Privacy Fence Panels
What kind of fence is this? Privacy fence panels are an innovation for our modern age. Like the square-edged panels, these are effectively rectangular fence battens with a rebate between panels to provide a stylish shadow line. Our privacy fence panels have no gaps to guarantee you’ll have complete privacy from neighbouring gardens.
Good for… Overlooked gardens, noisy – or nosy – neighbours.
Also look for: Horizontal slats, stockade pickets, lattice designs, lapboard.
Open fence panels
What kind of fence is this? Open fence panels are made from Western Red Cedar, each with a gap size of 23mm between panels.
These panels provide a looser, more natural-looking boundary for your garden. They’re also a great choice if you wanted to create a cordoned off area for your bins, bikes or lean-to.
What’s more, climbing plants such as ivy or jasmine can be trained to grow on the slats like a trellis, creating a verdant aesthetic to your fencing.
Great for… Keen gardeners, as dividers in large gardens.
Also look for: Open pale, picket panels.
Horizon fence panels
What kind of fence panel is this? Horizon fence panels create the illusion of more space and so are a great choice for small or narrow gardens.
The boards on these fence panels gradually get wider, from the bottom to the top, giving the effect of a horizon in the distance. The gap size between each panel is 7mm to ensure maximum privacy.
Great for… Small gardens, unique gardens.
Top tip: For an even more contemporary finish, mix up the ordering of the different-width fence panels. Try using the largest pane for the middle and arrange the others around this.
