Picket fencing is perfect to use for building an unassuming fence for your back garden and is especially useful if you have pets or little children in your household. It is a low wooden fence which is made up of boards with evenly separated spaces between them and it is ideal when you require a barrier around potential hazardous such as garden ponds, swimming pools etc.

A picket fence can be built in various sizes and styles depending on your needs and the great thing about picket fencing is that you don’t need to be a real carpenter or an expert to be able to build one on your own. There are picket fence panel products available in the market today that are readily assembled with the Picket Pales nailed onto smooth timber rails. Aside from the picket fence panel, you will also need an appropriate fence post to complete your Picket fence.

Picket fencing is not only easy to install, but can look good for years with very little maintenance work required on it.

When installing your Picket fencing you have two choices –

1. You can cut the panels by approximately 38mm on all ends of each rail before fitting it in, so that when you finish building your Picket Fence the gaps are measured correctly.

2. You can leave the Picket Fence panels with the full length of rail projecting on each end and then you can butt together when fixing to the post and then you can fix a loose Picket Pale over the joint.

Picket fencing has been around for years now as an iconic way of marking out domestic boundaries, and has been particularly popular over the years. Picket Fences are often painted white and made of wood, but you can choose other paint colours to suit your gardens look and feel. Overall Picket Fencing offers a nice addition to your homes exterior and one that is closely associated with peaceful living.
