RoseWind Cohousing, Port Townsend WA, is long-built, with half of our 9 acre site in single-family home sites. Fences here are sometimes desired not just to keep dogs in, but to keep deer out: they munch through landscaping. Eight of our 24 households have fenced their yards, all with either short fencing (for short dogs) or fencing that is easy to see through and doesn't create much of a visible boundary. This hasn't been a problem. We still have lots of open space, not only a large central commons, but many smaller areas of commons that thread among the home sites, so none of the fencing interferes with walking all around the site. Because of the deer, we also have fencing around our community garden and orchards, though, again, it's quite see-through. Typical is rigid hog wire panels, with a grid of maybe 4"x8" (?) and wooden frames. (Google hog wire fences if you want to see what that looks like.) We also fenced an area of our commons as an area where dog owners can let their dogs run around, while the owners watch and socialize with each other. That is just black plastic netting, and is hardly noticeable. Maraiah Lynn Nadeau where it's what we consider hot, at 78 degrees
