowflakes appear.

Plowing the driveway will be a very tedious task during the winter months. Shopping budget, dinning out and going to places on weekends will be cut off due to too much cost on snow removal. 


Snow fencing is the answer to keep off snow from your lawns and driveways. Snow Fencing can also lessen road accidents since it can improve a driver’s visibility, as well as minimized the snow on the roads or highways. How to effectively install a Snow Fence is the most important question. 


Here are a few tips to guide you on how to install a snow fence:


Although a taller fence is pricey, this can trap more snow. Use a fence which is about to 6 feet as they are easier to handle compared to the taller ones. There will not be any wasted time as these fences are easier to install.


In order for you to determine the distance of the area you need to fence from the place you want the snow cleared, multiply the height of the snow fence by 35. The product of this is enough to keep the snow away from behind and between the areas you want cleared. The closer the fence, the greater the danger of getting more snow on the road.


Make sure that a gap is between 6 to 12 inches. To make it more effective the gap should contain 40 to 50% open space. These gaps can keep the snow fence from being obscured and let the wind surge freely under the fence.


You may extend the fence around 20 to 50 feet past the street. This is to ensure that the wind will not be thrashing snow around the fence and onto the road.


Lastly, check the previous records where the highest flow has mounted up. Once you have this information, put up the fence facing that direction. Placing the fence in the wrong direction will not do an ample work on shielding you and the road. Make the posts strong enough by supporting it with wires.


Make sure that the snow fence is checked regularly for any damages. Damaged fences should be replaced once discovered. This is to ensure safety and avoid too much cost at one time. By not replacing the damaged when you see them, total reconstruction needs to be done.


There are a lot of benefits to installing a snow fence. One of the most important benefits is your safety. More visibility on the road will lessen any untoward vehicular accidents. Aside from that, snow accumulation can be lessened as well as the cost of snow removal.


This being the case, you will not need to worry about time being spent plowing snow from your front yard and your driveway. Start building your own snow fence, not just for economic reasons but most of all for your safety.
