Bringing forth your vision of having a new fence surrounding your yard in a material of your liking is very appealing. However, before you have your fence installed, you must prepare your yard. Preparing your yard for a fence installation can be a long process. However, the preparation of your yard is key in determining the smoothness of your installation.
Knowing and Marking Your Property Line
Knowing the boundaries of your yard is one of the most important steps in preparing your yard for a fence installation. Unknowingly infringing on the property of someone else is the last thing you want to do. Simply reaching out to your city government or homeowners association can determine the boundaries of where your property begins and ends. Once you are informed, marking the property line with small stakes prevents any mistakes during the installation. Veering off your property line by the slightest amount can result in major repercussions.
Speak With Your Neighbors
After marking your property line, speaking with your neighbors is next on the list. Speaking with them isn’t a requirement, but it is recommended that you speak with your neighbors, informing them of your decision so that they are not bothered by the installation process or the finished product. This step ensures that your neighbors are aware, maintaining peace and respect amongst you and them.
Choosing Your Style and Materials
Another step in preparing for a fence installation is choosing the style and material. Choosing the style and material of your fence before installation saves you time and allows you the chance to establish a budget. It gives you inspiration on how you want your fence to look and which fencing company you want to do the installation.
Clearing A Path
Before a fence installation, it is a good idea to clean your yard, clearing the path of the area your fence will be bordering. This simple and easy task provides space for the contractors and materials necessary for your new fence installation.
