How to Unlock New Fences and Custom Fences in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Once you have downloaded the 2.0 update on your Nintendo Switch, you must visit the Nook Stop at City Hall and then redeem Nook Miles.
Then you’ll want to find the ‘Custom billboards in a snap’ option. Buy this for 2,500 Nook Miles and you’ll instantly unlock the ability to customize fences.
Not only that, but you’ll immediately have two new types of craft fences available: park fences and large lattice fences.
As for the other types of new fences, they can be purchased for Nook Miles when they are in rotation (two random fences are on sale at the Nook Stop daily) or require DIY recipes and/or seasonal events.
For example, the Frozen fence will be part of the Snowflake set and the Bamboo fence will be part of the Bamboo set.
However, with the arrival of Kapp’n tours, you now don’t have to wait until that time of year to access them, as the seasons can change with each visit, giving you the opportunity to get a homemade recipe of a seasonal set. just remember to check the beaches for a DIY bottle every time.
