Different Types of Timber Fences
When it comes to timber fences, there are a few different options available to choose from depending on your needs and preferences. Here is a brief overview of some of the most popular types of timber fences:
1. Picket Fences
Picket fences are a classic choice for many homes as they provide a charming and quaint look. Picket fences can be made from various types of wood, but cedar is a popular option as it is naturally rot resistant. Picket fences are typically around 1 metre high and can be left natural or painted in any colour you desire.
2. Paling Fences
Paling fences are one of the most common types of timber fence seen in Australia. Paling fences are made up of tall vertical slats (pales) that are evenly spaced out. Paling fences can be made from a variety of woods, but treated pine is a popular choice as it is relatively inexpensive and easy to work with. Paling fences typically range in height from 1.5-2 metres.
3. Trellis Fences
Trellis fences are a great option if you are looking for something a bit different from the traditional fence designs. Trellis fences feature horizontal or diagonal slats that create an open lattice design. Trellis fences can be made from various types of wood, but cedar is a popular choice for its natural rot resistance and beautiful grain patterns. Trellis fences typically range in height from 1-2 metres.
4. Feature Fences
If you are looking to add a bit of extra character to your home, then a feature fence may be the way to go. Feature fences can be made from any type of wood and can be designed in a variety of ways to suit your personal taste. Common design elements for feature timber fences include arches, curves, and intricate patterns. Feature fences typically range in height from 1-2 metres.
5. Privacy Fences
Privacy fences are a great option if you are looking to create a more secluded outdoor space. Privacy fences are typically made from solid panels of wood that are placed close together to block out unwanted views (and nosy neighbours!). Privacy fences can be made from any type of wood, but cedar is a popular choice for its natural rot resistance and beautiful grain patterns. Privacy fences typically range in height from 1.5-2 metres.
6. Pool Fences
If you have a pool, then you will need to install a compliant pool fence to ensure the safety of your family and friends. Pool fences must be at least 1200mm high and must be made from non-climbable materials such as steel, aluminium, or glass. Timber can also be used for pool fencing, but it must be treated to resist rotting and termite damage.
7. Garden Fences
Garden fences are a great way to add some extra privacy and security to your garden. Garden fences can be made from any type of wood, but cedar is a popular choice for its natural rot resistance and beautiful grain patterns. Garden fences typically range in height from 0.5-1 metre.
