Fences + Gates Resources

Here’s a list of sources, newly compiled by the OHJ editors, for fencing: design, fabrication, and parts.

Many companies specialize in period-appropriate fences. Suppliers are located coast to coast; some ship nationally. You should, of course, look for your own local sources as well.


Wood fencing is a large category, often coming from companies that also make pergolas, arbors, gates, and gazebos.
