How far from my property boundaries am I required to site a backyard shed or a pool?

A: Requirements for siting structures or pools vary from municipality to municipality, each having zoning by-laws that deal with structures (pools, sheds, additions, etc.). Check with your municipality’s building department to know what is permitted. When you sell your property, you’ll want to avoid problems due to structures being illegally built too close to your property boundary.
