Picket Fence Panels. Using pressure treated timber these good quality sturdy 3 rail panels will have long life.
They are 1.83cm wide. They are available in various heights with rounded or pointed tops.
Usually erected comparatively easily between wooden square section posts or concrete slotted posts, available here. By installing the panels on a gravel board you are putting a protective barrier between the ground and your fence. Our Gravel boards can be found here.
This type of fencing is very popular for garden use. It is relatively straight forward to put up and produces a barrier that is not only attractive but helps to define a boundary but without looking too solid. The 1.2m height is ideal for keeping most dogs in using the rounded top type. A pleasant alternative to a solid type fence.
You should always check planning rules, covenants etc. before putting up a new fence.
Design of picket fence
A picket fence is generally 36 to 48 inches (91 to 122 cm) tall. Three horizontal rails have the picket boards affixed vertically to them. The boards with pointed tops are called “pickets” for their resemblance to the pointed stakes historically used by infantry to repel cavalry.
Make sure your fence is in line with planning rules, covenants etc by checking with your local council before installing it..
The first step in installing a picket fence is to insert the posts into the ground. This is done by digging holes either manually or with a power auger.
Place the posts upright into the ground checking with a level and then pouring post mix around them to cement them into place.
After the post mix has gone off you can begin fixing the panels between the posts checking that they are level as you go.
