The biggest fencing mistake that you can make is not understanding where the boundaries are on your property. Specifically, messing around with property lines can set you up for major conflict with your neighbors should things go awry. Your documentation for the property should show where your property lines are located. If you can’t find your property lines, you can also hire a professional to come and measure your property lines for you.
Going a bit deeper, understanding your property includes understanding what is underneath it. Specifically, the pipes and lines that run across your property can be incredibly important for the fencing installation process. Many types of fencing require that posts be laid into the ground for support. The average property has various lines that connect cable, electricity, sewer, and other essential utilities to the residence. Interfering or intercepting any of these lines can lead to issues, so acquaint yourself with the layout of your property’s grid before starting any major construction operations.
