A Classic Picket Fence Design from GardenStructure.com

An inspired classic picket fence design needs to be symmetrical, to appear the same from both faces. Poorly planned picket fences look different inside and out. Resulting disagreements create hard feelings if the “Bad Side” is oriented towards the neighbor with the softest disposition.  A snowflake like neighbor may never speak to you again if their feelings are hurt. It is better to get it right in the fence during planning.

The builders can make this picket fence any height. Protruding pickets have a soft rounded profile. This is more inviting than jagged barbs up top. You can adjust the height to suit, add curved sections, single or double gates, or a taller lighted post if you like.

Picket fences are entirely exposed to the elements so use a durable outdoor wood like red cedar.  Seal all 6 sides for durability with a high quality, (imported), exterior stain is advised. (The EPA has banned many chemicals that make stain last longer. We are seing very poor performance of exterior stains presently.) When materials are prefinished with stain, the fences always last much longer.
