Today’s fences are no longer just  boundary markers, they’re as much about style and innovation as they are about security and privacy. Here are a few of the more popular trends as we move into the mid 2020s.

Hybrid Fences

Hybrid fences are the best of two worlds. The basic idea is to use one material for the posts and framework, another for the fill. The Fallingbrook, for example, features a vinyl framework with cedar boards for the fill. It’s a great look that combines the durability of vinyl with the natural ambience of wood. Steel frames and vinyl or wood fills are also popular combinations, especially for horizontal fences.

Horizontal Fences

One of the hottest trends in fencing is the horizontal fence. Unlike traditional vertical fences, horizontal designs offer a fresh, contemporary look that can transform any yard. Here are a few variations that are particularly popular:

  • Ashton Wood: Ashton fences use cedar or pressure treated wood arranged in horizontal planks to create a warm, inviting appearance. The natural wood grain adds an organic touch, making it perfect for blending with garden landscapes. Unlike hybrids, these fences are all wood, and they’re among the least expensive fences in our product line.
  • Vinyl Wall: The Vinyl Wall is a hybrid horizontal fence that provides a clean, uniform look that’s easy to maintain. Vinyl is resistant to fading, warping, and insect damage, making it an excellent and durable choice. The black steel posts and frame add strength and simple, clean lines.
  • Garden Wall: The cedar in Garden Wall fences blends perfectly with landscaping and gardens . The steel posts and frame provides strength and the wood provides the naturalness and charm.

Glass Railings

For those seeking the ultimate in modern design, glass railings are a top choice. They provide a minimalist, unobtrusive barrier that offers clear views and a sense of openness. Ideal for decks, balconies, and pool areas, glass railings blend seamlessly with contemporary architecture and landscapes. The tempered glass used in these railings is highly durable and safe, providing a stylish option that doesn’t compromise on security.
