Privacy Wood Fence

This classic style of wood fencing includes varieties such as board-on-board and privacy stockade. Both styles are available with options to style the top of the fence in either dog-ear or flat top. The size of the boards can be adjusted as well between 4" or 6" wide.

Wood Fencing

Shadowbox Wood Fence

Shadowbox wood fencing is a style that looks great from either side you're on with boards that alternate on either side of the fence and is available in horizontal or vertical designs. This style is perfect for neighbors who are splitting the cost of the fence since both sides have the same great look.

Picket Wood Fence

Wood picket fencing is the "American Dream" fence many imagine with a cozy neighborhood home. It is a versatile style that can be used for front yards, gardens or any area you wish. Wood picket fencing can be painted or stained to the color of your choosing or even left natural, just as installed.

Stacked Horizontal Wood Fence

Stacked horizontal wood fencing made with Ipe wood is so dense that it would even be hard to burn. Harvested from managed Brazilian forests, this wood makes a tough-as-nails fence that can last over 75 years. We like stacked horizontal fences best with properties of more modern designs.

Strong Wood Rails

Did you know that there are different grades and types of wood? Our professional-grade wood rails are what separates us from many of our competitors. Our rails are of a higher grade than other options we see across the Sarasota, Florida region. This is an important difference, because the horizontal rails fail frequently on lower-quality wood fences. We see it all the time!

People sitting on the top of the fence, climbing the fence, leaning heavy objects against the fence, or branches falling onto the top of the fence can all easily damage a low-quality wood fence rail! Rot, splitting, warping ... these are all much more likely and much more severe with lower quality wood materials. Our wood fences are built to last and a key reason our wood fences last so long and look like new - is because of the higher quality wood fencing materials we install for our residential and our commercial clients.
