You may think that building a fence on your property will be a great idea. Whether you have a dog and want them to be able to roam free in the yard, or are just looking to get some more privacy, there’s things you should have in place before you build a fence. 


Have An Idea Of What You Want


Once you know why you want to install the fence, you can decide what type of fence you’ll need. Do you want a basic chain link fence? Are there regulations on what type of fence you need to put up around your pool? Does your HOA require that you check with them before you install a fence? You’ll need to answer these questions and fill your own desires in order to get the type of fence that you want. 


Decide On What Material You Need


The material you buy for your fence will decide what kind of maintenance that you’ll have to do in the future. Wooden fences, for example, may need to be stained or painted from time to time. The wood can also warp over time due to rotting. Other materials that you may use for a fence include aluminum, steel, wrought iron and bamboo. Each of these materials has pros and cons including the amount of rusting, and the need for replacement and repairing. 


You Can Mix Fencing Materials


To save money, you can mix your fencing materials up a bit. In the front, you could do a picket fence that’s connected to a chain link fence in the back. Mixing the right fencing materials can look good and work with your finances.  


A Little Research Goes A Long Way


You can talk to people you know in order to find out what’s the best course of action in putting up a fence. Sometimes, even building codes can inhibit what type of fence you’re able to put up. Your friends and neighbors may also have some great advice for you as to what type of fence will be good for your property and needs. 


Use Planted Materials


If putting up a fence seems like a daunting process, you may want to try using bushes and other greenery to make borders on your property. 


Check With Your Neighbors


Be a good neighbor and let them know your plans to put up a fence. Nothing is worse than having a neighborly feud over a few inches of property line or the blocking of a view. You may even be able to go in on building a fence with your neighbor, just make sure that you have an agreement in writing.
