Choosing the Wood Fence for You

Wood fenceWhen the concept of a fence began almost 400 years ago, the list of materials to use was limited. While a wood fence has been used to protect and highlight a home and property, the style has evolved to meet the needs of the homeowner. Today, homeowners can choose from several different styles of wood fence to create the perfect look for their homes.


When you imagine the traditional home that meets the American dream, you are probably imagining a picket fence. This type of fence includes pointed pickets that tend to reach three to four feet in height that are spread apart rather wide. While this fence is not typically intended for security or privacy purposes, it is a great choice when it comes to aesthetic purposes.

Vertical Board

If you are looking to add a level of privacy to your yard, this style is best for you. This wood fence uses straight planks placed close together to prevent those on the street from seeing into your yard. It can be built to reach any height and it can also cut down on the amount of wind you experience in your yard.


Want privacy but don’t want to give up natural light? This style of fence allows you to have the best of both worlds. Perfect for patios, gardens, and pools, this wood fence provides you with privacy without cutting you off from the outside world.
