What is Board on Board Fence?

Board on board fencing is constructed with an overlapping pattern of vertical slats where every other board is attached to an opposite side of the fence rails, creating a light break in the fence to where you get an extremely slight view of what’s on the other side, but only if you stand at an angle.  Another name for Board on Board fence is Shadowbox fence.


Board on Board Fencing – Sturdy and Secure

What makes this fence so strong and durable is the fact that Frederick Fence uses pressure-treated posts that are set in the ground at least 36 inches and filled with concrete, meaning the posts won’t give and will stay in place and survive the harshest of weather patterns.  For added privacy and a bit more noise reduction, you can even add decorative lattice work to the top of your fence, which also offers you even more visual appeal than the natural beauty of the wood we use.

If security is important to you, a board on board fence with a locked gate affords you the security you need. With board on board fence construction, your family members and pets can enjoy their time in the yard without having to worry about your little two legged and four legged loved ones roving off and strangers wandering into your yard.
