Is a wood picket fence right for your yard? See what this classic fence has to offer!

When many of us think about a charming home, we think about a white picket fence outside. Something about this type of fence has captivated homeowners for decades, and the good news is that you can have one around your yard! There are many different reasons to install a wood picket fence, and here are some of our favorites. 

Curb Appeal

Choosing to install a wood picket fence is a great way to boost the curb appeal of your home. Even if you aren’t planning on placing your home on the market any time soon, who doesn’t want to have a beautiful home that everyone loves walking past? While a white picket fence is classic, you can also make your fence more rustic with an attractive wood stain or paint it a fun color to add more personality to your yard. The possibilities are endless! 


There are many different fencing materials, and all have their pros and cons, but one of the top reasons to install a wood picket fence is its affordability. Wood is much more cost-effective than iron and steel, and it also does not require excessive maintenance as long as you perform light seasonal upkeep and have repairs made quickly. Plus, you can choose between a price range of lumber based on grade and species. A higher grade will have fewer knots, and pressure-treated pine is cheaper than cedar.


A fence is a hefty investment, and you would never want to waste money installing a fence that is not going to stand the test of time. If you install a wood picket fence and take good care of it, you can expect it to last for many years without issue. We can help walk you through the proper maintenance of your fence, including re-painting or re-staining and replacing any boards that start to decay or rot. If you are ready to begin your new fence installation project, Freedom Fence & Deck is here to help!
