Your fence is often the element that completes your yard. In the front, it adds boundaries and curb appeal. At the sides and back, it adds privacy, definition, and increased function. No matter the reason for installing your fence, part of your fence plan should include fence etiquette. You need to consider the impact your fence will have on the neighbors and the community.
Even though it is your property and you might like your fence to be a certain material and certain height, it’s good manners (and sometimes the law) to make sure you’re working with the needs of others who share your city block.
