White fence

Having a fence on your property can provide a wide range of benefits. Some homeowners need a fence to contain a pet or keep unwanted visitors away, while others like the aesthetic appeal of a bordered property line. Regardless of the reason you are getting a backyard fence, there are several things you’ll need to consider before starting the project.

Mark Your Property Line. This is an important initial step. A surveyor can often identify your exact property line and stake it so that the fence doesn’t end up in your neighbor’s territory.

Get HOA Clearance. Many neighborhoods have specific guidelines about the type, color and/or size of fences that are allowed. Before you make your final selections or hire an installer, you’ll need to get your HOA’s approval.

Talk with Your Neighbors. While this is not required, it’s always a nice gesture to inform your neighbors about your upcoming fence project. In some cases, you can save money by simply attaching a back fence to your neighbor’s existing fence on either side to complete your backyard enclosure.

Decide on Fence Material. Once you’ve gotten the go-ahead from your HOA and neighbors, it is time to choose your fencing material. Fences come in a wide range of colors and materials, such as wooden, chain link, powder coated metal, stone and more.

To determine the best choice in fence material, it is important to establish your specific goals for your backyard fence. In doing so, ask yourself the following:

  • Are you getting a fence primarily for safety?
  • Do you have kids and pets that need a hazard-free material?
  • Does the fence need to offer maximum privacy and/or security?
  • How much maintenance are you willing to give to the fence?
  • Does the appearance of the fence matter to you?

Your answers to the above questions will guide you in your fence material selection. At Mobile Joe’s Landscaping, we also have an experienced team who can help you choose the right material, size and placement of your backyard fence. Call today to get your fence installation quote near Alpharetta.

Joe Archer has built a great family business by treating his customer very well. They do a great job, are consistent, are reliable and are friendly. When we've had big family events, Joe takes as much pride in how our yard will look as we do...came by twice a week before a wedding to make sure things looked tops. Uses reel mowers, not rotary, to have the most even look. Use Mobile Joe!!!!

Michael DePadro

I have known Joe for over 10 years. In the past 10 years Joe has completed 3 large landscaping projects for us. My wife and I would never consider using anyone else as Joe does excellent work is dependable and is easily reached if you need to call him for anything. We can highly recommend Joe for any landscape design project or for excellent on going lawn care. Joe's team uses reel mowers so your lawn looks like a golf course fairway when his team is taking care of your lawn maintenance. I have recommended Joe to several friends who have used Joe for small landscape projects and for landscape projects that went into the six figure range. Everyone that I have referred to Joe has been very pleased with his work so give him a call if you are looking for a dependable landscaper.

I was interviewing and getting proposals from landscaping companies for a full front yard renovation at my home. Joe by far seemed the most knowledgeable and experienced of the companies I spoke with - and the friendliest. He laid out different options to meet my budget. His prices were great as well. His team did a great job, showed up on time, and cleaned up where you could not even tell they were there - other than a complete beatiful new front yard landscape with stone walls, new plantings, grass, and trees. Looks awesome! Thanks Mobile Joe!

Mark French

Mobile Joe's Landscaping has taken care of all my landscaping needs for many years - and I highly recommend Joe and his team! Mobile Joe's has designed and implemented various landscape install projects as well as performed all the maintenance at each of the three homes I've owned in north Fulton beginning in the early 1990s. I have no doubt that Joe's expertise in both hardscape and softscape has added significant value to my properties and I'm extremely appreciative for all the attention to detail and great execution that Mobile Joe's Landscaping is known for here in the Roswell / Alpharetta area. These guys truly care about meeting and exceeding customer expectation!
