The spaced picket fence is a historical design used for front and side yards. The faces of this colonial-style fence may be smooth, rounded, or display the naturally rough, rounded sides of the log. They can be assembled as components or installed as a panel with several options for backrails. Typically, they are built as a mortise-and-tenon rail-and-post system.
