fence in backyard with house in behind

A fence is defined as any barrier, including a guard, railing, planting that is constructed with the intent of enclosing a property.

Your fence can be made out of many different materials, both man made and organic, including hedges and densely planted evergreens. A row of trees or something similar is not considered a fence in the Tillsonburg fence by-law.

If you are installing or replacing a fence that is adjacent to a pool, whether the pool belongs to you or your neighbour, a permit is required and the fence must be constructed in accordance with the pool fencing requirements.
