How Tall Can I Build My Privacy Fence?

It’s summer 2020 already, and Coronavirus is still here. You’ve decided to build a new fence on your property to keep your family safe this summer while spending time outside. Great idea! You’ve decided what type of fence you’d like to build, and you know how you’ll pay for your fence. But, do you know how tall to build your fence?

How To Determine Maximum Fence Height

In addition to personal preference, the height of your fence may be determined by local laws, HOA restrictions and even the type of fence.

Local Laws

Your city or county may restrict fence height. You may need to obtain a permit in order to install your fence, and your fence plans will have to comply with local restrictions in order for the permit to be granted. Check with your local building, planning or zoning office before you install your fence in order to avoid strict (and sometimes large!) financial penalties.

HOA Restrictions

The height of your fence may also be determined by restrictions imposed by your neighborhood homeowner’s association (HOA), if you have one. Be sure to check the published covenants and bylaws for any fence restrictions. HOA’s often impose limits on fence height and on fence type and material, as well (no chain link fences, for example). Clear your fence plans with your HOA in advance, to avoid a costly re-do.

Type of Fence

Fence height can also be determined by the type of fence you’re building. For example, if you are building the fence to define a property line or to accent a garden, it may be lower than if you are building a fence for maximum security and privacy.

Privacy. You might build a privacy fence so nosy neighbors can’t see into your yard. A privacy fence would be solid material (wood or vinyl), and you’d want it to be as high as possible, most likely six feet high.

Garden. You’ll build a garden fence to keep pets and other animals such as deer, etc. away from your flower or vegetable garden. It can be lower than a privacy fence. You’ll want to be able to see the beautiful garden, while keeping animals of all sizes out.

Pool. Pool fences are legally required in most jurisdictions. Most pool fences are 48 inches high and non-climbable for safety reasons. There are strict legal requirements for pool fences, so check your local building office codes.

Dog. Building a fence for your pet depends on the size of your pet. If you have a small dog, for instance, you may be able to build a lower fence than if you have a large dog. In either case, you may want the highest fence possible, to keep larger animals from bothering your pet while they’re out playing in your yard.
