Building a new residential fence is much easier than you might think. Even so, it will take plenty of time, patience, and cooperation from your neighbors. You’ll also need to get approval from your local homeowner’s association, who represent your community. Sometimes you will also consult with local officials, especially when you need permits for the height and breadth of your fence. Let’s check it out.
For Privacy Fences
Privacy fences need to keep busybodies out, but you can’t make them too high. For one thing, they could block sightlines for vehicles passing through your neck of the woods. It only needs to be six feet tall, and that’s usually the highest extent that any residential fences will go to; unless of course, your neighbors decide to get creative and use ladders or stilts to snoop on you.
For Dog Fences
When you have a dog fence, keeping your four-legged pal safe and happy is one of the biggest factors you will need to account for; otherwise, they might still find other, unexpected ways to become a nuisance that no one will find cute. That’s why you should look into either four foot or six foot high fences. That way, you can discourage escape attempts over the top. That said, you will need to think of ingenious ways to keep them from digging through the bottom, especially if your canine friend is a natural burrower.
For Pool Fences
Now that summer is almost here, you will want to start opening up your pool. After all, it’s a great way to help yourself beat the heat. But keeping everyone in your family safe should be your top priority, and that means adding a pool fence around the edge of your pool. That way, no one can fall into when you’re not paying attention. Most of the time, standard pool fences, especially in residential settings, are only going to be four feet high. If you’re stuck and looking for inspiration, take some time to look at the fences around your community pool.
For Boundary Fences
Let’s turn our attention to boundary fences. Marking the edges of your property is also immensely important. They can help boost the curb appeal of your home, and plus, they can be super creative when you let your kids create astonishing works of art. They can also help settle any disputes you might have with anyone who claims to own land that is yours, and marks where one property is supposed to end and the other one begins.
For Garden Fences
Lastly, don’t forget about your garden! Whether you are just tiptoeing through the tulips or raising strawberries to sell at the weekly farmers market, you will want to make sure that your bounty is well-protected. Curious squirrels and hungry deer can come and trample your precious garden, along with local kids out to make trouble and raise a ruckus. Don’t let them do that to you this spring and summer.
