  • So, you’ve decided that it’s finally time for a vinyl horse fence! Excellent! But before you begin the process, there are a few preliminary steps you should review and plan prior to construction.

    First of all, it’s probably a good idea to discuss your fencing plans with neighbors or property owners who own land at the borders your property. This is especially true for those property lines that will be affected by your fence. It is 100% imperative that you ensure your vinyl fence will be located entirely on your property. This means that the fence line should lie inside your property line – not on the line.

    It’s also a good idea to check if your property has easements (a right of way guaranteed to a separate party) that might limit the design, size, or location of your fence. When checking on your deed, it’s also a good idea to review records of underground utility. Checking beforehand where the underground utilities may be will help you communicate your concerns with your fencing provider prior to the big day. Remember, before you begin any digging or excavation, it is imperative to check for any underground utility that may be in the area. This includes power lines, cable lines, pipes or sewer lines, septic lines, and any other utility that may be located underground on your property.

    It’s also a good idea to review any zoning laws in your local area. Occasionally, zoning laws can regulate the size, design, or placement of your fencing. If you plan to construct a vinyl horse fence in an area located inside a historic district or an area that could be considered a subdivision, it’s very important that you consult your neighborhood association and review any property covenants prior to construction. You may also find it wise to contact your local building inspection team in order to gather information you may need considering the shape, diameter, or depth of your fence. And finally, you will also find it wise to apply for building permits that may be required by local code.

    We’ve already discussed the importance of ensuring your horse or pasture fence will complement your existing construction and will be aesthetically pleasing when compared to its surroundings. Remember, the construction of a vinyl horse or pasture fence is a major project. For this reason, it’s a good idea to take some time to examine all the aspects involved with vinyl horse fence construction. At the end of your project, you, and those around you, will be happy you’ve done your homework.
