PICKET FENCING

Picket fencing is an attractive but quite rarely used form of fencing nowadays. Long lasting, it is not susceptible to wind and whilst providing a barrier does not completely screen whatever is behind it. Ideal for front gardens. Gates can also be easily built to match your fence. The pickets or pales come either 3' or 4' high and can have rounded or pointed tops.

All the timber used is pressure treated and comes from renewable sources. Most people build these fences using 75mm posts. However, we would suggest considering using 100mm posts as they last a great deal longer.

We generally construct ours from the following materials:

- 100mm (4") Posts (preferred) or 75mm (3") Posts - Concreted into the ground to a minimum depth of 600mm (2') and a maximum of 1.8 metres apart.

- 75mmx25mm rails screwed to the posts.

- 900mm (3') or 1200mm (4') pales nailed or screwed to the rails.

- Post-caps - nailed to tops of posts to protect the end-grain from the weather.
