Any legal documents should be obtained if they are needed for putting up your fence around your home. Have these ready prior to installation.

Your property line also gives you a general idea of pricing.

Check HOA Standards

There are many HOA associations that only accept certain types of fencing. Be sure to check on your HOA requirements prior to making your decision on fencing. Look into any guidelines and regulations that must be enforced. Discuss your options with other homeowners.
