A fence is one of the hardest working elements of a home. It must be functional – defining spaces, creating privacy, providing shelter and shade. It must be durable – resisting insects and decay while at the same time taking on whatever environmental conditions Mother Nature conjures up. It should also be a beautiful structure that adds to the visual appeal of any property.
Humboldt Redwood is the one building material that can exceed all three needs: function, durability and beauty.
Choosing the Right Style of Redwood Fence
Today, a fence isn’t just a flat, upright surface that differentiates one yard from the next. Style is a serious element that can make a fence one of the most beautiful structures in an entire yard. As you can see by the dozens of styles in our Redwood Fences For All Reasons booklet the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
Some of the most popular redwood fence styles are:
Other popular styles include post-and-rail for long boundaries, such as in agricultural applications, and louvered, which allow for privacy and airflow. More elaborate styles include basket weave and window box designs.
Whatever style you choose, Humboldt Redwood is available in the grade, dimension and length for the job. Not only is it an attractive wood, it’s also extremely easy to work with, which is one reason why redwood is a preferred choice for professional builders and contractors.
