A fence on the left is a Close-board fence. You can't see what is behind it. How would you call in opposite the one on the right, Palisade, Picket fence, Drafty fence, See-through fence?

Thanks!

    I would not call it a picket fence, which I would reserve for something like this:

    For your fence, I would probably say it was "see-through", but "slatted" is another option. I have never come across "drafty fence"; I like it. :)

    The fences shown in the OP are both closed off along the top with a “cap”. The type on the right seems often to be called a capped picket fence.

    This is s classic picket fence style in the U.S. It's more decorative than functional.

    That fence seems more functional.
