– Picket fences are usually of a maximum height of 90-120 cm, so they usually add limited security and privacy to your property, making them suitable mostly for front yards in safe neighborhoods where safety is not a major concern;
– Resistance to high winds – picket fences consist of poles installed with relatively large gaps between between them that let the air through without damaging the fence, therefore they are suitable for areas that get strong gusts of wind or constant breeze, such as properties located in coastal areas;
– Affordability – picket fences use much less material than other, more solid fence types, therefore they are more affordable, too. The two most common materials used for making picket fences are vinyl and wood – vinyl is cheaper and more resistant to the elements, especially when it comes to rot and pests, but they are not the strongest, while wood is more pricy, more solid and more attractive, but it requires regular inspections, maintenance and repair.
