While we Filipinos tend to like fences with pointy, jagged things at the end of them to dissuade suspicious folks from trying anything disagreeable, in the age of CCTVs, biometric locks, and large canines, allowing yourself to enjoy the look of your backyard or garage without razor wire getting in the way is definitely encouraged. Taking a page from our European friends, here are 15 cheap, effective and simple fence design ideas that also look pretty good!

These woven panels from Quercus UK Ltd. is actually an idea we should be using more with our tropical weather.

Wooden gates are classic, which is why many homeowners in the Philippines prefer to use them for their houses.

Contrasting the wood with an earthy yellow tone for the walls, which is enhanced by sections of natural stone or brick-finish wall cladding, makes for a stunning combination.
