When you hear the term white picket fence it can conjure up thoughts and images of an all American family from the 50’s living in a big house with 2.5 children and a dog. Picket fences are however still standing strong and today they are still one of the most popular options for fencing a front garden.

First impressions are vital so make sure that you are giving across the right one starting with the fence.
