Need a new fence for your yard or patio? If you want a true privacy, choose a fence with little to no space between boards. A closely spaced lattice can be nearly as private as a solid material when combined with the lush foliage of climbing plants. The height will depend on the slope of your yard and your neighbor’s yard, the position of your seating areas and any applicable local building codes. We decided to gather up 45 Delightfully Different Garden Walls and Fences. Enjoy the ride and at the end, be sure to give us a hint about which home you like best.
A wood fence is a versatile choice, offering picket pageantry and modern styling. Outdoor stone surrounds are nothing new, but a fence created from piles of stone corralled with metal baskets called gabions — feels sculptural and industrial. When you need to block strong breezes but don’t want to lose the light — or a grand view— the best option is glass, as shown on this stunning rooftop patio. If blocking a view is not an issue, any privacy fence with few to no gaps between boards will work well. For height keep in mind that if you primarily need to keep the wind out of a seating area, the fence can be a few feet lower than around an area where people will be standing, such as around the grill.
