Fencing takes time and money to build. So make sure when you pick your materials, you do it right the first time. Having the right fence when and where you need it helps ease the mind.
Here are some things to consider:
Terrain: Is the ground flat? Or does it go over hills and ditches and around curves? Is it covered with brush, trees or open grass? Are the soils rocky, very soft, sandy or firm? The optimum fence design often hinges on answers to these questions.
Know Your Why: Why are you installing the fence? Is it for privacy? To keep the pooch in the yard? To keep the neighborhood kids from pool hopping? A fence can function in multiple ways, the first step is deciding what your needs are and to choose one that works for you.
Material Choices: Considering a wood fence? Before you buy a wood fence think about the commitment you're making. Wood fences require occasional staining or sealing. They can warp and rot over time if not properly cared for. Vinyl is a low maintenance material that offers the look of wood without the constant upkeep. Additional material options include aluminum, steel, wrought iron, and chain link fencing.
Research: Confirm with your homeowners associations and building code officials regarding the codes that dictate fencing style, height, and material. County codes or homeowner association rules may specify which side of the has to be placed toward the public face of the property. You will need to find out how far a fence has to be set back from sidewalks and property lines. Be sure to find out if your fence project will require a building permit.

Be Considerate to your Neighbors: Let your neighbors know about your fencing plans. Be considerate and try not to block their views. If need be, a shared fence may be built by two or more neighbors, but any agreement should be in writing and only after the property boundaries have been professionally surveyed.
Weather Conditions: Always take your climate and weather conditions into consideration when purchasing your fencing materials.
Entrance Plan: For convenience, plan at least two entrances into a fenced area. Make sure that one of these is large enough to allow for bulky outdoor equipment such as a lawn mower, large garbage cans and the other items.
Dress It Up: Once your fence is installed, you can customize it with decorative posts or landscaping. Planting a row of flowers in front of it creates a truly welcoming facade.
