Wood fencing is the most common type of fence in residential neighborhoods. Its low cost and customization options make it a no-brainer for most families, and at FloriFence we strive to make the best wooden fences for our clients. While wood is the go-to for many homes, you can make your fence stand out with a variety of customization options. Below are the top seven wood designs you can use to customize your fence:
Picket fencing is a classic, and comes in closed-top (with wood boards connecting the perimeter), level-top (without a topper), or scalloped-top designs. Picket fencing is ideal for front yard fencing or garden fencing where you want a lower fence to provide a better view.
Similar to picket fencing lattice fencing is a popular ornamental wood design that provides a view into and out of your yard. It is a common design option for gardens as it adds a decorative flair to your trellis.
Privacy fencing is both a practical and aesthetically pleasing option for home backyards. You can customize your privacy fence with different toppers, paints, and wood stains and instantly make your home more secure with a solid boundary for the perimeter of your yard.
Shadowbox fences are similar to privacy fences, but the boards are layered with a gap in between to create a “shadow” effect. While these fences appear solid and offer privacy for your home, the spaces between allow for greater airflow. This is a great advantage in the summertime as the cool breeze can flow through your fence and keep you cool.
A louvered fence is similar to a privacy fence but the boards are angled slightly to allow for greater airflow and a bit of visibility in and outside the fence. If you want privacy for your yard but with a bit of a window to the outside world, louvered fencing is a great option.
Split rail fencing is a type of decorative fence often used for gardens and front yards of rustic cottage-style homes. Split rail is a simple fence design that can give your yard a more homey feel, and is relatively cheap to install.
