If the privacy and security benefits of a wood privacy fence appeal to you, but you’re looking for a more contemporary and modern look, a horizontal wood fence might be the right fit for your home.
We typically use cedar wood when creating our horizontal fences because cedar wood is renowned for its durability and it’s easily customizable to suit any style you’re looking for. Take a look at some of our popular horizontal cedar fence styles below:
We’re able to create a horizontal wood fence with small gaps to allow light to shine through.
Or, on the other side of the spectrum we can set each plank tightly against the other to create complete privacy.
You can further customize your horizontal picket fence by adding a wood stain. A wood stain not only preserves the health of the wood, but it can also be used to match or complement the exterior of your home.
A horizontal wood fence can be further customized by adding metal posts. Horizontal fences with metal posts have increased strength and stability, and the metal posts bring an ultra-contemporary feel to your backyard. The metal posts can stay in their natural silver color, or can be painted any of an array of colors.
One of the more unique horizontal wood fence styles is a cedar horizontal shadowbox fence. The shadow boxes bring additional depth to your fence and allow light to shine through to keep your backyard bright.
Do you want your fence to look equally as great on the interior and the exterior of your backyard? If so, a horizontal double–sided style might be the best fit for your home.
Give your horizontal cedar fence an upgrade by adding a limestone base, slats on top or even both! These added colors and textures will give you the best fence in the neighborhood.

What Wood To Use For Horizontal Fence?
Are you trying to decide on the type of wood to use for your horizontal fence? These options combine both beauty and durability.
Redwood: Consider Redwood for your next horizontal fence. While it’s pricier than other softwoods, its natural resistance to rot and decay and impressive strength (23% stronger than cedar) make it well worth the investment. On top of that, its stunning red color adds a touch of beauty to any fencing project.
Cedar: Looking for a budget-friendly option for your wood fence? Look no further than cedar. It is a close-grained softwood known for its durability and resistance to rot, and it is also more affordable than redwood. With cedar, you can have a stylish and long-lasting fence at a reasonable price.
Pine: Pine is an affordable and durable option that lasts up to 15 years. Watch as your pine fence beautifully weathers over time, creating a charming, natural aesthetic.
