The answer depends on your local zoning code. Every municipality has its own zoning code, which is available at the municipal office, and may also be available on the municipal website or on www.generalcode.com. You’ll need to know what your property is zoned, and then look up the regulations that are specific to that zone. Your local zoning officer should be able to tell you your zone. Typical residential fence height limits are anywhere from three feet to six feet. If the fence you want to install is higher than what’s allowed, you will need to seek a variance from the local zoning board.—Melanie M. Levan, Esq., McDowell, Posternock, Apell & Detrick, PC
