Wood fencing: security and privacy
For homeowners that want to make the very most of their outdoor space, wood fencing is a virtual must-have. A fence can serve a variety of functions. In addition to the traditional property line or border fence, a fence can neatly organize or subdivide an area into defined spaces while protecting it from wandering animals and prowling intruders. In addition, a privacy fence can keep the activities of a yard, garden or pool from the view of passersby. Wood fencing comes in a wide range of styles and colors to fit almost any personal taste.
Fencing is calculated by the foot, with diagrams and estimates figured before the actual work begins, and installation is simple for anyone with a post hole digger. Popular materials include pressure-treated, cedar and redwood. All are rot- and insect-resistant and can be stained or painted to increase the life of the fence. With respect to style, a couple of the more popular options are picket, common with ranch-style homes, or split-rail, made famous by English cottages.
