Wood Types and Picket Styles

Wood Types and Picket Style to choose from.  Our most popular is treated pine. Dog ear  picket for stockade and shadowbox privacy.  Gothic and french gothic pickets make a beautiful looking traditional picket fence for front lawns.


  *Cypress is dense and heavy and untreated. Natural life expectancy is about 7-10 years.  

Cedar is much more attractive ( Natural insect repellent) and easier to work with, also untreated but life expectancy is about 12 years in its natural state. 

Life of both can be extended by staining after installation and then again every 3-5 years depending on the weathering.
