  • Make sure that you CAN put a chain link fence up around the front of the house. I know in my town, you cannot put a chainlink fence around the front. It cannot go beyond the front corner of the house.

  • that is a good point...there is a lady down the street with a fence maybe chicken wire or something not very pretty but anyways and anther few people with the plastic picket fence...would that be in the same rule? or is it just chainlink?

  • Some towns specifically state no chain link. And then there are those that go even further and state it must be a split rail fence or picket fence and can't be over 3 ft high etc. Find out your local laws.
