Someone who puts up a chain link fence around that house is clearly an asshole.

Depends on the neighborhood. If you have kids and there are lots of strays it is needed for safety.

I see your point in needing a fence for some situations, macweave, but a picket fence would look a lot nicer than a chain link fence. The link fences always rust and sag after some years, and are a booger to remove/replace/repair.
Then too, one could fence only the side and back yard, and still have some security, dog and child retention. A good storm door/entrance door arrangement will do for front of the house security. Somebody intent on mischief is going to jump over a chain link fence anyhow.
No fence or structure in front of the house line is the only covenant in our 50+ year old neighborhood, and it makes the neighborhood look so much nicer than an endless row of prison compounds.

directional mines will work as well. You still need a deadline and the neighbors across the street will whine about shrapnel and blast damage and you wouldn't want to park in front of your house.

It's a corner house; the fence keeps people from cutting through the yard.

Hey, you don't like fences? Then don't put one around YOUR house! I still think Robert Frost was right: "Good fences make good neighbors." And the actual poem was about a WALL! I'm all for extending my security perimeter as far out as possible, and making it as impenetrable as possible.

I had to string TWO fences over the fence to keep the dogs in...and after the last snow storm, they still can jump over...however snow is melting...next week they wont be able to escape and I'll be able to remove a fence a week...hopefully...so much for man made global warming...as Slick Willy said to Gore at his roast: "IT'S THE SPRINGTIME, DUMMY!"

That's the kind of wall I need...
