Picket-style fencing are a natural fit for Cottage-style homes and Landscape designs like English cottage gardens. Additional wood fencing styles include:

They have the look of a full containment fence but also allow more air circulation.

Solid – The solid style, when used as containment fencing, allows for complete privacy. It is commonly used to surround swimming pools and between property lines. It may also be used to hide ugly areas or to hide a major road from sight. These fences are generally 4′-6′ tall and use very closely-spaced pickets which may vary in style. The styles may be a basic dog-ear style to a pointed top or more elaborate design. Solid board fence, board on board fence, solid board convex, solid board concave.

Spaced Picket – This is best for keeping children and/or pets in a defined boundary while giving a distinctive look and aesthetic appeal. These fences are generally shorter, 4′ tall or less, and don’t completely block the surrounding view. Styles include: gothic picket, spaced picket convex, spaced picket with self latching and self closing gate, and spaced picket pool code.
