While its importance as an aspect of garden design is often neglected, fencing is an integral part of both the aesthetics and functionality of your garden. Garden fencing is likely to differ between the front and back of properties, with taller and more solid timber fencing usually being placed in the rear garden, while the front of the home typically features smaller sized and more attractive fencing. Fencing for the front of the home tends to feature a low height and large spaces between the wooden slats. Also, it is often coloured to enhance its ornamental effect.
Fencing in the back garden is frequently used for privacy and to maintain the boundaries of a garden, as well as to keep pets or other small animals or wildlife either in or out. Because of this, these styles of fences are around 6 feet high and use wooden slats with no spaces in between. Because of the added height, these fences generally have concrete footings laid in between each panel to provide strength and prevent the fence from blowing over or being ruined in high winds.
Garden fencing sections are generally constructed from wood. The posts in between the panels are made from either wood, stone, or concrete. Recently, fence panels have started to be made of heavily recycled and sustainable composite materials such as recycled bamboo.
