Master Halco Wood Spaced Picket Fence
The spaced picket fence is a historical design used for front and side yards. The faces of this colonial-style fence may be smooth, rounded, or display the naturally rough, rounded sides of the log. They can be assembled as components or installed as a panel with several options for backrails. Typically, they are built as a mortise-and-tenon rail-and-post system.
Your local area will determine which species of wood are readily available. The primary species or groups of wood used in spaced picket fencing are:
  • Western Red Cedar
  • Northern White Cedar
  • Whitewoods
  • Treated
