This is a home and lifestyle guest post by Alison with DIY Privacy fence ideas.
There are numerous low-cost privacy fences that use sustainably made, scavenged, or recyclable materials to maintain your dogs in and predators out, prevent your backyard crops from foraging wildlife, start creating a border around your whole property line, clearly delineate zones inside of your land, or create a quiet corner away from the prying eyes of your neighbors.
A few of these fence techniques are centuries old and mostly forgotten, but they demonstrate that if you have an excess of anything in your region – whether it is wood, rocks, or bushes – you can make a practical and attractive fence.
If you are a handyman, you will love to construct these fences, but if you don’t like to do things on your own, it is always a better option to call a wood fence specialist.
Here you will find a list of interesting DIY privacy fence ideas that you can implement in your backyard. So, let’s start!
- Pallet fence
- Rail Fence
- Brush Fence
- Modernistic Wooden Fence
- Wattle fence
- Recycled House Shutter Screening Fence
A pallet fence is something we called a basic low-cost fencing solution. It looks so adorable, that you won’t resist having one in your garden or backyard.
The construction is straightforward: pallets are stacked one on top of the other, having T-posts placed between the pallet boards and hammered into the surface to maintain the fence solid and erect. Nails are used to fasten the pallets when they are installed.
The end product is a sturdy and attractive fence that does not appear jumbled up like many alternative pallet fence designs. Apply a layer of color to make it seem even better. Alternatively, for a wonderful vertical garden idea, consider growing herbs or flowers.
The rail fence is still a popular fence design, and we love it. If you want a pastoral look, a rail fence is a great option, and it’s so easy to install that you won’t believe us.
The rails were placed in a zigzag manner to make them strong and self-supporting. Split rail fencing constructed in this manner is simple to erect and dismantle as needed.
If you want to get a more modern look on your DIY privacy fence, put the rails into the slots by drilling all the way through the wooden posts. To make the container more secure, add some metal mesh.
If you want to have an old-time look at the fence in your property, a brush fencing solution is ideal for you. Brush fences were constructed by piling cleared brushwood – tiny branches or twiggy plants – until a structure several feet tall and broad was formed.
Galvanized steel posts make up the structure, which is held together by bundles of brush put vertically across a wire to retain its form. The top of the fence is completed with a rounded brushwood crown that spans the length of it.
Modernistic Wooden Fence
We can’t get enough of the design since it’s so sleek and intriguing. Research at how the wooden slats are positioned with a teeny-tiny gap between them. They have the appearance of a contemporary building’s inside, with wooden room dividers. What an eye-catching addition to a garden, greenhouse, or zen garden!
This is an amazing way to have more privacy, and also a modern look at your garden and backyard.
This technique for DIY privacy fences is used for almost 6000 years, and it’s so simple that everyone can build fencing like this. Wattle fence is made out of 100% wood with no nails or usage of any other material.
For the posts of a wattle fence, you’ll need bits of older, thicker wood. Each and every one to 2 feet off is hammered into the earth to depths of a foot. If you put them close together, your final product will be more secure.

This DIY privacy fence idea is so creative, that you will love it so much. For the posts of a wattle fence, you’ll need bits of older, thicker wood. Each and every one to 2 feet off is hammered into the earth to depths of a foot. The sturdier your completed fencing will be, the closer they are together.
I hope that we are helped you to choose which is the best possible fencing solution for your garden or backyard.
