Hedge or Fence - Suggestion needed.
We will be soon moving into our first house and are thinking about put a fence or tree hedge around our property. The house is at a corner lot, although the neighborhood is very nice and the roads are used by residents only (not a main road to anywhere), with a 3 years kid - a little worried about she wondering into the road. The house is colonial, North side of the lot is a 6' fence of the north neighbor. West side neighbor planted a row of tree along the his property - but not a pricy hedge. see attached picture.
Some initial thoughts: Fence once installed it is easy to maintain but sometime looks boring and gray. But intimidated by the maintenance of a tree Hedge. We see a lot of formal hedges (like in Newport RI) that are very beautiful but do not know how many time/effort a hedge required. (been a first time home owner). Also, if go with hedge - what kind? Conifer trees or something else.
Also, cost wise? Increase the property value wise?..
Another question, look at the picture the proposed fence line A and B, when we looked this house and talked about put a fence, our agent said the fence on the front better in the middle of the property (line B) instead of line A - any reason for that, or I can put where ever I wanted?
Any thoughts and suggestion are appreciated.
Thanks in advance
