What to Consider When Choosing a Timber Fence Design

Timber fencing is very popular in Brisbane. It provides visual privacy and blocks sound while establishing a natural aesthetic, especially if it is stained and covered with a clear finish. However, there are numerous designs for timber fencing. Which one you choose will be dependent upon a number of factors. Here are some tips and tricks.

What Do You Want from Your Timber Fence?

There are many benefits to timber fencing and you will need to establish which benefits are the most important to you. These include: privacy, safety, security, screening an undesirable view, reducing noise pollution, containing pets or children, improving the overall aesthetics and providing a boundary for your property.

Once you have decided what you want, then it’s time to consider some other important factors.

Designs for Timber Fencing in Brisbane

Regulations

Most of you are subject to local regulations regarding fencing. These include the materials, height and the distance from the road or neighbouring properties.

Costs

How much will it cost to build and maintain the fence you want? You will have to refinish periodically to protect your timber.

Materials

We recommend CCA treated hardwood or pine, though there are other options. Hardware should be made of galvanised steel or stainless steel.

Neighbours

You should always make sure your neighbours are OK with what you are doing. In many cases, your neighbours will share the cost with you. If so, they should have the option to have as much input into the design and materials as you do.
