Whether it’s taking a dip in the swimming pool, stretching out on a chaise-lounge to read a book on the Kindle or iPad, or falling asleep in a hammock, people like knowing that there’s a boundary in place that keeps the rest of the world from watching them live out their daily lives. A privacy fence offers a bit of seclusion and extra comfort knowing that you can come and go on your property as you please.
Some of the most popular styles of wood privacy fencing includes:
- Stockade or Solid Fence — Constructed with the boards placed tightly against one another, giving you a solid panel.
- Board on Board – Constructed with an overlapping pattern of vertical slats where every other board is attached to the opposite side of the fence rails. This creates a slight break in the fence where if you stand at an angle, you get a slight view of what’s on the other side.
- Board and Batten — similar to a stockade fence, but it has narrow battens (or bars) over the joints for a more finished look. This is also known as a tongue and groove fence.
One of the additional benefits of a privacy fence is that you can also design a custom top for additional height or privacy. Homeowners often choose decorative latticework as a way to extend the fence’s height while also providing some extra visual appeal. Lattice on top will also allow you to feel less closed in.
If you want privacy, no maintenance and the most durable fence for creating your outdoor oasis, then a vinyl privacy fence is the best way to go.
