We need to clear some overgrown berry bushes and they are serving as the divider between my home and the neighbors. There are 2 neighboring homes. I would also like to put in some kind of fence for privacy. Is it appropriate to ask the neighbors input as it will affect thier homes as well?

Depends on who's property the bushes and fence are on. If you want the neighbors to be part owners of the fence, and you place it right on the property line, yeah ask. But, if you want it on your land and want control over it I'd say don't ask... it might cause more trouble then it's worth.

I would let the neighbors know you plan to put in a fence. No way should they pay for it, but make sure they are OK with you removing the bushes, and where exactly is your property border? are those your plants or the neighbors? those are things you need to find out. If you plant to get rid of the bushes completely ask your neighbors if they like them and would like to transplant them somewhere else. Either way, asking them is a good way to be courteous and neighborly and will keep you on their good side.
