I have both: On a forest green run across the bottom of my garden I have painted the concrete posts with the same and they have become virtually invisable.
On the cedar run, down the side of the garden I have left the wood in its natural tananised stain, looks equally attractive.

Lap panels are cheap and cheerful... but attractive? good looking? Nah ;-)

Plenty of alternative fencing solutions about but nobody wants to spend money on them. What a pity when a fence is often part of that first impression ('kerb appeal') of your home.
They cut down all the trees, put 'em in a tree museum and charged all the people just to see 'em

Cost me over three grand (Large fence) I would have a problem justifying to myself spending anymore.
I also have around 20 climbing roses and other climbers training up it this is down the side along the rear after 2 years the fence is completely covered in ivy I have trained on it.....another year or so you will not see anything.
