Garden fences provide more than just protection for your garden area. From demarcating your property from that of your neighbour’s to transforming your home exterior into a beautiful landscape, there’s a lot you can expect from your garden fence.

Here is a guide to the types of fencing and fencing materials you can consider for your garden fencing.

Types of Fencing and Fencing Materials

A wide range of fencing materials and designs are available for you to choose from. Your garden fence should complement your property exterior. It should help you to showcase your garden landscape in the best manner. Here are some of the most popular fencing options you can consider.


Wooden Screens are thick wooden slates that act as a barrier around your garden. They are easy to work with and look great with their earthy appeal.

Wooden board fences are the most popular choice for fencing. They enhance the aesthetic appeal of your garden while providing strong protection. You can choose vertical or horizontal strips of wood. Feather-edge panels and wooden posts combined with concrete are also other options you can consider.

Overlap fences use horizontal blocks of wood that are placed in an overlapping order. This type of fencing has been the traditional choice for homeowners in the UK for a very long time.

Picket fences are low-height fences that protect your garden while allowing a good display.

Bamboo fences are becoming increasingly popular as an eco-friendly choice for fence installation.

If you have a higher budget, you can also think of decorative wooden fencing such as wooden trellis fencing.


Metal fencing includes wire and chain-link railings and woven or welded nettings. This type of fencing was used years ago around country homes for mainly preventing animals or cattle from damaging gardens and home exteriors.


Plastic fencing has been in use in recent years. They can be customised to merge with your garden landscape. Although they are not an eco-friendly choice, durability and affordability are other merits you can consider for plastic fencing.
