Fence vs hedge
If you do not have the space to plant a hedge, or think it requires too much upkeep, then having a fence is a great alternative – especially if you opt for a lap-panel or close-board (feather-edge) style, as these are tall and solid, and keep your garden really private. Of course, if you like the idea of having a well-maintained hedge, there’s no reason why you cannot have both: many homeowners like to install a fence in front of their hedge, which looks smart and also creates a tall, dense, attractive border around the outdoor space.
