Beyond the rules of fence installation and design, there are also unwritten rules of fence etiquette.

When it’s time to install new residential fencing on your property, there are numerous local regulations that you may need to follow. For example, if you live in a place with an HOA, you must follow their fence height guidelines. Beyond these rules of fence installation and design, you should be aware of some unwritten rules of fence etiquette. Here are some of our best tips for practicing proper fence etiquette on your property.

Choose a Fence That Coordinates

When choosing your residential fencing, you should consider the styles of fences that immediately surround your home and are present in the broader neighborhood. By choosing a style and color of fencing that matches everything around it, you help ensure that everyone’s property value stays high and that your fence doesn’t become a potential eyesore. 

Check the Property Line

Confirming the property line is one of the most important steps in avoiding disputes while planning your residential fence installation. You can work with the county or a professional surveyor to ensure you are not going over the property line into your neighbor’s yard. This is one of the most common points of contention between neighbors when installing a new fence.

Give a Heads-Up About Installation

Even if your fencing contractor goes above and beyond to minimize disruption at houses around yours, the fence installation process will still involve additional vehicles on your street, walking in your yard and backyard, and noise. As a result, to practice proper fence etiquette, it is a good idea to give your neighbors a heads-up about the installation. Let them know when it will occur and allow them time to prepare.

Invest in Maintenance

Another one of the most important aspects of fence etiquette is making sure that your fence stays attractive. Residential fencing that is rotting or damaged decreases the value of your home and dramatically decreases your curb appeal. After your fence installation, be prepared to invest in annual fence maintenance and repairs as needed.
