Taking a little time to plan can avoid headaches and save money.
Be sure to:
- Measure carefully. Remember that you are responsible for your property line and set back requirements set forth by the prevailing authority.
- Draw the plan on graph paper
- Consult neighbors, check homeowners associations for restrictions, check local building codes and zoning requirements, and check with utility companies about lines
- Select a fence style that is complementary to and practical for the landscape
- Order the materials
