    Residential Timber Fencing Options

    Residential timber fencing is a popular choice for homeowners who prefer a natural and rustic look for their property boundaries. Timber fences offer a timeless and classic aesthetic, and there are various options to consider when choosing a residential timber fence:

    Picket fences are renowned for their decorative and traditional appearance. They add a touch of elegance and charm to your property, making them a popular choice for framing gardens and enhancing curb appeal. They provide a clear boundary while allowing the beauty of your garden to shine through. Picket fences can be customized to match your specific style preferences. You can choose from various picket tip styles, such as Windsor, Tulip, Osborne, Regency, Half Round, or Point, to create a unique look.

    The timber paling fence excels in property boundary fencing, offering a heightened level of privacy. Compared to other timber fencing choices, it boasts greater height, ensuring enhanced seclusion while requiring minimal maintenance and being able to stand up against the elements. The natural look of timber makes it perfect for lining the backyard, serving as a complement to existing landscaping. You can choose from various woods to create something different, perfectly aligning with the established aesthetic of their homes.

    Timber slat fencing employs horizontal boards instead of the vertical ones seen in paling fences. Timber slat fences are highly customizable. You can select the type of wood, the width and spacing of the slats, and the height of the fence to control the level of privacy and match your style preferences. Timber slat fencing balances aesthetics, privacy, and openness, making it a versatile and visually appealing option for residential fencing.
