About Picket Fencing (Timber Palisade Fencing)
Picket fencing, sometimes referred to as timber palisade fencing is a very popular choice for front gardens and borders, and rightly so, it looks lovely. You can choose between round, pointed or flat tops. The boards are laid vertically, and these are called the “pickets”, which in turn are attached to horizontal rails.
Picket fences are used mostly for decorative reasons, and are very useful for keeping domestic pets and children contained in gardens, without spoiling a pretty view. Traditionally the home and garden picket fence is painted white, and often still is. We can supply and fit either plain wood (pressure tanilised treated) or white painted picket fencing, the choice is up to you!
Most people think of picket fences as those cute cottage style fences only a few inches tall with spacing in between – however, picket fencing can have the pickets aligned much closer to each other, and be 6ft (1.8m) to 8ft (2.4m) tall. Trellis can also be applied to the top of the fence, although the fence would normally be shadow picket fence, with pickets on the front and back, covering the spaces, just like a “Hit and Miss” fence. This gives the picket fence flexibility to suit a range of home situations.
Typical fence heights range from 0.60m (2′) to 1.8m (6′) and in 1.80m (6′), 2.4m (8′), 2.7m (9′), 3m (10′) bay sizes. Capping rail, Gravel Boards and routered posts can be included if desired. The picket fence delivers a strange warming beauty to the onlooker, and can really set off a home and garden.
