You can put in the invisible fencing to keep the dog in. No fenced in yards allowed as far as I know.

Covenants clearly state no fences.

Patio and/or Courtyard Villas allow fences. There are many posts in TOTV from people who actually decided to buy a villa because they could let the dog(s) outside without their running away! Ranch, Designer and Premier home styles don't allow fences, and for that I am glad!

Nothing uglier than a stand alone fence of variable heights and materials, unkempt, grass growing underneath and hiding God know what behind it spoiling the view.
VIVA no fence :bigthumbsup:
I am a dog lover and agree that the invisible fence technology is great

BSLINY,

There are a number of rules that one should know about before purchasing in TV. We are thinking of moving in 3 years and I spend a lot of time trying to discover what all the rules are. Like the one post stated, if you need a fence consider one of the villas.

I understand the rule about fencing. Are you allowed to have a hedge around your yard ?

We were told by a Villages Sales Rep that you need prior approval for any type of landscaping, even a hedge.

We are so happy we have a (fenced) courtyard villa.

I understand that hedges are allowed to be up to 4' in height. I also understand that if fine mesh-type material is hidden inside a mature hedge so that it cannot be seen, then this is permissible. It serves the function of a fence without being a "fence." Has anyone you know done this?

The Villages position on this is very clear! :cop: No fences, unless you buy a Courtyard Villa. If you want a fenced property, there are lots of other retirement communities that allow them.

I agree with Handie, our community looks better because of this covenant.

Gfm, a lot of people initially have the thought of trying to creatively get around the "no fences" covenant by considering hedges, hiding mesh, etc. I personally wouldn't be comfortable doing something against the covenants and hoping the neighbours wouldn't report me.
