Picket Fencing in Perth & Perth's South West Region
Who doesn’t love the charm and appeal of a picket fence? It makes no difference if your living in the country or knee deep in suburbia, a picket fence evokes a cozy, warm feeling or when fronting a more grand property, a classic look that tugs at the heartstrings and stands the test of time in terms of style.
Picket fences are decorative fences generally used as boundaries for domestic properties. The construction used is with pickets spaced vertically along horizontal rails, with posts which can also have different styles. The decorative element is achieved by the various styles of heads on top of the pickets. Windsor, Saxon, Spade, Club and Acorn are a few of these. Dramatic effects can be achieved by installing the pickets at different heights to give a concave or arched look. Also extremely popular with customers is a simple square top picket fence. This can compliment a more modern style of home and looks clean-cut and streamlined, both in a solid colour or in timber. Another popular choice is to have a capping rail on the top of your picket fence.Yet another idea is to choose a decorative post and use plainer topped pickets. So as you can see, the choices are vast, but most clients already have an idea of the ‘look’ they are wanting to achieve with their picket fence. Bears Fencing will let you know if your ideas are possible and also to a certain degree, suitable for your property. Matching gates can, of course, be constructed to match your fence and will complete the overall look.
Choosing the style, height and colour of your picket fence used to be the hard choice and timber construction was the norm. Over the years picket fencing has evolved and you now also have the choice of materials that your fence is constructed in to consider as well. Bears Fencing can now supply your picket fencing in both timber and powder coated metal. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? here is a roundup for you:
