Capped Picket Fence

It used to be that a white picket fence was the epitome of the American landscape and a classical design recognizable anywhere. These days, though, a plethora of designs allow you to have that esteemed picket fence with an added measure of style, beauty, usefulness -- or all three. A capped picket fence provides a stately appearance that is also warm and welcoming to those who are invited through the gate. As with nearly all other styles of picket fence, the homeowner can decide if they want to aim for more privacy or more ventilation within their yard by the placement of the slats.

The key difference with a capped picket fence is its distinctive finishing touches. Instead of pickets whose ends reach for the sky, a capped picket fence features a smooth and continuous length of wood that provides a ledge or shelf edge along the top. Neat, orderly and elegant, a capped picket fence also typically has fence posts that are capped as well. This type of fence is suitable for gradual grades in topography which adds to its beauty and charm.
