Picket fencing or palisade is a fantastic way to break up your garden with a country cottage style, without affecting the vista.
Palisade panels, or picket fencing as it is otherwise known, are constructed using pales fixed to a backing rail. They can have either, flat, round or pointed tops. Our range is available in brown and green finish, and includes our industry leading pressure treatment technology. To suit any garden, the palisade can be further customised with pales available in a range of styles. We’ve compiled the top three ways to put them to use:
Sectioning your garden
Picket fencing is a great way to create different ‘zones’ in your garden. Available in a variety of styles, palisade can break up your outdoor space while providing a rural, cottage garden feel.
Palisade fencing can be cleverly incorporated in your garden to accentuate flower beds or garden buildings. What’s fantastic about them is, while they highlight the area, they don’t affect your line of sight. By sectioning your garden as a series of different ‘rooms’ or sections, the zoning allows you to make the most of your outdoor space.
Safety for children and dogs
As many of you will be acutely aware, children and animals have a superpower getting into everything. Fencing is an excellent way to keep kids, pets, and wildlife out of important or dangerous areas of your outdoor space – maintaining the safety, integrity, and beauty of your garden. It’s the exact reason you commonly see picket fencing around a herb garden or flowerbed, offering protection from wildlife or visitors, to your delicate or prize plants.
Use palisade fencing around harmful or poisonous plants, bodies of water, and veg patches to help safeguard your loved ones and prevent footprints and pawprints alike.
Create a sanctuary removed from the outside world by enclosing your garden with fencing. Our fence panels provide both security and privacy, whilst adding style and form to your garden. Picket fencing offers the same sense of structure that you get from a full height fence, but in a half height design that doesn’t compromise your property’s beautiful view.
If you want to mark your boundary line without obstructing your eyeline, palisade is the perfect choice for you.

How do I keep my fencing looking great all year round?
Prevention is easier than cure, so it is worth taking the measures now to look after your fencing in the future. Properly preserve the colour and health of your palisade panels against the elements by applying a timber treatment. It’s simple to apply and keeps your fences protected, whatever the weather.
It is vital to give your fencing time to settle into your garden before you apply any treatment. By waiting at least 6 months after installation, the pressure treated timber will have had adequate time to dry out, allowing for a more effective uptake of the treatment.
