Wooden picket fence used as a reliable fence infield element territory zoning, decorative edging flower beds and flower beds
Stems with flowers, filling the gaps in the gaps between the vertical bars, attach the fence more attractive
The continued popularity of this type of fencing due to a number of its parameters and properties, the main among which:
- Versatility. Wooden fences perfectly fit into anylandscape of the area. They go perfectly with any other basics, organically fitting into the interior, made of stone or brick, concrete or metal.

One of the advantages of the fence, in comparison with the traditional solid fence, is the ability planter directly at its base.
For the construction of the fence will need:
- The supporting pillars. They can be made of metal pipes or thick beams.
- Shtaketiny. Narrow slats are made of edged or planed boards.
- Prozhiliny. Transverse strips placed horizontally between the support pillars, length 2-2.5 meters are made of section bars of 40 mm.
Choosing the material to make the fencethe fence, you can go two ways: purchase the finished fence or make it yourself from the boards. The first method allows you to save time. Ready fence can be installed on the day of purchase. But the major drawback can serve as low-quality raw wood, serving as a basis for the fence, which is in the process of exploitation "lead" the fence. By choosing the second path, the owner will need to make an effort to spend a few days on the production of all elements of the fence. But the result, he will have a fence, which is fully consistent with his ideas and wishes.
First we need to calculate the length ofthe future of the fence, the height, the distance between the support pillars and the dimension of the fence. Buying boards for the fence, give preference to well-dried products.
If the material is not sufficiently dried out, you need to take advantage of special dryers for wood, because in natural conditions, drying may take several seasons
Service timber drying, as well as cuttingshtaketin crossbars and can be ordered in a place where engaged in manufacturing of wood products. In preparing the material on their own, should be thoroughly washed down and sanding all the tops.
Skins tops of wooden picket
The lower part of the wooden supporting pillars need to fluff hot with pitch. This will prevent rotting wood and extend the life of the structure.
Construction of the fence is carried out according to the sameprinciple, as well as the construction of other types of fencing. First of all, the future is determined by the direction of the fence. It must be free of weeds, bushes and branches of trees, which would interfere with the construction. Then, on the cleared territory stretched beacons and stretched lace scheduled to place in columns. The distance between the posts should not exceed three meters. Otherwise, the long spans between supports can cause sagging under the weight of cross shtaketin.
The support poles can be installed directly into the ground, but to create a more robust design it is better to build with pouring cement-sand mortar.
To install the required columns by using a drill to dig a hole, the depth of which is determined by the height of the fence. The average depth of 1.3 m is sufficient
Install bollards 20 cm gravelcushion, which helps to prevent squeezing of support at the ground freezing. Vertical fixed bollards sleep alternating layers of concrete solution and soil.
After completing installation of the columns on the stroke linefences can be set between prozhiliny. In principle, install a fence, you have two ways: first, when the first cross member mounted between the posts, and then nailed him to fence, while the second - spans are collected separately and are fixed to the supports already blocks.
First shtaketina mounted vertically and aligned with the rest of the T-shaped pattern in which letters leg width "t" is shtaketin step, and nailed
On average, the distance between the same shtaketinamiwidth dostochek themselves. Fix cross strips on wooden supporting pillars, you can use screws, bolts, or normal nails. For metal prozhiliny the posts are mounted on specially welded bracket for mounting the beam.
Ready fence can only be protected against weathering and other negative influencing factors.
It is necessary to close up all cracks and chipped plastering compositions impregnate antiseptic fence, and then varnish, stain or paint
On board svezhestrugannye film formers bad fall and long stay. In order to "rough up" the surface of the tree, you can clean up its medium-grained sandpaper.
Stain - excellent preservative that protects wood from mold and microbial growth
Varnish will protect the wood from moisture. Using stain and clear lacquer can also simulate various types of wood.
