All About Fence is ready to help you with your residential fence installation service & repair in Bothell. Like most cities, Bothell has regulations for residential fencing. These are covered in the Bothell Municipal code, section 12.14.150, titled “Fences and Freestanding Walls.” The regulations are sensible and quite clear. Most of them will not apply to ordinary residential fencing. For example, electric fences and razor wire are prohibited, and fences that are over six feet tall have special rules. Barbed wire is permitted in connection with animal husbandry.
The regulation that is most likely to require attention is measurement of the fence height. Specifically, “from the horizontal projection of the predominant ground level of either the city approved finish grade where such has been established or from the … predominant existing grade …” to the top level of the fence. The only time this might be an issue is if you are planning for a six-foot privacy fence. It then becomes important so that you will be able to determine if you fall under those “over six feet” special rules. We can help you with this part of the planning. More importantly, we can put in a beautiful fence that will enhance your residential property. We will make every effort to help you fulfill your goals for your residential fence.
