Question

Best fence type for driveway property divider


Hi there. We moved into our house not long ago and we have a driveway that is about 90 feet long and at a 45* angle... our driveway and our neighbors driveway meet like the bottom tip of a V... We need to put some kind of fence to give us some privacy and also keep each others small kids out of the pathways of each others vehicles... There can be gusts of wind that travel down our driveway so it would need to be really wind proof... and hopefully with either a gate or 1 panel that lifted out in case we ever needed extra turn around room...

Any suggestions?

(the last pic is one with an idea of posts etc. our property is the side with the TR7)

you can use a metal gate something like this:

Have it either powder coated or galvanized and it will last you a life time also maintenance free.

Any chance you can draw a map (a plan)?

I don't understand the photos.

Sounds a bit territorial to me! Do the neighbors want one too? How high do you want it? I'd put a lot of thought into it as you and your neighbors have to live with it

Not really territorial... because we have to back down our long driveway I am always worried that their cute little boy will have wandered over (as he does) and he'll be in my blind spot...

Just like my above post suggests is to install a single gate or a double gate with a fence if required. It will keep the kids from wondering out where they are not supposed to be. Have the gate/fence powder coated or galvanized for worry free maintenance.
