Safety is a primary concern in Lakeway. That includes fencing. Below is the section of our Ordinance pertaining to fencing standards.

According to Section 24.02.442 Fences

1. General Standards.

(13) All fences, including wood, wrought-iron, and ornamental fencing, shall be continuous flat-topped without spikes and sharp points.

Additional recommendation: For existing fencing with spikes or sharp points that you want to modify to be deer friendly, you may remove the sharp points at the top of the pickets and be sure to plug the holes to prevent additional hazards.
