When it comes to building a fence, it’s not as simple as putting it up. You need to consider other factors, such as getting the right material and the potential impact on your neighbors. Legend Fence Corp are San Diego fence installation experts, and so we’ve written a comprehensive guide to planning your fence.

1. Assess your needs

This might seem like a no-brainer, but working out your exact needs will impact your other decisions. Is your fence for keeping kids and pets safe? Is it for keeping things out, such as trespassers or noise? Deciding your needs should be the first stage, and will influence which materials and design you use. Work out whether your fence needs to only serve a practical purpose, or whether you’d like it to look nice too.

2. Work out your budget

Once you’ve settled on your requirements, work out how big you need the fence to be. Find out your property boundaries, either roughly using a tape measure or exactly using blueprints, and use the measurements as a guide. This will also help you to get an idea of how much you can expect to spend, and will likely impact on what materials you decide to use. All of our prices are very competitive, and we will give you a complete breakdown as part of the estimate process.

3. Select the right materials

Fences can be constructed from many different materials, including wood, aluminum, iron, or other materials. If you spent time working out your needs, it should be easy to choose the right material. However, this decision will also be impacted by your budget, as metal fences are more expensive than wooden ones. It can help to do plenty of research beforehand, but we will talk you through all the best options for your property.

4. Alert your neighbors

Seeing as fences often mark property boundaries, it can be helpful to speak to the people who live next to you. Not only is it polite to alert them about the upcoming building work, it can be useful to confirm where boundaries lie, and if they’re happy with the fence you’ve chosen. If you’re lucky they might even offer to split the cost with you!
