Since it is not suitable for privacy in the most conventional sense, it allows the wind to pass through to your property. Homeowners is often considered a better option to picket style fencing because it seems charming on both sides. This because the boards build an alternative to either side of the center rail. So you will not only see the front or back of the boards but both.
If you need to reduce gaps, boards can put close to each other, while still giving room for the wind to pass through.
During rainy or windy weather, however, the risk of post-failure of board-on-board is crucial. These can be solved by burying the posts deeply and attaching them securely. At least one-third of the total distance of a post should be hidden deep and then bolted in place with pavement or gravel.
