Delimiting the space of the property, securing access, protecting from outside eyes… there are many reasons to fence off your garden. So you will have understood, choosing a fence for your garden will depend on several factors. That said, given the diversity of fences and materials used, making the right choice is a somewhat tricky business. That’s why you need to clearly define your needs beforehand, because each type of fence corresponds to a particular use. To help you see things more clearly, we suggest you take a look at our mini guide to garden fence types.
Wooden fences: the timeless!
According to Daniel Moquet, wooden fences have an undeniable charm and bring a nice touch of authenticity. Its natural appearance allows it to blend well with all styles of gardens, whether modern or rather traditional. Moreover, wood is a durable, resistant and environmentally friendly material, which gives the fence an unfailing solidity. Moreover, when choosing a wooden garden fence, you will have the choice between several solutions, such as woven panel, claustra, pine fence or solid wood fence.
Thin gabion fence
Aesthetic and robust, the thin gabion fence is an excellent alternative to wire or concrete fences. Depending on the height you choose, this type of fencing also has good hiding power to protect you from outside view, in addition to blending in well with the natural landscape.
Solid wrought iron fence
The solid wrought iron fence combines elegance and durability. Indeed, few materials are as rigid or resistant as wrought iron, as long as you take care of it, especially by maintaining it to prevent rust.
Rigid blackout wood mesh
The rigid wire mesh fence is completed by the installation of blackout slats which, as their name suggests, act as privacy screens that adapt to the rigid wire mesh to make it more or less opaque. These slats are made of different materials, which makes their characteristics, aesthetics and price vary: wood, PVC or aluminium. Wood being the most aesthetic choice.
In an openwork palisade, the wood is spaced out to let the light through. The palisade can also be furnished with climbing plants that embellish the space and offer a pleasant occultation.
Aluminium privacy fence
Unlike iron, aluminium does not rust. This is the first advantage of choosing an aluminum privacy fence. This material is also very resistant to various hazards and requires little maintenance. Generally, this type of fence is chosen as an alternative to full screening and can be available in several colours, giving the user good options in terms of customisation.
