building permits. There may be local zoning or deed restrictions pertaining to
height and type of fence and/ or gate. Check out property line setback requirements. Find
surveyors pins if the fence is to be located near property lines or have the lot surveyed.

locate gate placement.
Call before you dig. Notify
