Do most HOA's not allow privacy fences? If so, why? What do people do about dogs and young children?

Invisable fences for dogs.

Ours allows them. I'm actually very glad for my fence.

Dogs and children don't need a privacy fence to stay in, just a regular fence will do. We have a 4ft. aluminum picketed fence, and our dogs stay in just fine.

I will have to admit being from So Cal the first time we came out on vacation I noticed that homes didn't have fences. So I asked my brother in law what people did with thier dogs and how did they know to stay in their own yard? The invisable fence and dogs were inside animals. I could probably count on one hand how many yards did not have fences in CA. Plus if it got that cold in the winter we just tossed the dogs in the garage. So having an indoor lab is a whole new experience. House came with a fence, split rail with chicken wire so dear labby can run free.

I don't understand the logic behind no privacy fences. At our HOA meeting, they claimed it's for security so that neighbors can see if someone that doesn't belong is in your back yard. How about I'll take care of the security, mmkaykthx. They did say that if 2/3rds of the development agrees, we can do away with that rule. I've had great support from the people I've talked to so far.

In the meantime, though, I've changed my mind about the fence and now want a hedge.

out of curiosity, why does it matter if it's a privacy fence or regular fence? Maybe it's just my neighborhood layout, but a privacy fence wouldn't actually give me more "privacy" anyway, other than not having gaps between the pickets. Nascarnancy, your post made me laugh b/c I pictured you literally tossing the dogs in the garage (not that tossing dogs is funny...). I'm glad your pup can now be a part of your family and home! Did it really get that cold in SoCal?

Well, being that my kids are 2 and 3, of course we go outside with them. I don't know if you've ever had a toddler but, saying "Stay in this area" does not work, so basically going in your backyard would mean dragging the toddler back to the "area" they are allowed to be in every 5-10 seconds. Of course, I suppose an invisible fence could work on kids too, no?

Are there any rules regarding hedges?
