A classic picket fence look that separates the home from the street. Even though there is not a lot of room between the sidewalk and front porch, the picket fence and shrubs add its own appeal.

Couldn't pass this one up. Daisies are my favorite flower and work well with a picket fence.

A real charmer for the 4th of July, this picket fence provides a nice front for the shrubs and flowers.
