If you are reading this, then you are probably wondering what to do about your front yard. The answer is simple: add some fences! Many Virginia Beach residents are probably fine with putting a vinyl fence around their backyard, but they often forget to put up a barrier around their other yard, too. Here’s what you need to know as you proceed.
Get the Permit
We’ve mentioned this in the past, but before you can build any fences around your property, you need to get all of the paperwork in order. That way, you won’t be hit with a fine or other consequence for property damage or installing a fence without permission from the town or county where you live. The permitting process will also enlighten you to finer details, such as fence height and acceptable materials.
Secure HOA Approval
The next step is to get your local HOA to approve your fence. Please note that they will also have regulations and guidelines regarding how high your fence will be and what it can be made of, along with what you are supposed to do with it. Certain colors and styles are likely to be incompatible with the aesthetics of the neighborhood in which you live, so you must account for that when talking to the homeowners association council.
Determine the Purpose
The last step is to figure out what you want to use the fence for; this will probably be different from the fence in the backyard that protects a pool or creates a space for playing backyard sports. For the front yard, the fence will theoretically help improve curb appeal. It should also lend some privacy to the front of your home. If it protects your pets and prevents wild animals from crossing your property lines, then you know you’ve got a solidly-built fence. Plus it can be a fantastic support for any climbing plants or vines you want to use to liven up your home!
