Picket Fences Many people visualize living in a house that has a white picket fence, which resembles a perfect version of the American Dream. Most picket fencing is around three feet high and made of redwood or cedar. Of course, such fences serve to accessorize more than protect the backyard. Thus, picket fence designs typically vary the most and afford best chances to customize.
What benefits are there for homeowners to have a fenced in backyard? This is a question many people ask themselves when looking at homes on the market with yards that are fenced in verse one that aren't. There are many great selling points about a home with a back yard fenced in. I always tell my buyers the same thing; it is a good thing the owner did it now you won't have to. Eventually people who buy homes in neighborhoods will install a fence. It is just a matter of time. If you happen to be the homeowner "without" a fence it is only because the neighbors installed theirs first enclosing your property in the process.
The key to longevity for any wood fence are the fence posts themselves. Never use a wood post for a wood fence. Wood posts (both cedar and treated) that are in contact with the ground can rot out in less than five years depending on soil conditions. Treated wood posts may also twist and warp as the posts dry out over time. A galvanized steel post will never rot or twist. It will last a lifetime. When installing a steel post be sure to use one that can be covered to look like wood. With a steel post that is covered the fence will look like wood and but will have the durability of steel.
