My Beautiful White Picket Fence!



I'm so excited to share these photos of my new white picket fence!
 
We've come along way over the last month in our major landscaping and retaining wall project.   Now that the fence is in, I can order the sod and the rest of the shrubs and plants! 
 
The fence is a special order through Home Depot. It's pro series fencing called the "Veranda Silverbell" scalloped fence.  It is a very sturdy white vinyl fence that does not look cheap and never needs painting!  The wide pickets definitely give it a more high-end look.



The gray stone retaining wall needed some sophistication and this beautiful white fence does the job!

There will be plantings of Dwarf Alberta Spruce, Blue Hydrangeas and Large Hosta in front of the wall to soften this large area.

The upper area is going to be a small formal garden with sod, boxwoods, cements urns and pretty annuals.




 
Lots more to come!  We hope to have the sod delivered this week and start planting next weekend.

A white vinyl fence on the other hand will require next to no maintenance. Vinyl fence materials are made to stand the test of the time.

Yes, that's why I chose the Vinyl picket fence. I didn't want to have to paint it every couple of years.

This looks like a really great white picket fence. I can't help but think of the fence painting scene in Tom Sawyer when I see these pictures. You did a good job with building this wood fence on the stone retaining wall. I'm surprised by how well put together the wall looks with the fence on top of it. I tried to build a retaining wall, then build a wooden fence on top of it, but my work looked really sloppy. Perhaps one day my fence and retaining wall will look as good as your fence and wall look in these pictures.

the fence in yellow and sold sign post and sign in white. Use a toothpick to scrape the outlines where they meet on the post. Reserve some of each of the yellow icings for piping details.
