The bottom of the cap or mark shall be not less than three feet but not more than five feet six inches high.  Posts so marked shall be placed not more than thirty-six feet apart and shall be readily visible to any person approaching the property.  Prior to applying a cap or mark which is visible from both sides of a fence shared by different property owners or lessees, all such owners or lessees shall concur in the decision to post their own property.
