I speak from experience here. I put a PVC picket fence around a quarter acre back yard about 10 years ago. It is fantastic. I hired a fence company to install it. They dug each hole separately and concreted the posts. Then installed the spans. The good thing about it was the fact that it followed the contour on the land. Not sure if the Home Depot spans will do this. You will have to check it out. FYI, it still looks brand new after 10 years. I only had to clean one span that gets all shade where my sprinkler hits it and some mold grows. I wipe it with some Clorox spray and good to go for another year. Clearly this fence is fantastic. But I see a lot of maintenance that I am not into (painting, scraping, replacing, etc). Job we'll done here. Also, my fence never had that shiny fake plastic look.

Gary, I really liked what you said about how your vinyl fencing has lasted 10 years and still looks great. My wife and I have been doing a little bit of work around our home and it is nice to know what some of the benefits of this type of fencing are. Not only does it look great as this picture demonstrates, it also lasts a long time, which is really nice. Thank you for sharing.

I agree, I think that this fence looks great. Is it made out of vinyl or wood? My wife and I have been planning on putting something like this around our yard for a couple of months now. It would be the white picket fence that my wife has always dreamed of.

Just looking at this fence has me wondering just how deep the person had to install it from the ground up. It's a thought that came to my mind since my plans for this month would be to do a fence installation. for my backyard. The main reason is mostly for privacy and to keep the deer off from my wife's plants.

What are the dimensions? - That's such a cute white picket fence! I love the spacing between each Pickett. My husband and I would love a fence like this around the grass and flower in our front yard.

I like the edge, but can it be done without the fence? - I have a very shady lot and wonder if the fence might block out the best op for light I have

The picket fence is the one we associate with small-town America and our colonial roots. It's the fence most at home in front of Cape Cod and colonial-style homes. Because a picket fence isn't meant to be tall and visually opaque, it's more often than not used to define an edge or a corner as well as to create a backdrop. As such, a picket fence is more appropriate for a front yard, where it can enhance curb appeal, forming the backdrop for all those wonderful summertime blooms.

2. Create a composition with a sculpture. Draw the eye to the corner with a sculptural focal point surrounded by a border garden.

This garden is totally about what's viewed by the owners. It has a stoutly constructed white fence as a neutral color foil for colorful flowers that are high along the fence and dip down as they approach the lawn.

2. Fences. Not every front yard needs a fence, but sometimes it helps to create a separation between the sidewalk and the garden. Front-yard fences should not be the same type of privacy fence as in a backyard; they should be more open and friendlier, setting off your garden rather than sealing it off. Keep the fencing low, about 3 to 4 feet tall. This way your neighbors can see in without feeling like they can just walk onto your property. Aim for a slightly open and friendly feel, as tall fences say, "Keep out." Choose classic white pickets, rustic split-rail fencing or contemporary horizontal board fencing — just make sure to choose a style that sets off the architecture of your home.
Laura Gaskill added this to Great Home Project: Commission a New Fence or Gate
Typical project length: While installation times vary depending on the length of the fence and materials used, most can be installed in three to five days. Custom fences designed in conjunction with a landscaping plan, and special circumstances such as steeply sloped or rocky properties, will take more time for both planning and installation.Best time to start: Spring through fall. Pros tend to be busiest in the warmer months, so it’s a good idea to begin contacting potential landscape designers early on. Rain and high humidity can impact the setting of concrete for fence posts, so if your area gets very humid in summer, you may want to consider scheduling work in spring or fall instead.
