How Close Can A Shed Be To A Fence? Shed & Fence Laws By State

Ahhh … the shed. A quintessential outdoor Aussie construction where we store all manner of stuff that doesn’t belong (or won’t fit) anywhere else! In many households, it’s also a dwelling where the man and/or woman of the house (in their “man cave” or “she shed”, respectively) can retire to soak up some much-needed peace and quiet.

Can My Neighbour Put Up A Fence Without My Permission?

Your neighbour has suddenly let you know they want to build a new fence on your shared property boundary. Fair enough. Except you think the existing fence is fine, and they expect you to pay for half!

That’s why it’s important you know about the relevant laws, potential problems, and your rights and responsibilities when it comes to fencing.

How To Tell If You Have An Asbestos Fence

While we now know that asbestos is dangerous, it was heavily used throughout Australia from the 1930s, until it was gradually phased out in the 1980s, before a complete ban came into effect in 2003. Used in building materials including tiles, cement, and roofing shingles, it naturally also found its way into fencing products.

If you live in a house built during this time, you may be concerned about asbestos in your home and garden. To help, we’ll break down how to tell if you have an asbestos fence.

Disclaimer: we are not experts on asbestos fencing, however we have thoroughly researched this article and we believe the information to be correct. If you’re worried that you have an asbestos fence on your property, we strongly advise you to contact an asbestos professional to have it inspected and potentially removed.

Does A Privacy Fence Increase The Value Of Your Home?

Privacy Fence

When it comes time to sell, one of the key questions at the forefront of every homeowner’s mind is how to make their property stand out from the crowd. If you’ve already tackled the big-ticket items, like renovating the bathroom, and replacing the carpets, you might be wondering whether installing a privacy fence will increase the value of your home? While there will always be some things you can’t change about your property—like the floorplan or location—there are lots of smaller, cost-effective changes you can make to add value to your home, and a privacy fence is one of them.
