Modern Fences/Screens Ideas

Posted by Pat Donovan at March 15. 2005

Hi all...
I'm looking for some examples of modern fencing/screening options of a Medium sized yard. I found an old sunset book how to Build Fences Gates-1971 that has some fun ideas but I was wondering if anyone might have anymore. I would like it to provide some privacy, probably be 6' tall. Any ideas or pictures would be apperciated. Thanks.

PAT

there was a nice looking fence in an article in Dwell. it was horizontal boards butted together and looked similar to a hardwood floor turned up 90 dgrees.

I don't know how much privacy you're looking for, but here's a design I've been working on:



It's based on traditional latticework found on building facades in Japan, primarily in the Kyoto area.

Hi Pat,

We've combined sand blasted glass and regular painted wood fencing. You might like it, here's some pictures -

john,
how much $ would one spend on a screen like that?

ezekieltattoo,

The cost is US$1000 for fencing people (wood labor), US$400 for glass and US$15 for the paint. Size is 6 ft. high by 15 ft. wide.

I love the sandblasted glass fencing, and all the pics. I thought of two things to throw in, since you said medium sized yard: I saw pics of a bathroom with sandblasted plexiglass walls recently (can't remember where) and it looked just like sandblasted glass. Also, I really like the fence in the Ocean Park, CA house in Sept 04 Dwell, Smart Spartan, pg. 56. Anyone with a scanner who can help out? I like the way it looks, and it is cost-conscious in that the 2x4s are ripped diagonally to maintain strength, create texture/angle, and produce twice as much building material.

This is a picture of a sign, but I like this idea for a fence, too. It is metal posts with square metal mesh. The posts were allowed to rust for effect, but I suppose depending on the look that you were going for you could use different materials or treat the metal, etc.

Depending on your climate, you could have vines grow on this for more privacy.







If you save this image or open it in a new window it should be bigger with more detail available.
