Hi Shelby and welcome to NGA!

I'm thinking you are talking about the Golden Cane Palm, Dypsis lutescens - Here is link to information about it in our database:

Areca Palm (Dypsis lutescens)

As to how far from a fence, it depends on what is on the other side of the fence .. at full maturity the canopy can be as large as 20 feet wide!

Check out the link above and look at the pictures to get an idea of the growth pattern. Considering it's growth habit I'd plant them no less that 4 - 5 feet from the fence line.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Here is a link to a picture-heavy site that has tons of information about your plant so you can better picture what the mature plants will look like in your own yard; the site also has pruning information so you can keep the plant within the boundary you establish.
