Fencing materials come in as many types, styles, and varieties as your imagination can come up with. Stone, brick, and concrete provide optimal protection from intrusion, but require the most labor intensive installations and are often quite expensive. Wood is beautiful and cheap, but requires regular maintenance to maintain its aesthetic quality. Wrought iron fencing sections can be easily installed, and are quite beautiful, but come at a premium. Depending on your needs and budget, you are guaranteed to find a fencing material that is both beautiful and functional.
With solid and clean lines, stockade wood fences provide a visual barrier. You could use it if you wanted to fence in a garbage storage area or anything else which you do not want to be visible. Pre-assembled stockade fence panels are easily obtainable, making installation fast, easy, and economical. These panels are easy to cut down in size to fit your requirements. This is cost effective. Lattice fencing can be useful for light screening, particularly if it is used as a backdrop for climbing plants and it is good for partial privacy. An attractive option is to have a solid bottom with a lattice work top. This is usually an acceptable good neighbor option as you both have privacy, you are not taking all the sunlight and you can still talk over the top! Split-rail wood fences are a useful fence style for defining boundaries and for horse fencing and fencing in livestock. They are more likely to be found out of town and look good with rustic ranch-style houses. They usually have rough and rugged posts and rails and as all the post and rails are slightly different in size and shape this kind of fence is always unique. They are not very easy to install, although each post has pre-drilled holes for the horizontal rails to fit into and the rails are tapered on each end to fit these holes.
When selecting amongst a variety of fence designs and materials, your chief concerns will be of form and function. Form, as you know is the stylistic and aesthetic appearance of your fence. Some fencing materials are incredibly beautiful, such as a deep wood grain with a custom stain to create the perfectly complimentary color to your existing landscaping, or an ornate wrought iron fence to portray an image of stately elegance. Consider corrugated tin for a rustic, bohemian look or even pickets to create an air of Southern charm. Function primarily deals with the practical purpose for the fence. Will your fence keep animals in or out? Is it meant to minimize the visual lines into your property, giving you maximum privacy? Will it support vine plants or other elements in your current or future landscaping? These are your functional considerations.
