When it comes to fences, probably the most default material used is wood. And why shouldn’t it be wood? In the old days, when concrete and iron fences were not yet even invented or made, wooden fences were very popular. During the early pioneer days of America, one of the easiest materials to construct fences from was wood that came from trees that were cut. You can easily cut off and shape each panel and post with care, then bury the posts properly so that they won’t easily be pushed down by stray animals, like dogs, cows, and other animals. Wooden fences remain popular today because it’s a symbol of the rural countryside. White wooden fences are a symbol of the good old rural lifestyle.
If you’re planning on getting a wooden fence for your countryside home or if you’re just feeling nostalgic and you want to add a wooden fence to complete your rural-designed house, then you’re more than welcome to do so. Wooden fences are cheaper compared to other fencing materials, but there is a big catch though. Wood is also the least durable since it will rot under the sun, the rain, and especially in the snow in due time. Also, wooden fences are the favorite targets of termites. Since it is stuck to the ground, these fences will be easily swarmed by hungry termites and if not controlled properly, these insects will probably reach your house too!
