A privacy fence is more than just a structure to keep your kids and pets close to home. A fence also helps keep overly attentive neighbors out of your yard. So what is the difference between a privacy fence and a regular fence?
Privacy and Regular Fence Definitions
According to Wikipedia.com, a fence is a "structure that encloses an area, typically outdoors, and is usually constructed from posts that are connected by boards, wire, rails or netting."
A privacy fence is a solid structure that separates two adjacent properties. The fence is typically between four to six feet high and does not have any holes or spacing between boards, thus providing privacy in your yard.
