Lattice fences are created with self-standing posts that do not require ground attachments or wood to hold them up. They are fashioned for flat surfaces and can be located either indoors or outdoors. Sections between posts are likely to be made up of one, two, or more panels that are 30" high x 20" wide.
Some vinyl Lattice Fences are 100% white cedar with tongue-and-groove handmade 1"x 4" white cedar boards. They appear identical on both the front and the back sides. Strength is an important hallmark of these vinyl fences, and for this purpose rails are slid through pre-routed posts.
Lattice vinyl fences are ideally used for an entrance, path, garden, or yard. They do not have tough materials or cause harm to animals as in the case of broken wire or wooden boards; hence, they are frequently chosen for enclosing horses, livestock, and play areas for children.
Lattice vinyl fences do not require painting or maintenance-associated replacement. They do not absorb moisture and therefore are not susceptible to rot, blistering, or corrosion. Vinyl lattice fences are cost-effective and safe alternatives to decrease the strain on lumber supply. The lattice vinyl fences are usually sold by the foot along with the posts. Usually, prices range from $5 to $30 per foot. Considering the many advantages, lattice vinyl fences are a popular choice at present.
The first image that comes to mind when discussing privacy fences is that of a high-rising, solid wood or stone wall. While that, in a very literal sense, is a definitive privacy fence, there are myriad options that should also be considered.
Materials that run the gamut from cloth to green-growing fencing, from lattice to bamboo, or from PVC to concrete provide viable privacy screen fence options. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, and applications for which some are suited while others are not. Many of the best privacy fence designs incorporate a combination of two or more options.
The first of these is the "green" screen fence. That buzzword may intimate either a growing, shrub or plant-based divider or an eco-friendly concept. In as many instances as possible, eco-friendly considerations should form a part of your decision-making. However, pure green-growing fences have the advantage of being almost maintenance free, and generally more economical to plant. However, long growing times may mean that your "fence" may not be truly private for a decade or so! In winter, all but evergreens will shed their foliage and leave you exposed to the outside world.
Eco-green fences are a bit more nebulous, with some claiming that only a wood fence is "green," while others insist that the materials used must be recycled and reclaimed, as well as requiring sustainable installation processes. The reality is that even PVC fencing can claim to be "green," due to its very low maintenance regimen, the dearth of painting required, and the low demand for equipment for installation.
Bamboo is one of the "green material" choices that has exploded in popularity recently.
Bamboo is used for dinnerware, window shades, flooring, walls, fences even clothing. In the proper climate and environment, it is durable, and offers a distinctive natural look. However, simple bamboo pole construction is not as sturdy as is needed in extreme environment conditions, and requires special care in design and installation.
Shade cloths and semi-transparent natural cloth or manufactured materials are excellent choices for patio dividers and for toppers on fence segments.
