You might assume that the only option for fencing with the purpose of privacy is a tall plain wooden fence. That is one option, but there are more styles than that! A shadowbox style wood fence gives the same privacy, but allows for more air circulation. Similarly, a basket weave style gives your fence a unique design element to add to the aesthetic of your backyard. You could also choose a horizontal wood fence design, which gives your fence a more contemporary look, but still offers privacy. Another option is the picture-frame style fence. It gives a classic look, which looks great for both you and your neighbor. If you just want something to match the look of your home, consider scalloped fencing. It fancies up the look of a traditional wooden privacy fence with a simple curved design at the top.

Those are just the wooden fence options! You could go with vinyl fencing, ornamental fencing, bamboo fencing, or even composite fencing, which all have just as many varieties of styles. These are also all low maintenance materials for fencing. If you have the time and some basic knowledge, your new fence could be a do it yourself project. If not, you will want to hire a professional for your fence construction. Whatever you decide for your fence in St. Louis, you need to find a fence company who will work with your needs and budget in mind.
