Driving Through Vegas Neighborhoods

Notice the block walls? Those are the equivalent of chain link fences here in many neighborhoods including mine. When I first moved here, I didn’t understand why this is done but it does work very well. This is common here and in California.

  1. There are block walls in our area and I also noted them when I lived in Florida. Part of the reason for block walls is to muffle the sound from traffic, especially those very high block walls seen between a major thoroughfare and a neighborhood.

    • That is okay, Leanne. I have researched this state and have found that just behind Alaska, Nevada is the most mountainous state in our union. I have seen so many hikers and rock climbers here outside of the city over the years, it’s crazy man! We have a paradise here for those folks, and I have seen license plates as we call them, from so many states over the years. Desert life. 👍🏻

  2. I love your walls. Chain link is nice for Molly to watch out over the neighbourhood but I would have six foot wood fencing all around our yard if I had my way.

    • Thanks, Anne Marie. The block does a fine job, and may help with dogs? Not sure. Are there zoning restrictions in your township that won’t allow a wood fence? My home is in an HOA and always keeps an eye on our front lawn and home appearance which I am grateful for.

      • Some areas have restrictions. Ours doesn’t. We have wood fencing at the back and chain link out front. I don’t know why Dan put chain link in front. Probably because we had our Casey dog then and Dan wanted her to be able to see outside of the yard.

        • I would love to have met Casey. Some dogs will actually chew through the wood as I have seen on the tube. Yikes!

          • Casey was an amazing dog. She was so good with my elderly mother and with the grandbabies. And our little blind cat. She was so empathetic and responsible.

            • Wow. She and all dogs are 100 percent family, she was so very intelligent too. ☺️❤️
