Lattice is also great for garden fence panels because of the small holes in the board. Different from other fences, lattice will prevent most animals from easily climbing into and destroying your garden. Many types of wood for decks bring together the most common material used in construction today for both flooring and fencing. Wood fence panels are similar to lattice work in that they have only small open areas. The difference between these materials is that the panel fencing has intricate designs throughout the board, rather than the crisscross shape of lattice.
