Picket fences at Fencescape
Pickets in this traditional wood fence design are evenly spaced, allowing for some visibility without compromising security. This design works best for people who desire a safe barrier that is yet friendly to visitors and neighbours.
The distance between pickets can be adjusted, but keep in mind that it shouldn’t be too wide so that children or animals can’t get stuck or escape. A natural wood picket fence can provide a contemporary touch despite being normally painted white. Typically, picket fences are not very long. As a result, compared to other fence layouts, the price of materials is typically lower.
Picket fences are great for gardens because they allow sunlight to shine through

OPTIONS BEYOND JUST WOOD
You’ll discover that wood isn’t your only option while searching for a picket fence. A rising range of low-maintenance choices are available, including composites, cellular PVC, metal, and vinyl. But if you want a unique design, wood still has the most shapes and patterns for pickets, and it can be stained in any colour.
PICKET FENCE OPTIONS
Wood pickets come in a variety of materials, from inexpensive pressure-treated pine to redwood, making it a popular choice. They come in a variety of shapes, can be stained any colour, and will occasionally need to be re-coated.
Cellular PVC is a rot-resistant material that can be machined into almost any shape and, from a distance, resembles painted wood. The default white hue is attractive as-is, or exterior paint can be applied.
Vinyl hollow pickets that go through rails or are attached to them create a lightweight fence that never needs to be painted. Although vinyl’s white tone attempts to resemble painted wood, the material’s glossy sheen is obvious.
