Privacy Fences

The right backyard privacy fence combines functionality and style to create the perfect perimeter. Regardless of your personal taste, you can find a privacy fence that adds to your yard layout and adds security to your property.

Let’s take a look below at 9 backyard privacy fence ideas that work in almost any home environment.

1. Wood Panel Fence

Wood panel fences offer endless flexible options, including style variety, easy installation, customized features, and products that stay within your budget. They’re easy to stain and blend in well with almost any home environment. Wood panel fences are also easy to install. Taller wood panels provide adequate privacy and safety.

2. Pallet Wood Fence

A pallet wood fence offers an alternative to traditional vertical wood fences. The slats are horizontal and supported by vertical beams. Pallet fences are super easy to construct and made from materials that are accessible and economical. Some companies give away their pallets for free. The tops of the pallets can be used to house plants or other items.

3. Fence Extension

Are you irritated that your current stone or stucco wall is not tall enough? No problem. Just add a fence extension that adds height to your wall. Try ideas such as an extended fence post, lattice screen, screen panels, or slatted fence. Each of these options gives you more privacy without blocking the sun totally.

4. White Picket Fence

A white picket fence instantly adds charm and refinement to your yard. Fences are often made from robust quality material such as treated wood or vinyl, which is designed to withstand the outside elements. What truly separates white picket fences from other fences is the simplicity of the design. It is stylish, functional, and secure.

5. Spliced Wood Fence

When it comes to variety, few perimeter products rival a spliced wood fence. Popular options include board-on-board, split rail, paddock, spaced board, and picket. They provide a fully customized design where you can choose your height, wood gates, stains, and mounting options. Spliced wood fences work well in both traditional and modern settings.

6. Chain Link Fence

While a chain link fence does not provide much in the way of aesthetics, it does offer a highly secure option that stays well within a workable budget. Homeowners who want to make most of the mechanical design can border the fence using wood beams and posts. Another idea is to cover the fence with a partially transparent inlay.

7. Garden Trellis

For plant enthusiasts, a natural choice for fencing is a garden trellis. It is ideal for vines or sprawling plants that need lots of space. Trellises provide unmatched privacy while preventing plant growth across the yard. A trellis can stand alone or connect to an existing fence or other structure.

8. Rustic Split-Rail Fence

A rustic split-rail fence is one of the simplest and most classic designs. Originally built to corral horses, a rustic split-rail fence gives homeowners a natural design. The fence is reinforced by cedar wood, which is resistant to termites and outside elements. Due to their minimalistic construction, rustic split-rail fences go up quickly and with less effort than other fences.

9. Rattan or Bamboo Fence

A rattan or bamboo fence can transform any backyard into a private and exotic paradise. Natural bamboo fencing is typically made into panels or rolls. While bamboo can stand alone, it works best as a wall covering or extension. It adds a decorative element that accents almost any small area. Homeowners often use it to surround the patio or back porch.
