Welcome to our gallery featuring a number of white picket fence ideas for your front and back yards.
White picket fences have long been a symbol of quiet, middle class life in the suburbs, and the decorative fences are both practical and pretty.
Picket fences are traditionally white and made out of wood, although the need to constantly whitewash or repaint the fence and replace aging boards has pushed other materials into popularity and picket fences are now widely available in PVC.
The appeal of a picket fence is pretty simple: it’s a great way to keep your kids and/or pets in the yard without creating an eyesore for you (or your neighbors.) You can easily see over and through the fence, and it adds curb appeal to your yard.
Whether the fence is standalone or has beautiful foliage and flowers popping through, white picket fences are a classic way add function and interest to any outdoor space.
