Regulations Regarding Fencing in Chanhassen

Many of our customers come to us with questions about fence installation. We compiled some of the most common ones and geared the answers towards Chanhassen to make it easier for our customers to make an informed decision about their fence installation. We do our best to keep these up-to-date, but you’re also welcome to check your city’s website or look at their fencing information page

Where can I place my fence on the property?

You must place any fencing or retaining walls fully within your property unless you receive written permission from your neighbor to build on the property line.

Do I need to notify my neighbors? If so, when?

If you plan on building on the property line, you will have to speak with your neighbors. Otherwise, while you legally don’t have to talk to them about your fence installation, we recommend that you give them a courtesy heads-up. This helps keep the peace and can make future talks more civil. Plus, it can help in case the installation team needs to step into their property for a moment during the process. 

Do I need a fence permit?

Yes. Chanhassen requires a permit for any fence construction.

Who calls the utilities when installing a fence?

If you install your own fence, you must call utility companies yourself. It’s important that you do this in order to have a safe installation process. If you hire Northland to install your fence, we’ll do all that work for you.

What are the height restrictions on fences in Chanhassen, MN?

Fences may not exceed 6 feet 6 inches. If your property is on a street corner, there is also a “sight triangle” you must be aware of regarding visibility for drivers. If you build within this triangle, your fence cannot be taller than 3 feet. For front yard setbacks, there are also rules – chainlink can’t be taller than 4 feet, and opaque fences can’t be taller than 3 feet. 

Can I build my fence on an easement?

In Chanhassen, you must get an encroachment agreement to build on an easement. Not only does this require a fee and legal process, but there’s no guarantee that you will be approved. We recommend just not building on the easement. 

Are there any design or material restrictions?

In all of Minnesota, you cannot build electric or barbed wire fences on residential property.
