Preparing Your Yard for Fence Installation Companies
A new fence installation gives you an easy way to define and protect your property’s boundary. Furthermore, a fence should feel like an extension of your home. They can provide privacy, security, and aesthetics without costing too much. Even if you love the idea of getting a fence, there are a few things you should do first to prepare for a visit from your local fence installation company.
Tell Your Neighbors About the Project
After marking the property line, we advise you to inform your neighbors of the project. If you happen to share the fence with them, you should make sure that it will not create a problem. We never want to surprise your neighbors with our noise and mess while completing the project.
Call the Utility Company Before Installing the Fence
Nobody wants to pierce a utility line or cable when digging for a new fence installation. Since we do not want to dig near lines or pipes, you should call your local utility company. If a cable is snapped, you could be liable for the damages. Plus, you could make the whole neighborhood go without water or power. Instead of taking a random guess at what might happen, give the utility company a call and ask for diagrams. Otherwise, it could again result in having to dig up the fence and replace it because of an accident. The utility company will typically hand out plans to anyone who asks.
Remove Obstacles and Obstructions
Prior to breaking ground, you will want to walk the perimeter of your property and closely inspect it. Keep your eyes peeled for large rocks, tree stumps, and anything else covering the ground. If something is standing in the way of your installation, make sure to have it removed. We will double check this before installing the fence.
We always ask that you do the same with your personal belongings. If children’s toys, dog leashes and outside equipment are laying around, please move to an area that won’t be in the project space. This will make our fencers job easier and eliminate the risk of damage to your property.
