Spaced Board fencing is primarily used in front or side yards where visibility is important. Spaced board fences mark boundaries, while their low, open design allows visibility through and over the fence. Designs with special topping or finishes make an attractive visual foreground with the house as the background.

The spaced board system consists of face boards, rails and posts.
