Some children enjoy playing outside and may request to do so on more than one occasion. The backyard could be set up for children to play with mini playground structures picnic tables and sand toys. When there is no protective barrier around the yard children will be exposed to the potential of strangers. Criminals can approach children quickly and engage in a conversation with them. It does not take long to have a child kidnapped right from their own yard. Parents who leave their children in the backyard and watch them from the window could have a false sense of trust as they believe that their own backyard is safe. The truth may be that quiet neighborhoods are as much at risk as city backyard spaces. When a criminal walks down the street and sees a child playing alone it could put that child at risk for being taken. The Department of Justice has reports of many children who go missing every day; many of these crimes happen in their own neighborhood.
The wonderful thing about a double gate is that it functions as a single gate and the second gate leaf only opens when you choose for it to. When considering gate placement think of ease of entry and exit. You may want a gate close to the side door in a garage. A good place for a double gate is the side of the house close to the driveway. That way if you do need to get a vehicle through it you dont have to drive across the front yard. Gates in the back of the fence can be nice if you have a deep lot or back up to an easement. Gates into next door neighbors yards can also be nice but keep in mind if you or the neighbor sell the house the gate may not be welcome by the new occupant.
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.
