Traditional fencing includes Overlap, Feather Edge, Picket and Closeboard. It is used for creating strong, practical garden boundaries – particularly with 6×6 fence panels for privacy and security.

Decorative fencing not only creates a boundary but offers an attractive frame for your garden. Beautiful backdrops for your flower beds and garden features, decorative fence panels include interesting constructions such as slatted, hit & miss and lattice fencing.

The names of the types of fencing are related to how they are constructed. Let’s take a closer look.

Overlap Fencing horizontal boards overlapping each other
available with a waney edge design or a more contemporary straight cut finish
offer privacy and security
the most economical fence panel construction

Featheredge Fencing overlapping vertical boards supported by horizontal battens on the reverse
each board is tapered with a thicker edge and a thinner edge
rigid build copes well with seasonal movement
look out for heavier duty featheredge with thicker boards and more supporting battens
offer privacy and security

Closeboard Fencing overlapping vertical boards supported by horizontal battens on the reverse
full perimeter frame for increased strength and security
usually have an extra supporting batten compared to featheredge or vertical
excellent for security and privacy

Q. How high can I build my fence?

A. According to Lawsons, fences constructed in back gardens should be no higher than two metres (around 6.5ft) with those placed in the front of a property to be no more than 1 metre tall.

However, those wishing to build a fence higher than two metres in the UK can apply for planning permission from their local authority.
