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.
Where do I get fences? How do I know which fences are good for my house? You could purchase fences either in your local hardware stores in ready-to-assemble kits or from your local fence manufacturing company. Purchasing fences on the Internet should be avoided as you could get poor quality fences when you purchase without looking. Payment for the fences should be preferably made by either credit card or check so that if the company does not deliver the goods as promised you can stop payment. This would save you a lot of trouble.
After you decide where to place the fence you need to pick a fence design you like. Since this series of articles is on wooden fencing I will tell you about common wood fence styles. The great thing about wood is the design is almost endless. Most fence contractors are also skilled carpenters and can help you design and build a fence that is unique to your tastes. With that being said there are common fence designs. Dog Ear Scalloped Arched or Half Moon Flat Top Shadow box Board on Board Spaced Picket and Trim Top are some of the most common fences we install. Some of the fence styles can mix such as an arched shadow box or a scalloped board on board. The easiest way to see pictures of these designs is to go to Google images and type in the fence style followed by the word fence.
Are you planning to install fences around your house? Do fences do more than just give protection and privacy to your house? Robert Frost the American poet rightly pointed out that Good fences make good neighbors. When you install fences around your house your dog would not be able to run out of your house and bark at people. This helps build good relationships in the community. Fences also add to the beauty of your home and garden and make it a secure place to live in.
People who place their pets in the backyard on leashes may be placing them in harms way. That is because tying a dog or cat on a leash in the backyard could put them at risk for an animal attack. Coyotes will often prey on backyard animals as their choice of meals. When a pet is exposed to the wild and is tied on a leash it can put them in danger from other animals both wild and domestic. Pets in the backyard are also at risk of being kidnapped by a person. Criminals who want a dog but do not want to pay for one may see a pet tied up in a yard and simply put it in their car. Popular breeds may be more at risk than just average mutts. Expensive breeds and puppies may be at a greater risk for theft. Puppies and pure-bred dogs can be kidnapped and sold for profit. The Department of Justice has reports of many pet thefts and discusses the profit that can come from it.
