Types of garden fencing
There are many different types and styles of fencing available to suit everyone's individual needs. Below are the most popular types of fencing and their benefits.
Close Board Fencing
Close board fencing is sturdy enough to withstand strong winds due to its heavy duty framework. It is even more robust than Overlap fencing and provides privacy and security around the perimeter of a garden.
Overlap or Lap fencing gives privacy and security. It is fairly similar to close board panel fencing as it is encased in a heavy duty framework, however it tends to be slightly cheaper and therefore not quite as strong.
Trellis can be added to the top of fencing panels to create a higher fence without losing light into the garden. It can also be used in front of fencing or walls to allow for crawling/climbing plants. It adds a decorative feature to any fencing.
Picket or Palisade fencing is a simple but effective solution for a front or back garden where a fence is not required to provide privacy. However it still offers security.
Post fencing is usually used to mark out boundaries within a field or in the front garden. It is a simple fence and therefore doesn’t have a particularly dramatic impact on a garden.
