Prior to Building
Do you know the reason as to why you are building a fence? When you know the answer to this question you can determine the purpose of your fence and figure out the design. Some valid reasons to building a fence are as followed: demarcate property lines, gain privacy, contain pets, contain children, or keep people away from your pool.
Make sure you check local building codes. If you contact your town hall or city’s zoning office, you can learn about easements, height restrictions, or setbacks.
Make sure to verify your property lines as well. You should be able to find this information on your home’s closing papers. The papers will confirm where your property begins and ends. If you are not sure about your property lines, hire a land surveyor.
Talk to Your Neighbors. Make sure you discuss building plans with your neighbors to make sure you are on good terms with them about the idea of building a fence, especially if you share a common area.
Choosing a Fence Style
Remember, your fence is an extension of your home. It has the ability to add charm and character to your yard. Make sure your fence will harmonize with the architectural design of your home by making it match with your home’s exterior- stone, wood, painted trim. Do you want a porch railing, pillars or finial? If so, repeat this design with your fence to add a hint of coordination of look.
