The fence of classic Americana, the picket fence features widely spaced and pointed pickets that are typically around 3-4ft high. Although not for the more security minded, they do discourage climbing, shed raindrops, and make excellent posts for vines or ivy to grow on. Picket fences are best used for enclosing a garden, pool, or yard, providing a clear but visually appealing boundary marker.
Perfect for keeping away prying eyes, vertical board fences use straight planks spaced tightly together, sometimes even overlapping, to ensure privacy and block out the wind, and can be built to any custom height.
Crisscrossing, layered strips of lath, when overlaid, can be used to construct a beautiful lattice fence. These fences obscure view from the outside while still allowing in plenty of sunlight and air, making them great for pools, decks, and patios. They also fit well in gardens because their structure makes them ideal for any climbing plants.
Post and Rail
Featuring horizontally running boards connected to widely spaced posts, this farm staple is traditionally used for penning in livestock but can also be used to give your home a distinct boundary and a bit of that rural flavor.
Vertical Louvers are a type of wooden fence using staggered placement of angled boards to limit exposure while still allowing in light and air. When viewed straight on the boards obfuscate any view making them a great choice to surround your pool, sauna, or patio with.
