Picket fencing has been a front garden favourite for many years. The design has been favoured by many for offering an attractive option for marking a boundary without creating an overbearing barrier. It’s a truly timeless type of fencing that has a whole lot of undiscovered potential.

different styles of picket fencing

We offer three designs of picket fencing: with rounded pales, pointed pales, or our Mitre panel which has slimmer pales with a mitre top. Our rounded top and pointed top picket fencing is available in both panel and traditional kit form.

There is a lot of potential to create your own design from our picket fencing. We explore different ways to create various designs and styles utilising the capabilities of picket fencing.

Picket Fencing in Panel Form

Picket fencing in panel form in panel form is delivered in pre-constructed panels or bays that can be installed using our slotted Jakposts®. The panels slot into the posts and should be secured using screws to hold it in position and for security. We supply panel form fencing with rounded and pointed tops and in our Mitre design. .

Mitre Picket Fencing

We developed our Mitre panel to add a contemporary twist on the traditional design of a picket fence. Its narrow, elongated pales help give its name as the shape is similar to a bishop’s mitre. As standard, we only supply this in pre-constructed panel form for use with our slotted posts. Available in heights of 1m and 1.2m.

Traditional Picket Fencing

Traditional or 'kit form' picket fencing is designed to be installed on site. Pales, rails and posts all come separately giving the freedom to select the pale spacing, the height of the pales, and the flexibility to install the fence on tricky sites e.g. a hilly garden. Traditional picket fencing is available with rounded and pointed pales in various heights.

Tall Picket Fencing

Picket fencing is also available with tall picket pales. Taller picket fencing offers more privacy and better security as it's harder to scale.

Create your own picket fencing design

The possibilities are endless, traditional picket fencing allows you to create a unique and individual design.

Double Sided Picket Fencing

Alternating the picket fence pales on either side of the rails creates a hit and miss effect which not only looks good, but can increase the privacy of that which a standard picket fence offers. This design would be ideal in front gardens where you would like to distort a person’s line of view. Double sided picket fencing is also suited to gardens where you need to provide more security for pets or don’t want items to be lost through the pales.

Double Sided Picket Fencing

Installing the picket pales at varying heights can create a truly unique pattern. The rise and fall add a different decorative touch to the fencing.
