Dog Ear Wood Fence

A dog ear wood fence refers to a style of wooden fencing that features fence boards with the top corners cut at a 45-degree angle, giving the appearance of a “dog ear” shape. This design detail is applied to each of the fence boards, creating a uniform look along the top of the fence. Dog ear fences are popular for their simplicity and traditional appearance, making them a common choice for both privacy and decorative fencing.

The dog ear cut not only adds an aesthetic appeal but also helps in shedding water off the top of the fence, potentially prolonging the life of the wood.

This type of fence can be constructed using various types of wood, including cedar, pine, and redwood, depending on the desired look and durability requirements.

Board-On-Board Wood Fence

Looking to take your curb appeal to the next level? A Board-On-Board Fence from Picket Ridge Fencing will do just that. 

Board-On-Board wood fences are constructed with an overlap of fence pickets which adds to the structural integrity of the fence.

This custom wood fence design can also be modified from a post and picket style to the addition of top and bottom trim that gives it a fortress appearance that is sure to increase the value of your property.

Wood Shadowbox Fence

Our wood shadowbox-style fence is a popular upgrade. Its appearance is “Neighbor-Friendly” because the fence looks the same from both sides. With a shadowbox wood fence, both sides have a finished look.

Shadowbox Fences let air move freely through the boards allowing for a nice breeze in the backyard. This fence style also helps to extend the life of your fence by removing the constant pressure of wind against a solid structure. This has made Shadowbox a popular fence choice in the Michiana area due to the heavy winds that often affect Indiana and Michigan communities.

They can also ensure privacy with the right construction. Overall, horizontal fences are an excellent choice for anyone seeking a stylish and functional fencing option.


Best Wood Fence Choices


The type of wood used to construct the fence is an important thing to consider when you get a wood fence. You have several wood choices, and each wood choice has its own unique benefits.

Cedar has natural tannins, making it resistant to insects, rot, and decay. It is also an all-natural building material, making it safe for family and pets.

Pine is also a popular fence choice because it is economical and a sustainable resource. Ask more about the types of wood we carry when you call for your consultation. You can also get an instant fence estimate online.


With the various wood material options and styles available, you could leave your fence to age naturally and develop its own patina. However, staining and sealing (or painting) your wood fence is a great upgrade that adds life to your fence while enhancing the beauty.

Rave Reviews & Testimonials


We Stain & Seal Fences!


Did you know that organic means that something IS or WAS a living organism? While most of us may relate this to the produce section at the grocery store. It’s also an important fact about wood fencing.

Because wood fencing is sourced from living trees, it is considered to be organic by definition. However, once those trees are cut and planed into beautiful wood pickets, structural beams, wood trim, and wood rails, it is no longer living. Which means that the wood has immediately started to deteriorate and nature is working hard to recycle your wood fence back into Earth. The process of decay is accelerated by weather (wind, rain, ice, UV exposure, etc.), insects, and plant growth.  

This is why Picket Ridge Fencing offers staining services. Our stain and seal process allows your family to enjoy your fence longer and helps to add a depth of beauty to your wood fence. We offer a variety of stain color options that will accent your home’s curb appeal while giving your fence added protection from the elements.
