Picket Fence:

Overview,

Since early settlement in Australia the picket fence has been popular in both the utilitarian and decorative role. In recent years the picket fence has assumed the more decorative role, generally as a suburban front fence.

The basis elements are the same as for a paling fence – posts, rails and vertical infill components the main differences being that these component parts are also selected for appearance as the timber is usually dressed all round and free of blemishes.
There is an infinite range of styles available but pickets fences can generally be grouped as: Straight top, rise and fall, scalloped and staggered with pickets either in an unbroken line or in bays set between projecting posts.

Unlike paling fences which are mostly left in there natural state picket fences are surface protected and decorated with either a stained or painted finish.
