There are two types of pre-treated wood and Cedar wood that are most commonly utilized for wood fence here in North Texas. The two types of pre-treated woods are referred to as whitewoods (Pine and Spruce). Whitewoods are ACQ-(Alkaline Copper Quat) pressure treated to resist rot caused by termites, beetles and other organisms or insects; as well as to increase the life of the fence.
ACQ-Treated whitewood pine or spruce is rated in pounds per cubic foot chemical retention. This can be found on the label on the end of the wood. A .25 is rated for above ground use such as deck railings, decks and fences. The next level is .40 for ground contact use such as post and retainer wall boards. The highest is .60 for in-ground use such as buried foundations and piers under water.
Pine wood fences, not unlike other types of fences, create a visual and physical barrier between properties. They provide the owner with privacy and security. Pine wood fences not only serve these required purposes but also have an aesthetically pleasing appearance and can be incorporated into part of any landscaping design. Pine wood fences create a natural look no matter where it stands. Pine is in the whitewood family, commonly found throughout the United States and Canada. It is an easy wood to work with due to its soft grain. Pine wood fences come in several types and sizes and not only complement a yard but serve to keep pets within boundaries, or can even enhance a commercial entry. Pine is an affordable option for those who are on a tight budget, but still desire the privacy and security of a wood privacy fence. The average life expectancy of a pine wood fence is approximately 5-8 years.
Spruce wood fences, as with any wood privacy fence, not only bring instant beauty to your property, but provide much desired privacy and security. Since spruce is a whitewood, it is a very affordable option for those on a tight budget who desire a privacy fence. Like pine wood fences, spruce wood fences come in several types and sizes and complement your property, as well as serve to keep pets within their boundaries. Spruce, as well as pine, belongs to the whitewood family. Spruce wood, when used for fences appears white when first installed. Whitewoods readily accept stain or paint, but left untreated will weather to a silvery gray. The average life expectancy of a spruce wood fence is approximately 5-8 years.
Why choose cedar? Cedar wood has a golden color and is a very attractive natural wood. It has natural oils and acids in the wood that make it undesirable to most insects, including termites. Few outdoor scents smell as refreshing as fresh cedar, yet insects are repelled by its smell. Not only is a cedar wood fence resistant to insects naturally, it is long lasting, low-maintenance and is less likely to warp than the whitewood varieties. Cedar has approximately twice the stability of most commonly available whitewoods. If the cedar wood fence is left out without stain or paint, over time it will naturally weather to a silver gray. Cedar wood will last up to 20 years or more, even in harsh environments. Due to these attributes, cedar wood is increasing in its popularity for the choice of wood for fences. Cedar is also usually more expensive than the pressure-treated varieties. Although initially higher in cost than lower priced whitewood fences, the fact that a cedar wood fence will last up to two-three times longer and requires less maintenance makes it a better overall value.

One option for decorative fence is the picket fence. Although picket fences provide minimal privacy and security, a picket fence offers a boundary between your property and your neighbors, while allowing the beauty of your landscape to shine through. A picket fence is a symbol of middle-class suburban life: the middle-class neighborhood with a medium-sized house, the wife, the husband, the children, the dog, and the white-picket fence all bring visions of a peaceful, secure lifestyle. Picket fences bring character and charm to a home or business. If your goal is geared more toward eye-catching appeal and privacy is low on your priority list, a picket fence may meet your vision perfectly. A picket fence will bring charm and character to specific areas of your landscape as well, such as a flower bed or around small plants for protection against pets. A picket fence is low in height; they are easy to climb over and you can see through the boards. These boards are referred to as "pickets". The style is characterized by short, tapered or pointed on the top, evenly spaced vertical boards or pickets, usually painted white. The picket fence was more common in the United States as little as 30 years ago; and dates back as far as the Colonial era. They are still fairly popular in the Midwest and Northeastern regions of the U.S. Due to harsh weather conditions and continual replacement of the pickets, some property owners are opting to choose Aluminum picket fences.
The proper fence design can be as important of your landscape itself. Fences can be modified to compliment any landscape design by transforming an ordinary fence into a work of art. Fence designs can compliment a garden or transform a backyard by providing depth and texture the typical fence cannot. There are solid or close boarded fence panels. They provide security and privacy. But when they are combined with interwoven fencing, it literally transforms the look and feel of the area it surrounds either by adding a pattern or simply complimenting the rustic look you desire.
