Selecting a Fence : If you are simply after a demarcation line for your property the cheapest starting point will be a simple wire fence mounted on natural stakes a couple of inches in diameter at 3m intervals with a line of wire strung between them. Farmers will often upgrade a demarcation line of this type with either a wire mesh stock fence (1m high) in place of the line wire, or for larger animals or more durable fencing will go for a timber post and rail system roughly chest high and with either 3, 4 or 5 rails depending on their livestock (when keeping sheep/swine, this type of fence will also have the stock mesh clad to the lower section of the post and rail for added containment). Choosing which style and type of fence you require will depend on your exact situation.
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.
