Follow these instructions to a sturdy chain link fence along your property line.
Mark the Fence Location
Before you start, have the local utility company mark all underground utility lines. Also, be sure to determine the property boundary and the local setback rules.
Once you have determined the property line and legal setback, mark out the location of the fence. Mark the locations of the corner post holes with spray paint. Mark the locations of the remaining line posts, keeping the distance between the posts evenly spaced and under 10 feet.
