A copy of the approved permit may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless otherwise directed by customer, in writing, prior to start of installation or repair, fences will be installed to follow the grade of the property so that there are no gaps between the ground and bottom of fence. If changes in grade exist, the top of the fence may not be installed at a consistent level. Lynch Fence Co Inc will re-distribute excavated dirt in the area of the fence installation but will not haul away or move dirt to other parts of customer property, unless otherwise specified in fence estimate.
