Neighbors: much like your family, you don’t get to choose them. Some become your friends for life, some become your nemesis and most of them smile and wave while you walk by. No matter what your neighbors are like, however, you can choose what kind of neighbor you are.
If you’re thinking about installing a fence, you might be worried about neighbor disputes. Neighbors who see contractors working in your yard might automatically assume that they have to deal with an unsightly fence or weeks of listening to hammers. They might also assume that you’re shutting them out.
Keep relations friendly by following this guide from Clendaniel Fence Company. You can still get a beautiful fence that protects your property while making your neighbors happy.
Stay Up to Code
Most townships and homeowners associations have regulations about the materials, safety and style of your fence. This FindLaw article explains that there are usually also height limits on fencing. Be a good neighbor and citizen by becoming familiar with laws about fencing in your area. If you’re having serious property issues, like pest invasion or highway noise, and need a higher fence than local regulations allow, you can apply for a variance.
Talk to Your Neighbor First
No matter the reason for building your fence, a little sweet talk never hurts. If you do want to build your fence to get privacy from prying eyes, we completely understand. Still, putting up a fence “no matter the reason” might send a signal that you’re trying to shut your neighbors out. To alleviate any hard feelings, bring over a baked good or a pot roast and let your neighbor know that you’d like to build a fence to boost your property value. Most neighbors will feel much better about your new fencing if you do them the courtesy of giving them an advance notice.
