If you’re sitting around waiting for spring to arrive before installing a new boundary fence, then the wait is over. Not because spring is here – although we’re told it’s coming soon – but because you can easily get your fence installed now. You can, at least, start to prepare for the process.
The ground may still be frozen, but as long as we’re not in the middle of a March snowstorm, now is as good a time as any to install a new fence. In fact, once all the snow starts to melt, and April showers turn the ground soft and muddy, you may not be able to get that fence installed. Frozen ground may be harder to dig into, but soggy, muddy ground often makes it hard to get your fence posts installed level.
Preparing for your new Colorado boundary fence
Besides how solid or mushy the ground is there are a few other things that you need to consider before breaking ground for your new fence. If this is your first fence, you need to check with your HOA or municipality to learn about any guidelines or rules for installing a boundary fence on your property. Height could play a factor in most residential areas like Denver.
Once you know the rules and regulations, it’s time to check with your utility company to make sure that your boundary fence installation isn’t going to affect any power lines, pipes, or cables that are running through your property. The last thing you want to do is cause a massive blackout on your block because you’re the idiot who didn’t check with the city or utility company before digging a hole.
