FAQs on Decorative Lawn Address Markers and Plaques
Where should house numbers be placed?
House address numbers are most visible when placed on the side of a curbside mailbox. If you have a wall mount mailbox, make sure your house numbers are well lit and visible on a lawn address sign or on the side of your home. The greater the distance from the road the larger your home address numbers will need to be.
How big should address numbers be?
Address numbers should be visible from the street. 3” house address numbers are legible up to 70 feet away. 5” house numbers are legible up to 132 feet away. For distances over 160 feet away, use 8” or larger home address numbers and lawn address signs.
Do you have to have house numbers on your house?
Most municipal ordinances stipulate that home address numbers must be clearly displayed; however, they don’t have to be installed on the home. As long as they are visible, address numbers can also be mounted on a lawn address sign, a mailbox, a mailbox post, or on a fence.
What color should house number be?
High contrast colors include black, white, red, and metallic colors. The color of your house address numbers doesn’t really matter but to ensure they are clearly visible; the color should greatly contrast with the background color where the house numbers are being mounted.
