Who owns the fence (or landscaping) between me and my neighbor?
Look carefully at the subdivision plat or at your own Improvement Location Certificate. Most lots on Silver Plume include special easements (shown as dashed lines) that run parallel to certain property lines (shown as solid lines). These easements are five feet wide, and while the land in them belongs to the owner of the property on which the easement appears, the right to put fences, landscaping, patios, paths, etc.—and those things themselves—belong to the adjacent neighbor, who is the easement owner. So it depends where the fence (or landscaping) is. If a property owner wants to put a fence on his or her own property, but the fence would be in an easement that belongs to his or her neighbor, the property owner must get written permission from the easement owner first.
