Regulations Regarding Fencing in Eden Prairie

Over the years we’ve gotten plenty of questions about fence installations. We are professionals, that’s what we’re here for. To make it easier for our customers, we have some of the most common ones answered here about Eden Prairie. We always recommend checking your local government’s website as well if you have any additional questions.

Where can I place my fence on the property?

Eden Prairie residential areas require fences to be built 1 foot in from the property line. If you desire a boundary fence that resides on the actual property line, you’ll need to get written permission from your neighbor. This agreement ensures that both parties will share ownership and participate in maintenance responsibilities.

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

Although you aren’t legally required to notify your neighbors when you build a fence within your own property, we still highly recommend it. Keeping communication open between you and your neighbor can be important for many reasons such as needing to access their property during construction or if you’d like to connect to an existing fence.

Do I need a fence permit?

No permits are required in Eden Prairie for fence construction. 

Who calls the utilities when installing a fence?

When you choose to work with Northland Fence, our fence installation pros will contact Gopher State One Call before installation begins. After receiving the all-clear, we will carefully mark all utilities and hazardous areas.

If you choose to install your fence, you’ll need to do this step yourself. Never start digging until after contacting utilities for your safety!

What are the height restrictions on fences in Eden Prairie?

Every county has unique height restrictions, and Eden Prairie is no exception. For the front yard setback, fences cannot exceed 4 feet with a minimum of 50% visibility. This means fences you can more easily see through, like chain link or ornamental steel. That height requirement drops to 3 feet if it’s a solid fence, and further reduces to 2.5 feet on corner properties for safety reasons.

All other fences in the back of your property can be up to 6 feet in height.

Can I build my fence on an easement?

Never block any easements on your Eden Prairie property. All sewer access, utility outlets, and telephone poles need to remain easily accessible. Make sure you also don’t block any public right of way either.

Are there any design or material restrictions?

All barbed wire and electric fences are not allowed in Minnesota.
