If you have a big yard either in the front or the back of the house, you must have a fence to secure a boundary for the house. There are many materials which are used to build these fences, the most common being wood (more specifically, wood of cedar trees).
The Western Red Cedar wood is also one such material which looks raw even if it is varnished well. You can have combinations of two types of cedars also to make the fence look unique yet attractive. You can have interesting designs like high, vertical, and crossed fences which give a very Victorian look to the surrounding. The cost is not very high too.
Horizontal fences give the house a very country look as these patterns are followed for equine fencing built around horse and cattle stables. Though these fences look very homely and simple, they can be painted white, with flowering creepers growing on them. Painting these fences increases its durability and keeps them away from wearing.
