Available in a range of heights, timber palisade fencing can be very attractive – often used in domestic gardens (sometimes known as ‘picket’ fencing) but also popular around children’s play areas, especially when the timber is planed – giving it a really smooth finish. It is a good style of fencing for demarcation, without being obtrusive in design, and spacing of the pales allows air and light to pass through, unlike some of the alternative screen fences such as close board or panels.
A slightly more expensive alternative is the machine-rounded timber palisade fencing. The posts are full round and scalloped to take half round rails, with half round pales bolted on. The posts and pales have chamfered tops for that final touch.
