Give your yard just the right amount of seclusion with a wooden privacy fence. With fence panels available in a wide range of sizes and styles, you can create a quiet backyard retreat that’s also safe for kids and pets.
Choose Your Wood
Wood fencing is typically made from cedar, pine or redwood. The highest-grade wood is rated clear, followed by premium, select, standard and quality.
• Cedar offers natural beauty, whether you choose to stain it or leave it natural. It’s also resistant to moisture, rot and insects.
• Pine needs to be treated for outdoor use in order to resist rot and termites.
• Redwood is a popular choice because it absorbs and retains all types of finishes.
Whichever type of wood you choose, you can purchase privacy fence panels for quick and easy installation. Wood pickets and rails can help you match your fence to the slope of your yard.
Sizes and Styles
Once you’ve chosen the wood you want, turn your attention to style. Options range from a simple stockade fence to lattice-top panels that allow light and air in while still providing privacy. Some designs even have eye-catching features like aluminum balusters along the top.
Think about how tall your fence will need to be in order to give you the privacy you need. Panels typically range from about four to six feet high. Then, plan the layout, install your fence posts and attach your panels.
