Fence Ideas

When you start researching ideas to build a redwood fence, whether you do so online or by reading gardening or home improvement magazines, you will see a myriad of options. With an array of styles and fencing materials to choose from, it’s not hard to see why fence ideas abound—and why choosing the best option for your home may take some time and thought.

After sifting through the research you have done, and the fence ideas you have gathered together, be sure to consider the material you want to work with. Mendocino redwood fencing is a particularly good choice, due to its natural characteristics and history of environmental stewardship. Redwood is naturally durable, yet lightweight and strong. It is also versatile enough to work for many different kinds of fence ideas. Mendocino redwood fences provide durability with an elegant touch; they are a great addition to any home.

Once you’ve decided to work with redwood, the options for your fence are practically limitless. Here are a few fence ideas to get you started.

  • There is something to be said for a classic design, and what could be more classically American than a white picket fence?  If you’re looking for a rustic twist on the original, leave the fence panels to allow the natural beauty of redwood to shine through.
  • For more privacy, a lattice top redwood fence can be beautifully elegant. Look for options in varying heights, including 4-foot and 6-foot. Always check your city or county ordinances before installation to ensure your fence design meets code before getting started.
  • Adding an arbor or trellis over a fence gate can add interest and a warm feel to your home. Arbors and trellises are also great for climbing vines or flowers to grow and thrive upon.
