3 Everyday Alternative Uses For Construction Fencing

Construction & Contractors Blog

Construction fencing is affordable, temporary fencing that can be put up and taken down easily. It's often used around building sites when homes, commercial properties and other buildings are being built, or when other construction-type projects are going on. However, there are other uses for this handy temporary fencing. These are a few alternative uses to consider. 

1. Protect New Plants

When your seeds, bulbs or tiny plants are just beginning to sprout, you have to worry about them being trampled by people, dogs or other "traffic." Even though you might warn your family members to stay away from certain areas of your property, they might forget, or someone else (or something else!) might accidentally trample your plants. Although construction fencing might not be a beautiful addition to your landscaping, it can be used temporarily until your plants are taller, stronger and easier to see.  

2. Keep Parties Contained

Even though you might be excited about hosting a party or other event on your property, you might want to keep the crowd contained to one area of the yard. Luckily, construction fencing can do just that. You can use it to set up a "party" area and to help keep people away from areas that you might not want them to be. If you attach balloons or other decorations, or if you choose construction fencing in a color that matches the event's color scheme, it can even be festive.

3. Keep Kids Safe

Construction fencing (such as can be found from http://rent-a-fence.com/) can be great for creating barriers for your children so that they can play outside safely. For example, you may want to be able to watch your kids from the window, and you might not have a very good view of the entire yard. By using construction fencing, you can throw up a play area and create safe boundaries for your kids while allowing them to have fun outside. With construction fencing, you can easily move the play area as needed or can expand it as you feel comfortable doing so, and you can always remove it when your kids aren't going to be outdoors or when you feel that they don't need these boundaries anymore.

As you can see, construction fencing can actually be handy for a lot more than just construction projects. It can be purchased at a home improvement store or online, and it's great to keep a roll or two on hand for these types of situations.

Those Cold, January Nights

When I was in college, I lived in an old house just south of the university campus with five other girls. When we came back from Christmas break, the heater was broken. The beginning of January was the coldest time of the year, and because it was the weekend, the heating company couldn't come fix it for a few days. My roommates and I pulled our mattresses into the front room and slept all together to keep warm. Two weeks later, our heater broke again! That time we ended up getting a completely new furnace. Needless to say, we got to be good friends with the heating contractor that month, and it was a good experience that led to the creation of this blog.
