Basic Privacy Fence A standard cedar privacy fence typically measures six feet in height and features tightly-fitted boards. The top is usually flat for a smooth, even appearance. One way to add interest to a basic privacy fence is to use dog-eared boards instead, resulting in a dynamic pattern along the top. You can also experiment with different board widths or alternating board heights.
System cost For some of you budget for a system will play a role. All the systems listed below are time tested with maybe the exception of the DogTek which is new to the U.S. But you do get what you pay for. The lower cost systems will work well in the right environments and with the right pets but I would encourage to you buy the best system you can afford. The extra features could save you both time and money. For example, the cost of replacing batteries could become substantial over time. Also, expanding your system will only be possible if you purchase a system that allows compatibility. Features like a low battery indicator or battery backup could prove to be invaluable in the long run.
Semi-Privacy Fence Homeowners who want partial privacy without feeling closed in can choose a semi-privacy fence. These are typically shorter than regular privacy fencing, with small spaces between the boards. Adjusting the gap width and board heights can create aesthetically pleasing designs. Try using tall, thin boards and placing them 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch apart. The slotted effect will make the fence seem more open, while the height will provide the illusion of extra privacy.
