I will only remind you that it may not be a good idea to attach the fence directly to you house if you live in an area known for termite damage. Termites love fences, and then keep on eating ... right into your house! So, let's think about that. What materials are you considering for the fence? Cedar, treated pine, redwood, non-wood materials ??? As I learn more details, I may be able to share with you some of my experiences and thoughts on fences. Thanks for your question. This is a good season for fence building, before the blazing heat of summer.
