We have an U-shaped backyard that wraps around our L-shaped house. All margins of our property have privacy fence on them from our neighbors, but our yard is open from the margins to the house. It's very short distance that we need to build to secure the backyard.
What I'd like is to put up a fence that I can feel safe about.
My daughter is 7 and is generally very, very cautious. I'd like to be able to garden in the backyard and know she's within the fence and hasn't drifted out of bounds for some reason or another. With the U-shaped yard there's no way for me to see the whole yard at once and know where she is. Unnerving!
I really prefer the clean look of black steel fencing, but I have a feeling that plain old board on board privacy fencing is more secure because people can't look to see what may or may not be in the backyard.
Am I overthinking this? Should I put up a fence that I will love long-term, or should I choose privacy fence?
