There is something classic about a simple wooden/timber fence. It takes one back to a time when living was simpler. Security was not as much of a priority as it is today, however there are still scenarios where wooden fencing is a good option. Various complexes have specific guidelines when it comes to fencing requirements and often these include a wooden type fence painted a certain colour.
Or, one may require a portion of your garden fenced off internally for animals.
Where a fence, in the case of a complex, is not a security requirement around your property, use of the good old, classic picket fence, may just do the trick!
