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.
Fencing can bring about the much needed privacy and security we want in our homes. Not only that, wood fencing in particular, can also give the house and its surrounding landscape the right touch of rustic charm to complete its look. Wood fences come in a variety of styles and wood materials. It is best to keep in mind though, that choosing the right design for a wood fence depends largely on two main factors that a homeowner may be aiming for: the form, or the aesthetic appeal; and the functionality, or the main purpose why you are putting up a fence in the first place.
This is a very strong and durable wood, it can last a lifetime with regular maintenance. The good news is that this type of wood doesn’t soak up too much moisture, making it ideal for most climates. Maintenance isn’t a long and painful process and will require you scraping off the old varnish or paint and repainting it every couple of years to keep it looking as good as new.
