Take inspiration from a house with a white picket fence for your home’s border!

The white picket fence has captured the imagination of millions in the United States as a traditional symbol of a prosperous life. Mansion gates are meaningless compared to this whitewashed residential border. Undoubtedly, pictures of homes with white picket fences can inspire those looking to have one of their own. Below are several photos of a project that Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence recently completed for a home in Annapolis, MD.

A House with a White Picket Fence: Annapolis, MD

This Annapolitan-style white vinyl picket fence provides a stout, stately, and attractive border around this Annapolis home’s backyard. Residing close to other properties and roads, it provides a clear boundary line. While some of Mid-Atlantic’s clients found a multi-style fence the most practical, this residence keeps it clean and simple with a single fence style, material, and color. Mike Schenck was the estimator for the project; if you would be interested in a free estimate in central Maryland, feel free to reach out to us!

Origins of the White Picket Fence

What makes the picket fence such a great choice for residential properties? Its origins could reveal the mystery. According to Smithsonian Magazine, the picket fence originated from French military barricades. The word “picket” derives from the French word “piquet,” referring to a pointed stick or board used to shield soldiers. In the New World, the picket fence was a rugged and effective means of protecting borders.

Today, the picket fence is still a practical way to provide border security. In the olden days, you would find whitewashed wooden fences, but today, you have a variety of materials from which to choose. 

In the new fence installation in Annapolis, the client used vinyl for a low-maintenance border. Vinyl’s durability is perfect against the effects of UV light, insects, moisture, and more. The most one has to do to maintain it is to wash it as needed.
