The Best Time of Year for Fence Installation

The Best Time of Year for Fence Installation

Is spring the best time for fence installation? Actually, it all depends.

Home improvement projects spring up this time of year in abundance, and with the pandemic of 2020-2021, these types of projects have kept contractors busier than ever. While some interior projects may not have weather restrictions, outdoor ones certainly are more affected. The best time of year for fence installation depends, with pros and cons for every season.


Spring is a fantastic time to perform a fence installation project. The weather is not too hot and not too cold, and the plants may still be just coming out of dormancy. Spring is a popular time for people to pursue home improvement projects, which may or may not affect how free contractors are to help you. Rain is another concern, but good yard drainage will prevent puddles.


One can just as easily install a new fence in summer. The summer weather is bearable in Maryland and not unfamiliar to your local fencing contractor. Contractors might be less busy, but it all depends. The only downsides to a fence installation in summer are the heat, humidity, and crowding of yard plants.


Fall is arguably the best time of year for fence installation. The weather is not too hot and not too cold, and people tend to do many other landscaping tasks at the same time. Moreover, the plants are dying back down into their dormant state, which leaves more room to work on a new fence installation. Because it is a busy time, it may be harder to find immediate help.


One typically doesn’t think of winter as the best time for outdoor projects. Maryland winters are biting cold, even if it hardly snows. Even so, fence installation can also be done during this time as well. Without the strong summer sun to dry it out, the fence can take its time to build up a protective skin.

When You Are Ready

At the end of the day, the best time for fence installation is wherever you are ready. When you have carefully chosen a contractor and honed in the fence material and style you’d like, you can easily pursue your project, no matter what time of year.
