You can choose a secure privacy fence for a completely obscured view into your backyard, or one that leaves you feeling a little less closed in. There are plenty of options to do just that! Let’s discuss the differences between full privacy and semi-privacy vinyl fencing. 

Full-Privacy Vinyl Fences

A full privacy fence provides a completely obstructed view of your property from the outside. In addition to blocking the view, there are some other qualities of a full-privacy vinyl fence:


  • Privacy boards are wider and installed edge-to-edge.
  • A full privacy fence blocks some of the noise from the outdoors.
  • There’s slightly less surface area to clean as there are no spaces between pickets.

Semi-Privacy Vinyl Fencing

Like the name suggests, semi-privacy fences offer significant privacy but don’t go as far as a full privacy fence. Here are some general traits of semi-private fencing:


  • Slender spaces between panels let some airflow and sunlight pass through the pickets.
  • Semi-private fencing pickets are narrower and spaced a few inches apart.
  • The fence provides partial privacy without having the feeling of being closed in.


Whether you choose a fence to give you a fully enclosed property or one with a bit more openness, both types of vinyl privacy fences are attractive, durable, long-lasting, and low-maintenance. They both provide benefits such as providing a barrier to keep your children and pets safely in your yard, giving your property added security and boosting your curb appeal.
