2. Wood Fence Panel Design For Privacy or View

When choosing the optimum type of wood fence for your home you first need to decide how much Privacy (obstruction of view onto and off your property) or View you wish your fence to provide. The degree of privacy offered by your fence will obviously be affected by the height of the fence. However, the specific design of the fence panels is also a very important factor, since panels may be constructed so that the individual wooden fence boards have gaps between them, to increase visibility, or no gaps* between them to increase privacy.

City Fence offers you a range of different wood fence designs, presented here in order of increasing privacy:
