Orlestone Oak Fencing Products
Picket Fencing
Picket fencing is traditionally used around cottage gardens, but can also be used elsewhere.
Orlestone picket fencing can be supplied as untreated hardwood, using oak from our own sawmill, or in softwood that has been pressure-treated with Tanalith E which helps prevent insect infestation and rot.

It can be made into a variety of designs by varying the height of the boards, or pales, which can be rounded, pointed, straight or chamfered on the upper edge.

Posts are erected at regular intervals which are spanned by arris rails which can be mortice and tennoned, or nailed. The pales are nailed to the arris rails at regular intervals between the posts.
Please speak to our sales staff if you wish to discuss your project.
