  1. snake fence

    A snake fence, also known as a worm fence, Virginia fence or zigzag fence, is a type of simple wooden fence constructed in a zigzag pattern. This design uses no nails or posts and gets its stability from the alternation of the ends of horizontal wooden logs placed on top of each other. It was commonly used in America due to its low cost and ease of construction. It got its name from its resemblance to a snake or worm due to its winding layout.
