Common Types of Timbers
Timbers exist as either softwood or hardwood. The softwood comes in different types, such as Deal, Pine, and Fir. In the UK, the commonly used softwood comes from the Pinus Sylvestris (redwood). On the other hand, hardwoods are widely used in building heavy structures, such as walls and floors. The hardwoods available in the UK include Oak, Beech, Ash, Walnut, etc. Softwoods are used to make light-load bearing structures, such as doors and window frames.
Pros and Cons of Timber Fencing
Here is a summary of the pros and cons of timber fencing.

Timber fence panels are lighter to handle and easy to install than metal or concrete options. If you want to redesign the look and feel of your garden, your fence will be part of the design process.
