A white picket fence is the ideal American garden fixture that everyone wants in the yard. You will see them running around most suburban gardens and many the front yard has a picket fence.
At Fence Supply Online we are always dealing with a demand for white picket fences. New homeowners love them as much as the owners of older homes who want to preserve the style of the property. We often get a surprised look from homeowners too, however, when we suggest a picket fence. To some, it is an old-fashioned style but really it is an everlasting one.
