Different Types Of Decorative Fencing For Your Yard

If you are trying to decide which type of fence is the best type for your property, and you're interested in a decorative one, you have a lot of choices available to you. The type of fencing you choose to go with should be one that adds the right look to your home and goes with its style. This article will provide you with information on the different fences commonly chosen for decorative purposes.

Shadowbox fencing: A shadowbox fence is generally a taller fence made of wood. It is often referred to as a "neighbor friendly" fence. This is due to the fact that it looks the same on both sides. The fence is made by alternating pieces of wood from one side to the other in a way that offers a great looking staggered effect. This fence offers decoration, as well as privacy, security and a way to fully enclose your property.

Rod Iron: Rod iron fences can be short, medium height or tall. They can come in many different styles with some of them having elaborate designs along the top. This type of fence can go with many styles, and it provides some security, but it doesn't offer much privacy.

Picket: A traditional picket fence is generally a bit shorter than many types of fences. This type of fence can be painted any color, but most people choose to go with the traditional white paint job. A short picket fence is great for decoration, but it isn't a type that's intended for privacy or security.

Wood post fence: A wood post fence is one often used to contain larger livestock. However, it can also be used as decorative fencing. This style of fencing goes especially well with a country style home. It serves virtually no functional purpose around a yard, except for adding a fantastic look to your landscaping.

Chain link with wooden slats: A chain link fence is one that serves many functions and can be used for decorative purposes. While a traditional chain link fence can be easily seen through, slats can be added to it provide privacy and extra security. These slats come in many colors and materials. This allows you to achieve the exact look you want. You can also install wood rolls as decoration for your chain link fence. 

Aluminum fencing: Aluminum fencing is a popular choice with those looking for decorative fencing. It can have the look of rod iron, or it can offer a bit of a softer look. Aluminum fencing can have a simple design, or it can have a lot of embellishments and intricate details to it. While aluminum fencing is great looking, it can also offer security when you have a tall fence installed.
