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.
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.
An exposed house can also put the people who live in it at risk. Strangers can watch children and adults in the house go about their daily routines. Criminals who kidnap children sometimes will stalk their next potential victim before they make their kidnapping attempt. An open house with no fencing around it will allow criminals to view children in and out of their home. They can also watch the adults in the house leaving women exposed to potential sexual crimes. Criminals may see that a female is alone through her backyard windows and then try to enter her home. Knowing how a fence provides security against kidnapping and sexual assault crimes is important for family safety. A barrier around a yard will also help to provide some privacy and protection for the owners of the home.
