I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a new fence for my back yard. A couple of questions.
My neighbor has an ugly 3 foot PVC fence, should I have them install my 6 foot privacy fence right next to his fence or should I leave a walking path between the two so that I can weed wack? I'd rather not have a path for the kids to run through since this is one of the main reasons I'm putting up a fence.
If you're going to put it up right next to your neighbors fence you may have to talk to him/her. They might have to take sections of their fence down in order to nail the bottom half or third of your fence.
Cedar is expensive--by far the most expensive part of our fence. That being said, you can get dog-eared "fence grade" boards (or even panels in some cases) that run much less than getting regular cedar boards.
I also live on a corner lot so there is a lot of crap I need to deal with to meet regulations.
You might want to check to see if there is a height restriction on a corner lot before you fall in love with a nice 6' tall cedar fence like in the picture. Most cities won't allow more than a 4' fence on corner lot to allow proper sight distance in the intersection. Just FYI
