Our HOA allows chain link or vinyl fences. I put up a four foot chain link and now realize I need privacy on one side of our patio.

The HOA bans the use of any type of food fencing.

If I want to put up a six foot fence on my patio can they enforce it still as a fencing rule? What If it is not a permanent structure, like a horizontal reclining awning, or something that can be moved because it is not in the ground?

It appears I will have to request a vinyl fence to cover my patio side, which will be expensive.

We have a retired person next to us that likes to spy and ease drop on our conversations. His screened in patio has clever material on his screens that camouflage his presence and it is like 10 feet from us. We want some privacy from the annoying neighbor!

Do I have an ability to stand up a temporary barrier on side of patio they cannot prohibit?

David,

Not knowing your CCRs or architectural guidelines (if any), I can’t answer your question.

Have you asked your Board?

What height fence does your HOA permit?

Can you weave plant materials through the links on your 4' fence to create privacy? Or mount, say a "mural" on it that's high at the point that your nosy neighbor uses to spy on you?

I have seen different decorative privacy screens for chain link fences. Think it was in a magazine called "Collections LTD"? I wanted some myself. They make a mural. Never seen them before.

You have to get permissions from your HOA anyways to put up the fence. So why drawing up and submitting plans to them to approve. they can't help it is expensive for you. That's just the price of privacy.

An HOA that allows chain link fences will probably approve anything. Tye have already shown they have no taste.

In many storm-prone areas of the country, such as Florida, high winds can transform fencing components into dangerous projectiles. So many HOA’s in Florida have banned wood. The chain link option can be distasteful when left in bare metal but mine is coated in black which looks good in the back yard.

Thank you for the suggestions.
