Picket Fences

Complete your cottage garden display with a feature front picket fence.

Paint it to match your period-style home and while away the afternoon with a nice glass of wine.

You’ll be the envy of all of your neighbours. Your classical picket fence may be scalloped or straight, with contrasting posts and uniquely decorative touches, such as archboards, capitols, tailor-made archways and gates – and you’re assured of a craftsman-built finish because, when you have your fence built by Eastside Fencing, you’ll have the job completed by an experienced team who value high quality workmanship.

Picket fences and gates also add character when used to edge your driveway or side of house (as a fixed wing), and their usually pointy nature deters animals and children from leaving the security of your yard. Talk to us today about your ideal picket fence design. We’ll even help you design it – and we’ll be sure to give you a FREE Quote.

*Please Note: Picket Fence heights may vary from approximately 1.2metres to 1.8metres. Fences over 1.2metres high, on quiet streets, and over 1.8metres high, on main roads, may require a Council Permit. Eastside Fencing takes no responsibility for the arrangement of Permits, but we are happy to give fundamental advice about the processes you will need to follow.
