I am about to make a picket fence for my front garden and if any one has any tips.
The front garden is just a 3 foot strip of land that i have graveled that runs from one end to other.
There is then a public path be-yond that, then a public grass area.
So the length is about 24 feet by 3 feet with the front doorway some ware in between.
The wife tells me it has to be low so it will only be 1 foot high.
I was going to screw the up rights on 2 stretchers, thats the bits that run vertical.
It seems a strait forward job, cut up rights, cut stretchers, paint white then screw all bits to gether.
