Picket fencing is built upon the same principles as closeboard with posts and rails onto which the pickets are fixed (a gravel board can also be used if desired). Pickets come in a variety of lengths from 3ft upto 6ft and can be supplied with a flat, pointed or rounded top. We also supply or make matching gates.
Rounded top pickets are available in a prepared (smooth planed) finish which is ideal for a finer result or as a child friendly alternative to the mainstream rough-sawn timbers. When choosing this style, we suggest that you also use prepared posts, rails and gravel boards to give the best overall appearance. Some of the pictures below are from a local childrens nursery and have been well tested since installation with no complaints of splinters yet.
In a garden environment this style of fence provides a sutble yet effective barrier as plants can still grow through the gaps softening the overall look.
