If you are looking to add a classic look to your property, look no further than picket fences! This classic fence style looks great on modern day properties when installed by the experts at Artistic Fence.

 Today, we can install wood, vinyl, or aluminum picket fences that vary in height, style, and color.  Our fence designers work with you to choose picket spacing, fence materials, and gates that work for your artistic vision. Along with matching gates and custom arbors and trellises, these fences can add a lot of value to your home or business.

Take a look through some of our fences below to get a feel for the work our designers and installation crews do here in northern New Jersey. 

PICKET FENCE DEFINITION

A Picket Fence is a type of fence often used decoratively to establish domestic boundaries, although there is nothing stopping you from installing one at a commercial property! These fences are easily distinguished by their evenly spaced vertical boards (pickets), which are held in place by a top and bottom horizontal rail.

You might notice a lot of houses with white fences of this style in New Jersey, and that’s no surprise. Picket fences are one of the most popular fence types in America and we often associate them with the suburban middle class. These fences conjure feelings of a easier, simpler yesterday.

While builders used to make these fences only out of wood in Colonial times, we now have the technology to construct fences out of vinyl (i.e. PVC) and aluminum. This adds a lot of flexibility when designing your fence. Of course, wood fences are still a beautiful and viable option for your property.

PICKET FENCE BENETS

There are a lot of reasons to choose this fence style for your property, including: 

UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS

Installing a picket fence on your property means you, your children, and your pets will have unobstructed views to whatever is on the other side – be it neighbors, wildlife, or anything else!

VERSATILE DESIGNS

Your fence plans can be simple or complex – we work with both! Between varying picket spacing, heights, and materials, we can create the fence idea you’ve been dreaming of for your NJ property! 

CREATIVE STYLES

The simple picket fence you’re probably thinking of is just a jumping off point. We can construct a variety of creative styles, including crowned and scalloped styles. Ask one of the Good Fence People what we can do!

PICKET FENCE COST

Figuring out the cost of your fence depends on a number of factors, including: 

> Fence height
> Picket spacing
> Fence material
> Fence length
> Number of gates
