How to Find Your Property Line

So, you have picked out the fencing material, style, and where you want it. Perhaps it is to enclose a pool or to section off a garden. Establishing those border lines are easy since they are most likely already on your property. But, if the fence is planned to travel along the yard, the property lines will have to be established. Identifying where your property begins and ends can be difficult to see with the eyes. Discovering your property line before the fence is installed avoids legal disputes and helps you determine your land from your neighbor’s.
