Wood Fencing is the most common property divider. There are many benefits to using wood as a privacy barrier. When you have decided to install a fence around your home, patio or yard, the first question that often comes to mind is what should the fence be made of.

There are a lot of different materials that are commonly used in the way of fences, each with its own benefits. Wood Fencing is great for privacy and customization, so if those are things that interest you about a fence, you may want to look into them. Alongside privacy, there are other reasons why wooden fences are an excellent choice for anyone.

Types of Wooden Fences

Redwood is well-loved in places where there are a lot of shifts in temperature and weather. They are highly resistant to weather damage and extreme temperatures, so you don’t have to worry about them warping in the sun or the rain. Redwood is also cost-effective thanks to its common nature. Redwood also secretes a natural oil that naturally repels pests and bugs, helping to promote the overall longevity of the fence. Finally, they are easy to clean and are safe for use with a wide range of commercial cleaners.

Cedar Wood

This type of wood is also remarkably durable and sturdy, making a fence that can outlast years of use without folding in the face of elements. It is similarly cost-effective like redwood fences.

Benefits of Wood Fence


Usually, a fence can be quite an expensive investment, but with wooden fences, it’s less of a concern. Wooden fences are much less expensive than some materials such as iron. While they don’t last as long as other fence, they will stay with you for many years if you take the time to install them correctly.

Easy to Stain

Changing the look of your home is easy when you have a wooden fence. This type of fence allows you to easily change the entire aesthetic of the structure just by staining the wood. Staining is a simple process that only takes a few days and will provide you with many years of enjoyment. Though wood is naturally resistant to any decay, staining it occasionally can also boost its resiliency and ensure that it lasts for as long as possible. It can also help to minimize the damage that might otherwise be taken on from the rays of the sun.

Environment Friendly

Wood is one of the most environmentally friendly materials. The wood that you choose can also be treated with environmentally friendly stabilizers as well as preservatives that can help to prevent damage due to termites or even swelling without worrying about hurting the groundwater or soil. Once you are done with your wooden fence or want to upgrade to a new one, it is a safe process to just take it apart and get rid of it without worrying about polluting the environment any further.


Alongside staining and painting, there are other visual appeals to using a wood fence as opposed to other ones. Wooden fences have a large variety of customization options that you can choose to decorate your space, so you can make it completely your own. Some of the most popular ways to customize a wooden fence include:

  • Width of the gate
  • Height of the fence
  • The changeability of panels, so you can trim them to the right height
  • Matching accessories including but not limited to wooden flower boxes

Wood fences are quite simple to install, especially as opposed to heavier metal fences. Because of this, you won’t have to worry about disruption to your daily life for a long period of time like you do when installing some other fences—and, the job gets done quicker with a wooden fence.
