Define Property Lines
Do you know where your property begins and ends? Your house’s plat maps out your land. If you do not have this document, your county’s records office could provide you one. Or for a fee a land surveyor can determine your property lines and place stakes along the boundary.
Talk to your neighbor
You may not actually be required to talk to your neighbors about it if its within your property and meets neighborhood regulations. You might find out that you and your neighbor can collaborate on the project and split the cost if they were already considering a fence.
