Lattice fences are good choice for people who want privacy, or just an attractive fence that is easy to put up. What makes a fence a “lattice fence” is the pattern in which it is built, not the actual materials in the fences. Lattice consists of thin diagonal slats that are arranged in a crisscross pattern to form square holes with the points of the square at the top and bottom and the middle of the right and left sides. In most cases the slats are secured to each other and to the frame of the fence with staples. The first step to selecting lattice fences is determining the goal and overall appearance of the fence. If the homeowner wants complete privacy, he should select a large privacy fence. If he wants a decorative non-privacy fence, he should look at a picket design lattice fence. Both fence types create an elegant look, but each has a different purpose and presentation style.
There are many types of lattice fences available. These designs include many patterns and color combinations. Some include full lattice weaves throughout the fence, while others only have a lattice design at the top area. After all, lattice fences can add a homey feel to almost any yard, especially when it’s covered in vines or other climbing plants.
