Picket fence is a type of fence often used decoratively for domestic boundaries, well known by their evenly spaced vertical boards, called pickets, attached to horizontal rails, called tops.
While picket fences could be made out of different materials, homeowners and businesses mostly choose wrought iron, or aluminum fences to complement their properties with a traditional modern look for several reasons like strength, durability and low cost.
Wrought iron, steel or aluminum picket fences are very durable. Unlike wood, they are not susceptible to rot or wood-loving insects such as termites.
Such pests eat wood and cause holes, but they naturally have no taste for Mines.
Likewise, alloys aren’t susceptible to splintering or cracking. Generally speaking, the picket fence made from alloys remains intact for years.
Regardless of your material choices, picket fences are one of the most inexpensive fencing options!
Furthermore, When you have a beautiful and durable picket fence surrounding your property, it certainly won’t hurt the value of your home.
In fact, it will actually boost the marketability of your property, as potential buyers will no doubt love the look and practicality of a picket fence.
But, you might be questioning yourself. Why should I have a picket fence in the first place?
Above all, a good and attractive picket fence keeps neighbor relations friendly. A rickety fence isn’t going to win you any friends.
However, a nice picket fence enhances the look of both your own yard and your neighbor’s since they’ll be looking at the fence from their side. What’s more, pickets are low, so they won’t block your neighbors’ views.
One of the other big duties fences fulfill is keeping your family inside the perimeters of your yard. This is mostly relevant for families with children and pets. As we Mentioned earlier, picket fences are usually low, between two to four feet tall, so kids will be able to see out without being able to get out.
