It is possible. As you can see from my screenshot, all you have to do is rotate the fence so that the green part is on the other side and then you can place anything right up to the edge of the fence.
I thought I saw something about fences not taking up space, once upon a time. Maybe they were placed at that time?
Its a hack.
