Setting Up Your Fence Layout
This is a great idea for those attempting to purchase their own materials and install themselves or a private contractor, but also for the customer looking to get ballpark figures quickly without requiring installers to make a site visit with you to do the measurements and layout.
Use the below steps and examples to set up your fence layout
1. SET UP FENCE AREA
Put a stake in the ground at each corner of the desired fence area.
2. DECIDE ON GATES
Think about where you would place your gate(s). Put a stake in the ground at the corners of each gate. The most common gate widths are 3'. 4', and 5' for single gates, and 6' or 8' for double gates.
3. DETERMINE NUMBER OF STRETCHES AND THEIR LENGTHS
Measure the total length of each fence stretch. A stretch is defined as an individual straight line of fence unbroken by gates or other end posts. All entries must be in feet (no fractions). Any place where the fence changes direction ends one stretch and starts another. A gate placed in a stretch actually creates two separate stretches (except on either extreme end of a line of fence).
4. DRAW FENCE LAYOUT
Use sketches below as a guide.
5. SEND US YOUR FENCE
