Top 20 Best Wooden Fence Ideas 2022
20 Wooden fence ideas for all garden lovers.
We all know how a fence provides privacy and security and fortunately both fence materials and designs have increased greatly.
Wooden fences have been around for eons, we all know the pocket fences and the larch lap fence panels where the slats overlap each other to create privacy.
While the vertical slat fences have been around for quite some time, it’s the horizontal slat fences – also known as Venetian fencing – that are super popular today. These are often used to create a modern garden design.
This type of fencing option removes the need for ‘boards’ or ‘stringers’, and this will appeal to you if you have minimalist ambitions.
There are great modern wood fences, rustic wooden fences and fences in different colors to suit your taste.
Popular Wood choices for fences are Cedar wood, Redwood, European and Tropical hardwood as well as pressure treated woods.
Besides the type of wood you choose, there are some other things which will influence the finished look of your wooden fence:
- The material of the fence posts
- How wide the fence panels are
- The height of your fence
- How close or wide apart the wood/slats are
- Your budget
- Preference for high or low maintenance fence
Reason for installing a wooden fence:
The reason for installing a fence in the first place, will greatly influence the type of fence needed for your home.
- To keep unwanted visitors out or to create more privacy, a full height close board or overlap fence is a great option as there are no gaps in the fence.
- To keep children or pets within your garden a higher fence is also needed, but space between the slats might be preferred, to create a more spacious feel.
- To mark your boundary or a fence for aesthetic reasons, means you have countless options. There are many lower and more open fence options available, though closed fences or high panels are also possible.
Using lighting that’s thoughtfully positioned also creates night time ‘appeal’ for those all-important summer parties.
We hope this list of 20 wooden fence ideas will give you the inspiration to find the perfect fence for your garden!
