Also known as the classic picket fence Timber Palisade remains a perennial favourite for more than its charm and good looks. It’s also a deceptively effective boundary, creating a clear line of separation while appearing to be nothing more than a familiar decoration. This unique characteristic of a welcoming barrier makes the picket fence a good choice for enclosing an area in front of your property.

Timber Palisade can be a very elegant, timeless and stylish design. It’s most commonly used for fencing front gardens or public places such as schools or parks.
As with closeboard and feather edge fencing, there are many benefits for Timber Palisade fencing.

Traditionally, a picket fence is about 900mm (3ft) to 1.2m (4ft) tall but can be made to virtually any height you require using 25mm x 75mm (1″×3″) pickets. Fence posts can be spaced anywhere up to 2.4 metres (8ft) apart Depending on your preference, the posts can be either 100mm x 100mm (4″×4″) or 75mm x 75mm (3″×3″). Spacing between the pickets is a question of function and taste, go with whatever spacing looks best and fulfils your functional needs. The pickets themselves come in three standard styles; round, pointed and square top.
As an alternative, you can build your fence using prefabricated fence panels for the picket infill which come with different decorative styles. Also it can come in planed all round (PAR) this can be used in more sensitive area such as nurseries or play areas.
All timber is tanalised softwood.
Due to the gaps in between each pale, it’s easy to maintain. If any of the pales become damaged in anyway, the pale in question can be removed and replaced with minimal effort and hassle.
With wood being a natural resource, we advise that you treat your fence with a good quality solvent based protection and reapply that protection approximately every 2 – 3 years.
