Timber Picket Fencing
Timber Picket Fencing is a traditional fencing style produced by wooden posts attached to a rail with empty spaces between the posts. The elegant design has been popular for many years and is especially seen in the surrounding front gardens. Picket Fencing is the ideal option to protect or delimit the boundaries while letting the light through.
A picket fence will merge with almost all properties and gardens, making it an excellent option to protect garden features such as ponds or pools without blocking the view or being too intimidating.
A timber picket fence can add the final touch to your home. When you build it yourself, with the help of professional fencing contractors, you can create the exact look you want. Your fence will keep children and pets safely inside and unwanted guests outside, giving you the privacy, you want. Choose a design that integrates your home and garden, making sure your house “pops” with the right materials and are on the right path.
In the construction timber picket fences, the pickets are mounted vertically and fixed to horizontal rails. The rails are fixed to the cemented uprights directly on the ground, at the top of the retaining walls or fixed between brick pillars, walls, columns or other structures.
