To make a fence look modern you have to think out of the box and to distance yourself from the usual designs that come to mind. For example, instead of placing the wood boards vertically try thinking horizontally. You can either create a very compact design for the fence or you can create chic patterns. If you prefer something more exotic, choose a wood that reflects that such as bamboo or some other type.
