Where you position your fencing will have an impact on how it will be utilised. For example, a fence that is installed on your boundary line shows where your property starts and ends, while a fence that runs across the top of a low wall provides additional security for your home.
Although it’s not legally required, official fence requirements in Gold Coast have certain recommendations in place for homeowners. If you are considering installing a fence behind some existing plants or shrubs, or you are planning to plant in front of your fence after it has been installed, you should take this into consideration. Installing the fence 600mm inside the property boundary will create enough space to allow for a low maintenance planting bed which can help to make the fence more visually appealing on busy roads while also adding more screening.
