Shadow box fence/Neighbour-friendly fence

Residents in the community would most likely benefit from neighbour-friendly fences. Aside from you already having the perimeter line and so your next-door neighbour. This also shows the character of the fence as a shadow box fence. The concept of shadow box lies within the design or on how it was built. The pickets have equal gaps. This design manages the light that passes through and the level of privacy which you want to achieve.

Board on board

The board on board type fencing is built similarly with shadow box fence, but this time, the boards are attached overlapping each other. So, you will have three layers of pickets filling the gaps. This way, the gaps are then closed by the second layer of pickets. The other side would expose the post and rails while on your side offers greater privacy with its board intact.

Cedar privacy fence 

Cedar is an excellent wood due to its natural resistance against decay. You can choose to use green material, the ones that are freshly sourced. The green cedar emits a desirable odour. Furthermore, you can build a cedar fence on your own if you love DIYs. The building of the cedar fence is easy to understand and follow. If you have an old fence made of cedar, you can take that off and reuse the planks on other projects.

Cedar is a top-quality wood known for its resistance against decay. Because the boards are tightly fixed together, the horizontal to form a wide board with no gaps in between. But if you don’t want gaps to form eventually due to the softness of green material, the boards dry totally and build a zero-gap fence.

Horizontal fence

Horizontal fences are different kinds of borders in terms of design. They are not the conventional type you see where most fence’s boards and planks are vertical. Horizontal fences have horizontally laid boards. Due to their complexity in building, the installer must be an expert builder, someone with extensive experience building horizontal barriers. Additionally, the planks are mounted on sturdier posts since they carry extra weight than when the boards are vertical. Thus, horizontal fencing provides a more durable enclosure because it is effective against wind or any other force.

Highly customised horizontal fence offers a contemporary look on your backyard. It also provides greater privacy. Horizontal planks emphasise the size of your lawn and show how they complement any property’s design. Aside from the size, a horizontal fence has a stylish look that serves as an added attraction to your property.

If you aim for wooden fencing with this type, the horizontal fence is a great option.
