Thank you. It sounds like your contractor was referring to Hardie Backer Board which is used for tiling applications. This material is meant for siding. Hardie has standard siding sizes up to 12" or in this case we bought Hardie Panel (4x8 sheets) and ripped them into 2ft strips and then lapped them. Hardie Siding can be used for fencing but it needs to be well supported as it is only 1/4" thick.

This is a custom milled lapped redwood siding. This is not a rain screen application.

The grass and landscaping are photoshopped in this photo since it was not complete at the time. The path and everything else are untouched.
