Placing a fence around the back of a home may have many benefits for homeowners. People who do not have proper fencing around their property leave their home exposed to potential crimes. There are many reports every day that involve neighborhood crimes. Realizing how a fence provides security may help a person determine the advantages to placing a protective barrier around a backyard space. These units will not only provide top-notch security but also create a defined space for a backyard. Homeowners who do place a fence around their yard will help to keep their children and pets safe. Homes that are exposed to strangers may have an increased chance of being burglarized and of having outside items stolen from the property.
Once you know what the HOA will allow you can start planning and designing within their guidelines. It would be very frustrating to spend time planning and designing a wooden fence only to find out the HOA only allows aluminum. The common things HOAs will ask for is a copy of your lot survey with the proposed fence line drawn in red a material list telling the specifications of the material to be used and a picture of the fence you would like.
Now that you know what the HOA will allow its time to plan the placement of your fence. Some HOAs require the fence to be on the property lines while others will let you place the fence in from the property line to allow for shrubs. The HOA will also tell you how far up the house you can come such as the rear corner 20 from the rear corner or to the front of the house. Decide what works best for you and meets HOA regulations. Gate placement is also an important factor in fence layout. I usually suggest two gates- one on each side of the house. I also suggest making one of those gates a double gate. A double gate allows to you to get larger items in your back yard such as a vehicle a shed a play set or anything else.
Vinyl fences electronic fences and invisible fences are the most preferred types of fences across the United States as vinyl fences are most durable and attractive and require low maintenance compared to wood or metal fences. Plus these fences are also termite-free. You have decided you need a fence so now what?
