Acting almost like a gazebo or pergola, this small fence provides the perfect amount of privacy for this little backyard living space.
Number 16 – Repurposed Pallets #2
A totally different take on the repurposed pallets look, this quaint little fence appears to offer little privacy at first glance. However, when those plants grow in between the boards, they will fill the space and offer privacy along with a beautiful flourishing garden. This fence isn’t for everyone, but it is a great look to draw inspiration from!
Number 17 – Carved Wood & Concrete Combo
What may at first sound like an odd combination comes together perfectly in this little patio backyard. A carved wooden fence paired together with a decorated concrete wall come together well and complete this at-home outdoor oasis. Though this combination may not be possible in many homes, there are many other ways you can incorporate fence design and material combinations that work for you.
Number 18 – The Sound Wall
Now, who said sound walls couldn’t be beautiful? Sometimes, you may want or even need a sound wall to protect part of your property. Sound walls offer tons of privacy but are often not a homeowner’s first choice. Sound walls often look bland and boring. Done right, however, they can actually make a property or a backyard look even better!

Though many DIY projects like this one cannot provide the level of privacy a permanent fence can, they are a great choice for those who have a small space to cover or just enjoy hands-on DIY projects. These screens can also be placed in addition to permanent fencing, as they are also a decorative piece.
Number 20 – Decorated Dark Wood
If you prefer the look of a simple fence or already have a simple fence installed in your yard but want to add a bit of colour or character, why not add a few decorations? These red butterflies bring this dark wood fence to life and add the perfect splash of colour without becoming overwhelming.
