Fences are exclusionary when you can't see through them. For example, the
typical suburban lot is surrounded by a 6 foot high wooden fence. I have
seen other kinds of fences, like the wire fences in rural areas not break up
the view at all, so they seem less exclusionary. You can keep a dog in an
area pretty well with a electric wire fence, there are several firms that
sell "invisable" fencing for pets.

A picket fence, to enclose a garden is not visually exclusionary, in fact,
it offers a nice visual element that defines the space.
