Privacy Fences Privacy fences primarily function as physical barriers between your backyard and the outside world. Many locales have ordinances that limit the maximum height. Generally speaking, however, ideal residential privacy fencing is around six feet high. That is usually sufficient to obstruct both visual and physical access by outsiders. As for frontage style, a vast assortment of privacy fence designs and colors are available from which to choose and create a personalized look. You may even have a fence custom-built to suit any preference or peculiar taste. Another option is online shopping to find attractive and distinctive wood fence designs to recreate. Also note that even though most residential privacy fences are offered in wooden fence designs, other formats may be found as well. Popular alternatives are vinyl and metallic decorative strips that work well for garden fence designs.
Without stain a cedar fence will turn gray over time. If it is desired to stain the wood the stain can be applied before or after the pickets are attached. Be sure to use a high quality, heavy-bodied, oil based stain. The first application is the most important. To apply the stain do not use a garden sprayer or a roller as the stain will only rest on the surface of the wood. This will result in a fence that needs to be re-stained year after year. It is better to use a short (2 inches or less) thick-bristled brush. Using aggressive brush strokes work the stain into the wood. This does take a little more labor the first time. The brush will insure that the stain penetrates into the cells of the wood. When done properly the first year the fence will not need to be re-stained for up to five years. When the fence needs to be re-stained use a common garden sprayer.
The style of the fence Privacy fences are typically constructed of solid panels and are a height at eye-level or higher. Semi-privacy fences usually have solid panels and maybe some lattice work at the top, or there is shadow box style where individual fence panels alternate on either side of the support boards. Decorative fences have pickets which help to keep children and pets safely inside the yard. The other option is to plant a natural, or living, fence. These can be created out of arborvitaes or some other tall hedge bush. They offer privacy as well as being good at absorbing sound.
