I'd want forms all the way to the sidewalk but when the evaluation inspector sees them in 4 years he may tell me to take them out. Maybe those slim lane dividers in front?


As I'm reading the city rules of fences they may come around and say it doesn't look nice and have me remove it. These are some of the rules. I sure don't want to ask them about the concrete forms, they'll say no right away even though they will technically hold the wood fence on top.

For fencing
• Assembled ornamental metal, such as forged iron or welded
aluminium and assembled cast metal.
•Steel or aluminium chain-link*.
• Wood lattice or polyvinyl chloride (PVC) lattice.
• Wood boards, plywood sheets and wood shingles.
• Unmilled wooden posts.
•Concrete, wood or metal for fence posts.
•Polyvinyl chloride resin (PVC).
The metal components of a fence must be coated with rust
protector paint or another anti-rust treatment.
The wooden components of a fence, except for the components
of a rail fence, must be painted, stained or varnished.
Fences must be kept in good condition at all times

Last time the cop showed up he started to lean on me saying I was the problem and he couldn't care less giving him a ticket if I wanted him to have one but he'd probably refuse and I'd go to court and he may do some revenge.

Anyway I need a real barrier.

theres an old saying..if your having problems with your neighbors you didnt buy enough land....

It would hurt resale for sure unless I use slim concrete dividers but will they sway with the ground and make the fence lean in a couple of years with several thaws and freeze? If I build a regular fence what will he do to it?

I may lose some resale value anyway I took out the only tub and I have a 5' shower instead. I don't plan to move I'm in a perfect spot to get my supplies for work.

Here we build a fence at least 6" inside the property line. Build a fence and set up a camera to record the action.

Maybe some of the sample border walls we have down here?

So a steel/wrought iron fence of some kind I'm thinking but a concrete footer would help as well. Maybe even have the footer come out of the ground a few inches.

I need a fence where I'm not going to see his face. Seriously the base has to be car proof, I just know he's going to ram it. I'm calling the city today to see if I can do it or if they have suggestions.

Dealing with things like this in my jurisdiction. We require a fence permit to even erect one. We also have restrictions on the type of material, you know no razor wire, barbed wire, etc on residentially zoned properties.

I have never reviewed a permit for this type of fence construction. I would have an issue even though we don't list it as "not approved" Most municipalities would view if it is not listed as approved it is disapproved. For darn sure if you don't get an approval prior to erecting, you know he will complain and if they come out they may require you remove it.


What about a 6" steel post filled with concrete at least towards the front and set in a footing. Then welded horizontal steel slats. Of course install a video camera and post "smile your on camera" where he can see it.
It will cost more, but would they allow something like this, with a concrete wall poured 36' deep, possibly a couplr vertical pillars then steel slats. Much more decorative, can't hurt your property value.

set fence back 3 ft on your property and put large boulders as decorative car stops in front of the fence..i have seen many homes that back up to major roads use that to keep cars out of their back yards..im surprised you dont have cameras to catch your neighbor damaging your property..a friend had the same issue as you, he put up cameras and told neighbor and all bs stopped the next day..

Without actual measurements I have about 5-6 feet beside the house. I'm not giving more than an inch as the tenant will use it as his own even if like you say put boulders. He'll stuff everything he can with leaves, construction garbage debris or what ever mischief he can think of. Just yesterday he vandalized more of the already destroyed snow fence and posts.

I think I have no choice to put cameras, I would wire them, I don't want to be constantly replacing batteries. Putting cameras is going to be an expensive thing.

I'm waiting for a technician at the city to call me back...

The picture is an interesting idea, I would have poured concrete compared to what looks like cinder blocks.
