General fencing comes in basically 3 forms which is ranch style, panels and slat.
Out of these 3 fences the slat is by far the strongest and the panels are the weakest in our view. In high winds panels blow out and once blown out they are weakened.
Ranch style fences are where the boards run horizontally, they are an excellent step ladder for those people in your garden that should not be there.
Then there slat fencing which if installed properly will last a long time and hold out in most high winds.
