Traditional Wood
It’s hard to ignore the beauty and utility of a traditional wooden fence. Wood fencing is typically made of redwood or cedar, as these varieties stand up well against decay, naturally occurring oils, and wood-boring insects.However, as with any natural wood product, they require regular upkeep. Redwood and cedar have raised grains and an appearance that is architecturally unique. While they can be a bit pricey, these woods are easy to work with and make for an easy do-it-yourself project if you’re planning to not only choose your fencing medium, but also install it.

There are also other varieties of wood that are chemically treated to resist the elements. These options allow you to hold on to the integrity associated with natural wood, but they are less expensive than traditional redwood or cedar and are easy to paint upon installation. Similarly, even the chemically treated woods will require maintenance from time to time.
