Almost every homeowner wants privacy fencing for their backyard. Whether you want to have a secluded area for your pool, or a sturdy fence that keeps kids and pets safe, a solid fence for your backyard makes your home feel more private and secure. However, if your home doesn’t already have a privacy fence, building one can become expensive very quickly.
Homeowners on a budget shouldn’t give up their fence wants and needs, however. There are plenty of options that can be easily installed for under $2000 to $3000, depending on the size of the yard and material used. Below are some of our favorite privacy fence options that are affordable for any budget:
Basic wood privacy fence
The simplest and most popular privacy fence option is a wood privacy fence. Made from treated pine or cedar, these can be relatively affordable if your backyard is a standard suburban size. While these fences won’t last as long as the more expensive vinyl or metal fencing, they provide a classic look and can easily be installed within a day or two.
Lattice fence panels are typically affordable when purchased at the home improvement store. Though they are not as decorative as a customized lattice fence, they provide a unique look that is ideal for garden fencing and some privacy.
Fencing made from recycled pallets is not quite as sturdy or uniform as a pressure-treated pine or cedar, but it is a highly affordable option that can add privacy to certain areas like your garden or pool area. It can also be cut into a picket style for some additional front yard privacy fencing if you already have the backyard installed with a basic wood privacy fence.
Flat top fencing
Flat top fencing is similar to basic privacy fencing, but is typically built lower and fashioned to look like a railing. The flat top provides somewhat of a view over the fence, but still allows for some privacy as it closes your property off from surrounding properties and the street.
