Fence Styles – How to Choose the Right Fence Style for Your Property

Choosing the right garden fence can prove to be an overwhelming task. With so many on the market, it can be hard to pick a style which suits both your garden and your needs. We’re on hand to help you choose a fencing solution that will meet your specifications.

 

Featherboard

 

Noticeable by their overlapping structure, featherboard fencing panels are one of the strongest we have on the market. This solution is perfect for those who value home security and garden privacy. To add more style and character, you can choose between concave or convex finishes.

 

Advantages:

 

  • They’re durable and long lasting.
  • Featherboard panels are exceptionally strong.
  • Ideal for all gardens of any shape, size or gradient.
  • Boards are quick, easy and cheap to maintain.
  • Shelter your garden from harsh winds and other extreme weather conditions.
  • Panels can be replaced easily if they become damaged or broken.

 

Venetian

 

One of the most attractive fencing panels on the market, Venetian fencing allows light and air to filter gently into your garden, simultaneously adding an element of privacy. The thin horizontal slats provide a smooth and stylish edge to any garden. The small gaps in between the slats adds a softer, unique edge. They’re ideal for those who value their privacy, but would still like their garden to receive a generous amount of sunlight.

 

Advantages:

 

  • Enables light and air to filter through.
  • They’re aesthetically pleasing.
  • Provide a generous amount of privacy and security.
  • Made from quality materials, ensuring durability and strength.

 

Trellis/Lattice Fencing

 

Trellis fencing will add character and style into your garden, providing an elegant alternative to traditional fencing. A trellis design would be perfect for gardens that contain climbing plants such as roses, honeysuckle or jasmine.

 

We also offer lattice trellis panelling, enhancing your garden even further whilst still offering privacy, functionality, practicality and style. Our trellis fencing has been designed to flawlessly complement any landscape design.

 

Advantages:

 

  • Can effortlessly divide up sections of your garden in style.
  • Can be used to create privacy partitions, limiting the view neighbours would get of your garden.
  • Could elegantly conceal unattractive, yet necessary aspects of your garden ( bins, sheds or compost heaps).
  • Able to support climbing plants. Plants could even be tied to the panel. For example, tomato plants would require this as they can grow quite tall.
  • You could top the trellis structure with climbing, thorny vines, adding more character, whilst deterring potential criminals. This will increase your home security.
  • They’re made of good quality, robust materials.

 

Palisade Fencing

 

More commonly known as picket fencing, palisade fencing has an iconic style. Its vertical panels offer a soft alternative to garden fencing. Its attractive, modest design will add a classic feel to any garden. However, palisade fencing doesn’t offer the security benefits that featherboard fencing would, for example.

 

Advantages:

 

  • Made from high quality materials.
  • Easy to install.
  • They’re low maintenance.
  • It’s stylish, yet functional.
  • Relatively inexpensive in comparison to larger wooden fence panels.

 

Woven

 

Woven fence panels are a beautiful alternative to traditional wooden fencing. The complex weaving allows just the right amount of light to filter through, whilst providing privacy. As the sun shines through, a wonderfully speckled pattern of both light and shade will spread across your garden.

 

Advantages:

 

  • The weaving of materials makes for a strong and robust fencing solution.
  • Woven fences are aesthetically pleasing, looking great on both sides.
  • Provides a high level of privacy.
  • Lets a generous amount of light in.
  • It provides added home security.
