Before starting your project, talk to your Denver fence company about which style of fence you want installed in your yard. Below are a few great options.
The French Gothic style is a variation on the Gothic style.
Rather than coming to a simple point, the board in a French Gothic-style picket fence comes to what might be termed an “arrowhead” shape. In the next fence picture, you’ll see another style of picket fence.
Unlike the fence in the prior landscaping photo, the boards of this picket fence do not end in an arrowhead shape.
Their tips are more rounded, instead. In the next fence picture, you’ll see another style of picket fence.
Corner Fences With Dog-Ear Pickets
The dog-ear style of pickets, as seen in this fence picture, is a variation on the flat-top picket-style shown in the prior landscaping photo.
Just slightly more ornate than pickets in the flat-top style are “dog-ear” pickets. Dog-ear pickets derive their name from the image they evoke of a “dog-eared” page in a book, that is, a page whose corner has been folded over to bookmark a particular spot in a book.
Of course, this fence picture illustrates something else not encountered in the prior landscaping pictures. For this landscaping photo shows a stand-alone corner fence. Such corner fences are purely decorative since they form neither barrier nor border. In the next fence picture, you’ll see a corner fence used in a different manner.
Plain Baluster-Style Fencing
At a quick glance, you might mistake this style of fencing for the picket style.
But if you look closely, the “rungs” of this fencing do not consist of boards wider than they are thick, as is the case with picket fencing. Instead, they are 2 inches wide x 2 inches deep. Although some folks nonetheless refer to them as “pickets,” I prefer to term them, “balusters,” in order to draw a distinction. In the example shown in this fence picture, the balusters are essentially squared pegs that come to a point — that is, they are very plain.
