Hello neighbors.
I am in need. My new landlords have given permission for me to put up a fence on the property where I am a new tenant so my dogs can have a secure enclosure to romp and play.
I can afford the materials for a simple post and wire fence. I can not afford professional installation and everyone I know thats willing to help is as old and beat up as I am to dig holes and set posts and pull wire.

But maybe all of us can take a turn with a shovel and beating posts into the ground until its done? :P

Vitamin water, ice tea, cold water during. A cold beer and sandwiches after.

My dogs are still working through the move. They arent doing well being crated and housebound as much as they are while I work.

Thank you in advance for your kind consideration.

Im hoping within a week or two depending on responses.
Still working out logistics of placement and possibly tying into the neighbors fence.
THANK YOU! :)

Jo,
Do not go buy any materials!
We have had materials offered to help you.
The problem is that a new "fence" would probably require a permit to be pulled by a licensed contractor, as you are a tenant you cannot pull a home owners permit, and the landlord cannot pull a homeowners permit as they do not live there.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors cannot pull a permit, but I have a alternative solution to the problem. We would make what would be considered "temporary barricading" that is basically a movable temporary fence that is not dug into the ground, similar to what is used at construction sites. This type of "barricade" does not require a permit to install, and if built right will not tip over even if the dogs jump on it.
Let Me know your address and I will double check with the county on the permit requirements, but we have an alternative if a "fence" permit is required.

Steve

Jo, I will check with the County today as to their requirements for a fence.

Depending on how aggressively your dogs try to escape, a simple wire fence may be all you need. I put one up at my house the day we moved in as a temporary fence until I had time to build a real fence. That was over 20 years ago and I'm still using the same fence. Took about an hour to put up about 200ft of fencing. Used those green posts and bailing wire to connect the wire fencing. Very inexpensive and effective if your dogs aren't escape artists.

Jo, Good news, the County says you are in their MR2 (Mountain Residential 2) area, and that as long as the fence is 42" tall or less, no permit is required!
