According to the old saying, good fences make good neighbors, so if your new neighbors are a curious bunch and you feel watched all the time since they moved in, installing a privacy fence is the best way to restore your privacy. However, maintaining a good relationship with your new neighbor is also essential, so here are a few aspects to take care of to make sure your new fence really works you without offending anyone:
– Inform your new neighbor about your intention to install a new fence – fences are not only blocking out curious eyes, they are also for adding a border to the property, for containing pets and children, for supporting your favorite climbing plant, so you don’t need to be rude to your neighbor by telling him that you want him to stop looking your way, you can cite other reasons for building a fence;
– Agree on the fence type and the material – your new fence will be not only yours, it will also delimit your neighbor’s property, so it is a good idea to discuss and agree on the style of your new fence as well;
– Apologize for the disruption – any fence installation process entails at least some discomfort, so make sure you discuss that issue with your neighbor as well – the gesture will strengthen your relationship with your new neighbor.
