The picket fence has withstood the test of time with it’s colonial appeal and ability to add an instant charm to a home. So where did the ‘picket fence’ originate from? Well the name itself ‘picket’ is believed to have originated in 1690 from the French word ‘piquet’ meaning ‘pointed sticks’. Initially used as weapon, the picket soon become a way to form a secure barrier and one which would be difficult to climb over.
It was the American’s that brought the ‘white picket fence’ into the limelight in the 1950′s as a term used to describe the ‘perfect’ all-American household but it is the simplistic yet charismatic design of the picket fence which has seen it last through the ages and being used in different forms around the world.
As charming as they are, picket fences don’t necessarily suit every house. A fence – especially a front one – needs to be seen as part of your house and one which compliments the design and structure of your house. Your landscaping also needs to be considered when installing a fence.
The team at Amazing Fencing can also assist with design options to work with your house, not against. If you would like to have a free and no obligation quote by one of our experienced installers, call today.
Brisbane is the third largest city in Australia and with it’s glorious Queensland weather, one of the more appealing capital cities in Australia to live. The temptation of having city suburban living only forty minutes away from the famous Gold Coast beaches is a big incentive to the thousands of interstate residents who make the move to the sunshine state each year.
With this move comes the expectation to live the perfect Queensland lifestyle and own the perfect Queensland home. When looking for your new Brisbane home or renovating your existing one, there is one thing that can not be overlooked and that’s the difference a well erected fence makes. As well as curb appeal to the home, the right fence can accentuate the existing landscaping and even assist in cooling your home down in the hot Queensland summers.
Slat and screen fencing is a modern take on the traditional timber fence and is extremely popular in South East Queensland. The appeal of slat fencing in the Brisbane and Gold Coast area is primarily the appearance but also the fact that while offering privacy it allows airflow. The measured gaps in between the timber slats are the perfect natural ventilation system for your yard and your home.
Slat and screen fencing is also ideal for smaller spaces as it offers the illusion of more space compared to a solid structure. This is perfect for Brisbane townhouses with limited yard space.
