How to Style your Picket Fence

Posted on July 14,2018 by Dave Smith.

Picket fencing is a classic choice for any home and never goes out of style. It instantly lends a classy air to any property, and is both pretty and functional at the same time. However, don’t just assume that one picket fence fits all; there are actually several choices for picket fencing, and you may wish to choose the one that suits both your sense of style and that of your house.

Picket Pretty

When most of us think about picket fencing, we tend to think about pretty, white pickets. This is still the most popular choice for picket fencing, but it doesn’t have to be the only choice.

Natural wood coloured pickets are a great choice if you want something a little more rustic and earthy in tone, which will blend with the grounds of your property. We’ve also seen a very classy shade of grey recently, which when teamed with clever planting can lend a stylish French countryside feel to a property.

Alternatively, why not paint the larger fence posts one colour and the pickets in between another? We love the combination of navy blue posts with crisp, classic white pickets!

Picket Finishes

Don’t feel that your pickets have to be flat and straight cut at the top; they can be more decorative if you so wish. For example, there are various styles of picket available such as French Gothic style (shield shaped) or a pointed top.

Alternatively, why not go for a Yorkshire style picket fence whereby the pickets in between are straight cut (although sometimes arranged in a concave fashion – another style you could choose for your picket finish!) and the fence posts are topped with newel tops.

Picket Planting

Of course, you can also style your picket fencing with your choice of planting scheme, too. Why not grow banks of lavender against your picket fencing, so that it spills out either side? This is a classically pretty look with a French feel to it.

Alternatively, if you want something which is more English country garden, beautiful rose bushes in a delicate blush pink or white look stunning when planted next to picket fencing.

If you’re considering picket fencing for your home, don’t feel like you have to go with the traditional style. There are plenty of ways that you can install picket fencing so as to enhance your home.
