Choosing your Wood Fence

Wood Fence One of the most popular fencing materials both today and it the past is wood. A wooden fence is known to bring plenty of security and appeal to your home while being easy to maintain and even easier to afford. However, when you mention a wooden fence to some, not everyone has the same vision. A wood fence can come in several different styles, so it is important to determine which style is best for your home.


The picket wood fence is probably the most popular and well known style of wooden fence available. Its style includes pointed pickets that are spaced out between three to four feet apart. This fence isn’t the ideal style for privacy but it can prevent climbing and is great for gardens that need sunlight and include vines and ivy.

Vertical Board

This style of wood fence helps to block wind and prying eyes by including planks that are straight and kept close together. This style of fence is also great for preventing climbing as well. Its style is what makes it the ideal style for a privacy or security fence.


A lattice fence is typically used around patios and pools because of its layered style. This means that plenty of sunlight and air can pass through the fence while still providing the necessary safety measures needed. The gaps within the fence can also make it an ideal fence for your garden that includes vines or other climbing plants.
