Whether your goal is security, keeping pets in or keeping other people’s pets out or you just want to improve the look of your home, a timber fence is a great choice for those wanting a more natural look. The versatility offered by timber fences is almost second to none and there are a range of solutions depending on what your needs are.
What Is The Purpose Of The Timber Fence?
If your primary concern is keeping others out and stopping prying eyes then a solid board fence might be the answer you are looking for. Using wider wood boards that are placed together with no space in between can give you the feeling of security and privacy without making your home look like a prison.
Maybe you have a beautiful garden and you want to show it off but still have a little protection from wandering pets and passers by that might wander a little too close. In this case a simple picket fence is probably the answer. A wide spacing between the panels lets others enjoy your hard work while giving you the space you want.
Adding Value To Your Property
A key factor that should always be considered is whether a fence will add value to your property. If you are adding a fence to an already existing property then it’s generally a good idea to select a style that suits your home. This goes for the material used as well. In Queensland we have an abundance of wood paneled homes that look great with a smaller wooden fence.
Making sure you have the right fence for your property can have a big impact on a potential buyer’s initial impression. While your need for security might be paramount to everything else it is still worth considering that people might be less receptive to a 6 foot solid panel fence. Having said this, it is a thought dependent on actually selling the property and if it’s your home the best answer is always what you want.
Wood fencing is also a fantastic option for large farm properties with livestock in the paddocks. Sturdy, solid wooden fencing works for this application in both security and cost effectiveness. The wood can be treated or left to age naturally which looks marvelous and adds character to the homestead. Additional deterrents for livestock such as electric wires can be added to a wood fence so you can have the look you want and provide a solid structure for the added security which can often be extremely flimsy.
The Right Look For Your Home
If you are considering a wooden fence the first thing you need to think about is what type of wood you would like to use. There are a range of options and all of them have their own characteristics and looks. If you are not too fussed with the natural grains that can make a wooden fence so unique then you can choose to paint it with a colour that suits your existing decor.
It is this versatility that makes wooden fencing so popular. The lower costs combined with an almost infinite range of finishing options means you can find the right look while still accomplishing the goal the fence was created for. Small, tall, secure or open, a timber fence is often the best choice for those looking for a warmer style of fence.
