There are many different styles that wood fences can take, including:
Split Rail – Inexpensive and offering a rustic appeal, split rail fences are often used as a way to note property lines.
Post & Rail – This adaptation of the more rustic split rail design is most often used in agricultural settings.
Picket – Low on privacy but high on aesthetic appeal, picket fences are regularly used for decorative purposes.
Privacy – A stockade style can be used for security and privacy purposes.
