Outdoor Lattice Fences For Your Yard
A lattice fence is a decorative fence designed to accent a home or building. These fences are made from many types of material and available in custom sizes. Lattice fences are most often found in wood or vinyl. Lattice fences are good choice for people who want privacy, or just an attractive fences that are easy to put up. What makes a fence a “lattice fence” is the pattern in which it is built, not the actual materials in the fencing. Lattice consists of thin diagonal slats that are arranged in a crisscross pattern to form square holes with the points of the square at the top and bottom and the middle of the right and left sides. In most cases the slats are secured to each other and to the frame of the fence with staples. While it is easy to find lattice fences at most home improvement stores, it also possible for people with the time and inclination to make their own. Before they get started, they should cut the slats from a very thin piece of wood or wood lath using a miter saw. The ends need to be cut at angles since the wood will be arranged diagonally.
Once that’s done, all the builder has to do is staple the slats together at their meeting points, and add the square or rectangular frame. The most important thing is to take very precise measurements to avoid wasting wood. It can help to build the frame first and then fit in the pieces of lath. In addition to serving as the backbone of lattice fences, lattice can be used for garden trellises, gazebos, arbors, and railings.
