Wood Fence Styles

Styles of Wood Fencing

Wood fencing comes in a variety of colors, designs, and heights. The style you choose will likely be determined by the fence's function. A picket fence will provide charm but very little additional security. A privacy fence will keep out your neighbor's pets and other unwanted intruders. Each type of fence also comes in a variety of different wood species.
