Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

The title of this essay is more than just a line from the Robert Frost poem “Mending Wall.” It’s also a good mantra to stick with.

We at Rocky Mountain Fence & Construction (RMFC) believe in “good fences” but in other ways as well: in our quality, craftsmanship, detail, reliability and customer service.

While we install fences on commercial land, we also serve residential properties and have learned a lot about why good fences make good neighbors. That’s why we want to share with you some basic tips about “fence sense.”

Before anything else, check with your municipality’s rules and regulations. Many towns, villages and cities have restrictions regarding fences’ heights, styles, colors and forms. And if you belong to a homeowners association (HOA), check its statutes too. You might be surprised by what its members don’t want in their area.

Check your property lines, lest you erect a fence on a neighbors’ land, which is illegal and whose ramifications of doing so can get quite ugly and expensive.

Let your neighbors know your installation plans before you take action. It’s not mandatory, but life is a lot more pleasant when you have a good rapport with the folks next door.

As with many other possessions in life, fences look great when brand-new but need to be maintained. That means your being willing to invest the time (and maybe money) to keep it clean and in excellent shape. Otherwise, it could become the bane of your neighbors and the whole vicinity.

RMFC has been serving residential and commercial sectors in the Treasure Valley for 30 years, so we’re obviously tops in customer satisfaction. We have earned the trust of many people and pride ourselves on our thorough and excellent service. For an estimate on your project, call 208-995-5059, email us at or fill in the form on this website. We look forward to hearing from you!
