Picket Fencing for Melbourne
For many home owners in Melbourne a picket fence is a very desirable addition to their dream home. This is because timber picket fences are long lasting, yet provides a striking feature to your home.
Picket fences are one of the most popular styles of fencing in Melbourne for a front yard. This is especially true for many styles of period homes such in Melbourne. These styles of period homes include Victorian, Edwardian, Federation and Californian Bungalows.
In recent years picket fences have also become popular with modern styles of homes. This is because there is nothing better than a picket fence to add charm and style to your home. This includes a matching picket gate.
One of the reasons why picket fences are so popular in Melbourne is that there are so many styles to choose from. In fact, you can add your own customisation to design a unique picket fence. Variations include height, picket/post ends and inlays.
Styles of Picket Fences
Often the style of the picket fence is chosen to suit the style of the house. For example, an Edwardian style home quite often uses a capped rail picket fence to match it's verandah and any fret work.
A Victorian style home often uses an accented style of picket fence. This is designed to complement it's verandah lacework. In contrast, a concave style picket fence is perfect for a house that has curved features. This includes a bay window or bull nose verandah.
The simplest form of picket fence, is called the level picket fence. It is often used for contemporary style homes. This is because the style of fence compliments the straight lines of the modern home.
