I want to build a nice looking wooden fence around my property. However part of it has dirt, part of it has concrete. Also, there are already block walls between my two neighbors. I don't want to screw into my neighbor's block wall fence to install my wooden fence.
Can I build a fence without putting posts in the ground? Can I pour some concrete footings that sit above ground and posts go into that? The footings could make so that it looks decorative.
Is there any reason that I should not do this from a safety perspective? We obviously don't want it to topple over. The footings can be made so that the shape is stable...i.e. it is wider at the bottom.
