Best Privacy Fence to Fend Off Nosey Neighbors


Deciding on wood for your privacy fence gives you plenty of style options.

Nice weather means more time spent outdoors for you and your family. Enjoying your backyard with loved ones, hanging out by the pool, and perfecting the art of barbecue. But uninvited guests can become a real disturbance, especially when they live next door. Luckily, you can count on the knowledgeable people at Hercules Fence to help you plan out and install the perfect privacy fence for your home.

Where to start

A good first step is to check with your homeowner’s association and the city to see what type of rules or permits may be applicable. Next, you should hire a professional to help plan out where your fence will run, and what material would be best. They’ll be able to help with everything that goes into installing a fence before it goes up.

How Tall

A common question when it comes to privacy fences is just exactly how tall the fence needs to be. Generally speaking, a six-foot fence will be tall enough to keep your yard private, and there may be local ordinances against building a fence any higher. Be sure to check with a professional before moving forward with your privacy fence.


Traditionally, privacy fences are made of wood because they can be cut to the necessary height, and offer a classic look. You have plenty of options when it comes to wood fencing, but they require some attention to make sure you get the most out of the life of your fence. Vinyl fencing has become very popular because of the product’s long life and uniform appearance. Unlike with wood, you don’t have to worry about warping, expansion or contraction, rot or splinters from a vinyl fence.
