shadowbox fence, privacy?
My house is set 50ft back, all the rest of my neighbors are 100ft back. When I sit on my back deck, I feel like I'm on display for the block. Anyways,

It's time to plan for a fence. I like the simple-to-build shadowbox fence but I'm worried about visibility in between the slats?

I was recommended to use a 2-4" spacing, I'm wondering if this will provide full privacy?

Anyone have any opinions?

How are you dealing with the paranoia?? With a half overlap of boards, anyone would really have to be spying to see anything. And unless you are sitting in the nude, I really doubt that anyone is looking. If the shadowbox does not give yiou the privacy you seek, then install a full straight line fence.
