The picket fence has been a popular addition to residential yards since colonial times.  It can still be found in many yards today around the world.  While picket fences have been historically constructed of wood, vinyl and aluminum fences are readily available as well.

The most common design of a picket fence is one in which the pickets are mounted vertically on a pair of parallel strips, one near the top and one near the bottom.  These strips are attached to poles driven into the ground.  Over the years, a white picket fence has come to symbolize life in middle-class, suburban America.

A picket fence is an attractive way to mark your property line.  It is a clear boundary mark for your property.  This visual boundary lets you and your neighbors know exactly where your yard ends and their yard begins.

Another reason that homeowners love picket fences is the variety of colors and materials available.  Whether your fence is wood, vinyl, or aluminum, you can find the perfect style and design to compliment your landscaping and home.

For homeowners who like to have a more open and airy feel to their yard, picket fencing may be a better alternative than privacy fencing.  Those properties that back up to a beautiful natural area or common space may prefer to have an unobstructed view.  Because of the construction of a picket fence, you are able to maintain your view.

Adding a picket fence will add value to your home.  When professionally installed and routinely maintained, a fence is a valuable addition to your yard and landscape.
