A large privacy fence that’s 6 to 8 feet tall will completely block off the outside world. This is beneficial for safety and privacy, but it can make you feel a little lonesome. So, if you are the type of person who likes to communicate with neighbors or keep an eye on your surroundings, we recommend a small vertical privacy fence.

Small privacy fences are 3 or 4 feet tall. This is the ideal height for staying in touch with the neighborhood while still protecting your pets and property from wild animals. With the right design, a small fence will also increase your curb appeal and home value.

A small fence will keep your home secluded while also allowing neighbors to look at your wonderful backyard. There’s no better way to showcase all the hard work you put into your garden while protecting your property at the same time.


If you love the idea of a small privacy fence, give us a call! The next step is to choose a design, material, and size. The standard material for all vertical privacy fences is cypress wood because it is rot-resistant and naturally repels insects. Other popular options for wood fences are fir, spruce, redwood, pine, and cedar.

Remember that each type of wood has different qualities. For example, even though pinewood is more affordable and better-suited for areas with high humidity, it still has a shorter lifespan and is less eco-friendly. On the other hand, cedar is more expensive, but it is also more aesthetically pleasing, has a pleasant odor, and is easy to maintain.
