This fence was built using the regular green pressure treated lumber. What makes this fence unique is the pattern of the boards. It’s not a pattern that’s seen all that often around London but it offers great privacy. Instead of off setting the boards on both sides of the fence it only has boards on one side. But then we add an offset board over the top to give it a shadow box look.
We also had to box out the fence around a large tree. A piece of advice is to always remember to give the tree plenty of space to grow. Too many times we’ve seen people build a fence within a couple of inches of a tree and within a year or two the tree is starting to push against the fence. So the key to remember when building around a tree is to leave lots of space.
