Although installing or connecting to a neighbors fence may seem like the right idea for you, going about it the wrong way may lead to problems among neighbors, particularly if you live where the houses are relatively close to one another. Some homeowners find fences become the final point of contention among disagreeable neighbors or create tension with a neighbor with whom you previously had a good relationship. Being courteous with fence plans is the way to avoid any animosity along the way.

Avoid fence disputes by practicing fence etiquette–a good neighbor policy. If you follow zoning regulations and share basics with neighbors before construction, you canĀ install a new fenceĀ AND stay on good terms with the folks next door.

Most people find neighbors appreciate being informed of any decisions you are thinking of making to the property that can affect their views or their adjoining property. Before drawing up fence plans with a contractor, talk to the neighbors on either side of your home and gauge their receptiveness to a fence.
