Hi everyone, been browsing around looking for possibly a home to purchase and it seems as though many homes in Las Vegas have iron fences around their properties. I find that really odd and not very "homey" or welcoming. I was wondering why this is the case? Is it possibly that these homes are in bad neighborhoods?

Then why is a white picket fence welcoming?

A lot of people fence their lawns to keep dog walkers from letting Fido "go" in their yard. But I suspect most of them are just esthetics.

Common in much older neighborhoods. Rare in newer ones. Used to contain animals in some larger properties. There are zoning codes that prevent solid fences on the front of properties.

lvoc, is that in general, or just in certain places? Sorry if it's a foolish question.

I only see the horse properties with fences. Usually to keep the animals from escaping. Every so often I come closs to running over a chicken/rooster. Over the summer my daughter almost cried when she thought I ran over a baby chick. Before I got out of the car, someone else had stopped to pick up the barely born chic and took it to it's home. That home did have a white picket fence around it.

It is true in the county for sure...and I think likely in the city and Henderson. Don't know about NLV though I have not seen a front walls there. In some zones you may be able to put up a three foot wall. But taller than that has to be an open wall.

You can get it waived though it would involve neighbor notification and a hearing. YOu would likely lose in a tight neighborhood.

Easily done on very large properties.
