I built a fence with the pretty side facing me - am I a prick?
I’ve always heard that the pretty side faces your neighbors but I don’t like that one bit. I’m not paying that much money just to sit in my back yard and stare at the ugly side. Am I a dick for putting the ugly side facing my neighbors on two sides?

FYI - I have a good relationship with the neighbors.

It’s not a dick move just a dumb move from a resell perspective

No, but you're making it easier for people to get into your yard.

I laughed out loud at the subject.

Hey man, you paid for it, if you want to see the pretty side, so be it.

If you're neighbors don't like it they can pay to build a pretty side on their property.

Maybe he's like me and doesn't live where fence hoppers live.

Or maybe he has a pit roaming his back yard and is inviting people in so he can save on. Alpo

No, nonsense.

He bought and paid for a new fence. Everyone knows the fence owner gets the pretty side.

You already built a house in what was their backyard, now you face the ugly fence at them.

They hate you already.

You face the pretty part towards the road and anything else towards your yard. You don’t want the ugly side facing the front of your property like an idiot. I think it’s fair to put the main part of your backyard towards yourself in most layouts.

No but when you try to sell the house count how many times buyers say “House was okay but the fence is backwards....”

I did the same 20 years ago at my first home. My neighbor got one 80 ft side of fence that he didn’t have to pay for. The back of his property already had a fence that was built by another neighbor. He was elated that all he had to do was tie in one 80 ft side and about 30 ft back across his front. As soon as I finished mine, he had his put up in 2 days and bought a dog. He didn’t care about having the ugly side.

It is really that ugly?

You've made it easier for culcha to hop your fence though.

Why do you want the side that’s easier to climb facing outside?

regardless it's a trashy fence because you didn't go shadowbox.

They already have a dickhead for a neighbor. I don't guess the ugly side of the fence will male things that much worse.

Glad you have good neighbors, because you gave them a ladder to climb into your back yard by giving them the exposed stringers.
