Western Red Cedar fence is a popular choice for backyard fencing for a few reasons. 1), it is more resilient to pests/bugs than many other woods, thanks to its natural oils. 2), it has a straighter grain than many woods, which means it is less likely to warp and bend. 3), It is durable, and will often last 20-25 years without stain. This particular fence fits perfectly with the landscaping and property design. It is a beautiful accent, and provides great privacy as well!
