AND, if anyone has any suggestions for the new fence, post away! I'm thinking 6' chain link (good quality) from the edge of the wooden fence forward (actually it would jog inward a bit so it's basically along the edge of my driveway, since the dogs have too much fun digging on that narrow strip of grass inside the current 4' chain link). Then a nice 6' chain link gate across the driveway meeting up with the house, in about the same spot or maybe a few feet farther forward.
According to the Planning Department I can use 6' chain link for this project (if it passes in front of the front corner of my house, is within 10' of the sidewalk, or a corner lot I'd have to use 4' or shorter).
The rest of the yard is fully enclosed in 6' privacy fence. We have some digging issues with Coke but I already planning on dropping some chicken wire along the bottom. Once he figures out there's something in the way he gives up.
