Whether you are installing yourself or hiring a fence contractor, it is recommended to get familiar with the Florham Park Township Fence Codes and Ordinances (provided below). Once you have an idea of the fence style/type and its proposed location, contact Borough Hall to verify that your project meets their guidelines. In order to save time, bring a copy of your property survey with the proposed fence marked in red. We have installed numerous wood, vinyl, aluminum, and Deer Control Fences in Florham Park, Morris County, where we have been providing professional fence service since the 1960’s. Perhaps you’ve taken notice, when a fence has a signature “Academy Fence” sign, you will see it is well planned, sturdy, and provides many years of beauty and longevity.
§ 250-19Walls and fences; shrubbery.
C. B-1, PB-1, PB-2 and C Zones. In these zones, fences or walls not exceeding seven feet in height shall be permitted in the side and rear yards. A fence or wall used for screening, if required by the Planning Board, may be higher. All fences and walls shall be at least six inches inside the property line. When a wall or fence is installed on top of a berm, railroad tie wall, or other similar structure or mounding, the height of the fence shall include the height of the berm, retaining wall or other mounding which is at a higher elevation than the predominant grade of the property on which the fence is located, as determined by the Zoning Officer.
(1) The finished or “good side” of the fence must face away from the property on which installed.
(2) If fencing has dissimilar sides in respect to finish, the structural members, supports and braces must face property for which the fence is intended, and the finished side must face adjoining property.
