WhAt type of glass panels were used? How thick we're they? - I am looking tomdo alternate panels in glass. I think something like this would make the privacy fencs less solid looking and let in some light as it will be close to the house.

Are the panels tempered glass or acrylic panels??? How thick are they??? I've used Acrylite panels (from Tap Plastic) for some outdoor small art projects, but not sure if using them for a fence gate (our next project) is a good idea. Acrylic doesn't weather over the years like I assume glass would. Advice??

I know you wrote this a year ago, Emily, but I think that most acrylic has serious UV inhibitors in it now...should work fairly well.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Landscapes Make a Privacy Statement
Opaque panels look like glass, but I suspect they are some kind of unbreakable material. By slightly spacing each horizontal panel, the designer created an interesting see-through effect. This detail pairs beautifully with the dark-stained wood posts and more traditional fencing at the left.
Not so simple to install yourself, these glass panels allow light into the garden yet maintain neutral colors on the boundaries. The timber posts holding the panels allow the hardness of the glass to link with the adjacent timber fencing.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Choose the Right Fence
Block a Street ViewWhen your home is on a busy street, creating a peaceful backyard space begins with the right fence. If you want to allow some light in, pick a fence with small gaps between boards (or even a lattice-like design) and layer lush plantings on both sides to provide additional privacy. Or try a frosted glass design, as shown here. As with privacy fencing, it can be helpful to test out the fence height you are considering before you commit.
3. A mixed-materials fence. This glass, steel and wood fence incorporates three materials into a unified design. Architect Tim Cuppett says that the key element in bringing different materials together is that they “all reflect the same pattern and rhythm.”
