Fence Designs for your Backyard

Posted on Posted in House & Garden

Backyards, secured and private, and spacious are standard in Australian neighbourhoods. Australians use their backyards for all types of relaxation and recreation. Private means unable to be seen by prying eyes of passers-by and sticky-beak neighbours. There are many different styles of fencing from which to choose. Securing your backyard can be done without costing a fortune regardless of what material or design you choose. Listed below are a few options available for residential fencing and that will give you privacy and security at the same time.

Privacy Fences

These type of fences work as physical barriers between the outside world and your backyard. You need to check with your local council and your neighbour when planning height, cost and material. The usually acceptable height for backyard boundary fences is 1.8 metres. As well as being legally correct it’s also about the right height to obstruct visual and physical access. The front fence is a different matter altogether. You have a large range of designs and materials to consider that can create a personalised appearance. As there are no limits, you can even have a fence custom built to suit an individual taste. While most residential privacy fences come in wood, there are many other materials to be found as well. A popular alternative is metallic decorative strips that suit garden fencing.
