Measuring the height of existing boundaries
Use a tape measure to check the height of any existing boundaries such as fences or walls. On existing fences, measure to the top of the fence post.
If there are raised flower beds or raised ground next to the boundary, measure from the highest ground level to the top of the wall or fence post.
Measuring the Length of the Boundary Required
Each existing boundary of different height will need measuring in length. For example, if your fence is a straight run but drops from 1.8m to 1.5m mid-way, please measure both lengths separately.
Where there is existing standard fencing, you can usually work out the length of the boundary by counting the number of fence panels and multiplying it by the standard width of fence panels, which is 2 meters.
Where there is no existing boundary or it is not standard width fencing, you will need to use the tape measure. Use a rock or something heavy to weight down one end of the tape measure, while you travel to the end of the boundary. Where there will be new freestanding fencing, make a note on the paper where you'd like any access gates to be situated.
