After deciding what the structure will look like you must decide what to attach to it for added comfort as there are many options available to you. You could simply attach drapes or curtains in the directly to the wood or go the traditional way and install curtain rods of some sort to pull them back when you want. I cannot stress enough the the type of fabric used here must be one that will do well in the outdoors. And yes they do make outdoor curtains! Also you could attach an automated cover to the top that closes at the push of a button to allow sun when you want it and shade when you don't.
If your fence is being used to enclose a pool areas you will want to check into that specifically. Even if you do not have any restrictions with a yard fence a fence surrounding a pool is completely different and should be asked about specifically. Installing a pool fence that does not meet your local or state laws can be costly if it has to be removed and a new one reinstalled all because the wrong material was used to enclose the pool.
Picket-style fence. This type of fencing provides quaint charm most suitable for cottage-style homes and those with landscape designs leaning towards English garden themes. Picket-style fencing also comes in a variety of types of which the most popular are dog-ear spaced picket, French gothic spaced picket, and the pointed top spaced picket.
Like many gardeners, you may be asking yourself, what is the difference between an arbor and a pergola? While there isn't a clear consensus on this, generally an arbor is a smaller structure with an arched top, usually standing 6 1/2 to 9 feet tall at the peak. Arbors are often placed over walkways or a gate in a fence. A pergola, on the other hand, has a flat top that is directly perpendicular to the straight sides it rests on. Pergolas can range in size from small enough to just cover a walkway to large enough to span a deck or patio area.
