Choosing Garden Fencing
Most people don't have to choose garden fencing on regularly, once installed a fence can last
several years before it requirements renewing, but when the time comes to choose a garden
fence your choice can be critical to achieving privacy and enhancing the pleasure you can get
from your garden. Some fences look wonderful others have a lot more utilitarian appeal.
Often the most cost effective and aesthetically pleasing solution is any timber fence. A timber
fence can last a good fifteen decades if it has been treated through the actual tanalisation
process. Additionally the timber can lend itself well to many styles of Garden fencing. Some
of the most typical wooden garden fences include piquet fencing, fence solar panels, close
board fencing and post and rail walls. Each style regarding wooden garden fence has that's
own unique advantages and disadvantages.
Picket fencing is a good decorative fence although not so hot in the privacy pegs. Individual
picket palisades are spread out intermittently along rails giving a nice decorative boundary
whilst using less timber than other walls, keeping costs lower but at the cost of privacy. Pale
fencing is usually available in a number of normal heights from 900mm through to 1.8m. The
personal pickets can end up being either flat capped, pointed topped, spherical topped or
cheat topped depending upon your taste.
Fence sections offer a good alternative to picket fencing in as much as they are relatively
inexpensive, acquireable, offer some decorative features and offer better privacy compared to
picket. Fence sections tend to be standard 6ft widths in between posts and ranges in standard
heights coming from 3ft through to 6ft giving a good range of options. The cheapest fence
panels tend to be waney side or overlap sections and the more costly are the attractive panels
in standard widths as well as heights.
If you are looking for any timber fence that can provide good privacy plus a degree of
security then choosing a detailed board fence will likely be best for you. Close board is really
a solid fence where the boards overlap each other on the vertical. The fence design is strong
and more heavy duty than other garden fences, but consequently is often more expensive on
material cost. The close panel fence is not particularly decorative but could often be created
to taller heights compared to other styles associated with Garden fencing so provides
improved privacy over and above the other alternatives.
Post and rail fencing is great with regard to gardens that are on the larger dimensions where
due to garden size privacy is probably not so important. Post and rail fences are ideal with
regard to paddocks or substantial gardens. Generally posts are set with 1.8m intervals and
have three or 4 rails attached from 400mm intervals. Mesh, wire or barb can easily end up
being attached but in terms of decoration your choices tend to be either flat rails or machine
The size of your garden and your requirements from your fence, be they decorative or level
of privacy, will be the greatest factors in determining which garden fence is finest for you.
