A stylishly timeless perimeter fence that is flexible and cost effective...

Considered a neighbour friendly style as the vertical pales allow for visibility through the fence and a fence height that is usually at the 3-4' mark.

It is also useful for partitioning areas of the garden such as a children's play area or a place for pets to be contained. The gaps in the pales are small enough to prevent dogs or chickens getting through and there is always the option of attaching chicken wire.

Matching picket gates are simple to install in a matching style and are popular as pedestrian gates to properties. If you need vehicular access, the gates can be installed as twin leafed gates with a centre drop bolt.

For a finish there are various options:

  • Round topped
  • Pointed topped
  • Flat topped
  • Sawn finish - slightly rougher to the touch
  • Planed smooth finish - ideal for painting (we can paint prior to installation)

Tom came round to quote yesterday morning and sent email quote immediately. I asked for a couple of modifications to the quote and these were actioned straight away. Once I was happy to proceed, I had an email (which I missed) and a follow up call because they could fit our job in yesterday afternoon. I was surprised but really pleased to get it done so quickly. Harry and his mate arrived on time and did a great job. Access through our neighbour’s garden, old concrete post and chain link in the way, long extension cable needed, not much room on our side due to our old shed…..nothing was a problem for these guys - they got on with it and were very friendly and polite. Thank you guys - I will recommend you to my family and friends :) Very easy to pay online too!

I wanted some of my patio removed and a concrete ramp built from my back door down to my gate. Tom arrived on time to give the quote which I was happy with, and as it was urgent I was booked in the same week for the works which I was pleased with. The guys who came to do the job were a bit late but were polite and friendly and kept me informed about what they were doing. Very pleased with the end result!

Very impressed with the landscaping job that Bobby, Harry and Dom did on our front and back patio. They really listened to and took on board our ideas and have improved the garden immeasurably. Good attention to detail, hard working and professional throughout. Fair price agreed with Tom, who was also a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend and would use again

Everything You Need To Know

Picket fencing usually comes in a pine softwood that is pressure treated with a green or brown finish. Other wood and vinyl picket fencing is available and we can discuss this if you'd like to get in touch.

For custom requirements we can make the panels on site at any height, although the maximum height is generally 2 meters or 6'6" for domestic installations.

Similarly we can construct custom gates to your requirements.

A close variant of picket fencing is hit and miss style fencing whereby the pales are alternately nailed on each side of the rails. This option provides much more privacy.

If you would like your fence painted or stained, we can provide a quote for you which is based on coverage area. The fence will be painted or treated prior to installation and we will advise on the correct products for a high quality and long lasting finish.
