The general styles of fences permitted and prohibited are defined in (A) through (E) below:
   (A)   LANDSCAPE FENCES. These are lower fences of an open design allowing visibility through them. They utilize natural, unfinished wood and are designed to run along distances with the contours of the land. Common examples: wood split rail fences, board rail fences, picket and convex picket fences. Picket style fences made of iron, powder-coated aluminum, and vinyl will be considered. The pickets may be spaced no more than two inches apart.
   (B)   PRIVACY FENCES. These are generally higher fences of a closed design, limiting or preventing visibility through them. They are typically made of natural unfinished wood, but finished wood and vinyl fences will be considered. Designs include solid board fences, board-on-board fences and lattice fences.
   (C)   PATIO (GARDEN) WALLS. These are actually house wall extensions constructed as a free standing wall with matching material as the house. These walls are typically trimmed with a cap and a solid end.
   (D)   MULTIPLE FENCE STYLES. Using more than one style of fence in the same yard is generally not permitted. Exceptions may be considered by the City Commission for special circumstances.
   (E)   PROHIBITED FENCE TYPES. The following fences are not permitted: chain link, barbed wire, utility wire fences with metal posts, stockade fences (pointed wood picket privacy fence made from split untreated pine or other soft wood), and post and wire fences (fences with wood posts and rectangular mesh wire.)
