If you are a business owner, home owner, or own a farm or ranch; you may need the services of a fence contractor to properly secure the perimeter of your property. Fencing in your property can increase its value and add to the attractiveness of the overall landscape. Before hiring a contractor, there are some things you will need to do to prepare your property for fencing installation procedures.
Before any digging occurs on your property, the fence company you’ve hired
needs to contact TN 811. To avoid any danger to yourself or contractors, TN 811
can tell you if lines have been run underground that could be damaged during
the process of setting posts for your fences. Please note, fence companies
are not responsible for anything underground that is not recognized by TN 811.
Often, sprinkler lines can cross over to a neighbor’s property. You should
make sure in advance of having fencing done on your property that your heads
and lines are inside of your property boundaries. This will save your time and
avoid interference with installation of fence lines. If you’re unsure of property
boundaries, it’s best to have a survey done beforehand so you’re aware of the
property lines. You can request this through a survey company.

property boundaries. As stated above, if you’re unsure of property boundaries,
it’s best to have a survey done beforehand so you’re aware of the property
If you follow these steps to properly prepare your property for fencing
installation procedures, the process of installation should go smoothly and
quickly. If you are unsure of what type of fencing you need to purchase, give Allstar Fence and Deck a call today with questions! We can be reached at (615) 635-8040.
