Wood Fencing There are three main types of wood fencing: privacy, picket, and rail fences. Conventional types of wood used include cedar, pine, redwood, cypress, and more. The availability of each will depend on the region. • Privacy fences serve to provide the homeowner with seclusion and an intimate setting in the back or front yard. Usually six to eight feel tall, privacy fences are common in both urban and suburban environments. • Picket fences, led by the white picket fence, are a truly American tradition. They are shorter than a privacy fence (3-4 feet tall) and are not intended to allow privacy so much as an enclosed yard and a colonial style. Styles of picket fencing include arched, scalloped, gothic, French gothic, dog-eared, and standard flat-top. • Rail fences are prevalent in rural areas such as farms and ranches, where animal containment is necessary. Rail fences consist of round, square, board, or split rails attached to posts. They allow an uninterrupted view of the landscape. Often, a mesh wire is combined with rail fence framing to keep smaller animals in or out.
Planning Your Fencing Project Another thing to consider in your fence planning is the measurements. Careful measurement is a necessity if you want to purchase the proper quantity of materials and avoid problems during installation. It is always important to check your propertys boundary lines when measuring for fence construction. You do not want to have to make your neighbor upset and have to remove a just installed fence because you did not stay within your property boundaries. Another important item to check during fence measurement and before fence construction is your local ordinances and homeowners association rules. You need to make sure that the fence you build meets all required specifications. The next thing to do is to contact your local utilities and have them come and mark your property. Buried lines and cables must be considered before you begin digging fence posts. If there are lines buried where you planned to build, you will need to adjust your plans and re-measure before purchasing materials.
