I am getting the landlord's permission to put up a fence. I know she will not care at all, because when i move (if i ever do) i will take it down. My yard is pretty big, but since there is a main highway right in front of it and my low budget I have decided to only fence in the side yard. I dont like the idea of a fence being so close to the road anyway. My dad has over 10 acres fenced in with cattle fencing. It has always worked fine. Although it looks red neck I think I will do that. oh yeah, i live in Kentucky so its okay to be red neck!
