A Homeowner’s Guide To Fencing Solutions

Homeowners face loads of choices when they’re renovating their property: from interior design trends to incorporate through to what amenities to add, there’s a lot to consider.

One major factor that you need to take into account when you’re upgrading your garden and the exterior of your property is which kind of fence to use.

DS Fencing, the Queenstown local fencing experts, understand how challenging it can be to select the right fencing solution for your property. That’s why we’ve put together a guide for homeowners on the various types of fence we offer, and how they can transform your property into your dream home.

All the following images are previous work by the DS Fencing team in the Queenstown area from the last 18 months.

Post And Wire Fences

The most basic fence that we offer, post and wire fences are literally just posts with wires running in between to define your property or boundary line. They’re ideal for anyone who wants uncompromised views.

Pine Paling Fences

The standard go-to in residential fencing! Strong, secure and versatile! There are many different options available for pine paling fences, including height, capping, and gaps between palings, check out some more of our pine paling work here.

Post And Rail Fences

The classic Kiwi fence, post and rail fences give your home a smart appearance. They’re perfect for small gardens and tidy homes in friendly neighbourhoods, as well as larger sections. We offer our post and rail fences in pine and macrocarpa, so you can find the material that fits in with your home’s aesthetic. You can choose between one, two or three rails (or even more!), and you can always add wiring if you need additional security or want to keep your precious pets from escaping.

Trellis And Screens

If privacy is your main concern, then a trellis or a screen could be the perfect solution for your home. These elegant solutions allow you to hide your property, while still letting light in so that your garden is always sunny and bright.Trellis and screens are also the perfect solution for hiding your bins or sectioning off different areas.


For a durable fencing solution that will last a lifetime and look beautiful at the same time, ColourPanel is ideal. These metal fences are the same colour on each side, and as such, they look chic and stylish. Metal is more robust than wood, so these solutions will continue to look fantastic for many years.

Custom Fencing

Experienced Queenstown fencing providers, like us, can offer you custom fences that meet your exact specifications. You can choose the materials, style, shape and measurements that you want so that your new fence will look as you imagined it would, and fits in with your style. We can also help with the design and can offer our expert advise and ideas to come up with a perfect solution.

SmartWall Fencing

If you want style, elegance and strength, then a SmartWall fence is for you! This really is the premium fence, and though slightly more expensive, the results are immaculate. Using aluminium framing, these fences will never warp or bow in the Otago climate. Inside the framing we use cross-laminated tongue and groove style dressed pine (or macrocarps) palings, meaning these won’t shrink and reveal gaps like many pine fences.

Ballustrade/Pool Fencing

Whether it’s to fence off a pool, or for fall restraining, or simply because you like it, our balustrade and pool fences do the job! They comply with the PS1 standards, and so are the strong, safe and durable Queenstown fencing solution.

We source all of our Ballustrade, ColouPanel and SmartWall from BoundaryLine.

Always Work With The Professionals

Once you’ve chosen the ideal Queenstown fencing solution for your home, you need to work with the professionals to choose the right product and have it installed to the highest possible standards. If you try to install it yourself or work with a poor quality fencing company, then you won’t achieve the outcome that you desire. Luckily, DS Fencing are here to help any homeowners in the Queenstown area to find their perfect fencing solution. We’ll design, supply, and install it for you so that the result is just as you pictured it.
