We decided to go with a vinyl privacy fence because of its durability and low maintenance (no power washing or restaining for us!). I didn't want feel like I was in a plastic fortress, so we did a modified picket version, which was pricier.

All told, 186 feet of 5 foot high fence, including two gates. Installation, permitting, dirt/material hall = $10K. I nearly cried when the estimate came in but it matches the pristine exterior of our home, and its the number one safeguard for our two dogs.

I also agree - keep the existing wood, but if you'd like something more ornate, I would stencil a simple, small pattern (think petite morrocan or damask) in a metallic. Bold coloured fabric choice for the seats. Viola!
