Picket Fence


This is how my husband and I made the picket fence. I stained the wood while he cut and nailed it up.


First we laid out the curves using a plastic hose. Next we hammered in pressure treated posts about every four feet. Then we nailed a 2-inch pine strip along the bottom.


Next we nailed another pine strip along the top of the posts.


To finish it off, we nailed 2-inch wood wide slots vertically with a 1-inch space in-between.


I trimmed the bushes and the trees.


It seems like the ducks like their home.


The little tikes house is where the ducks go for the night.


The ducks enjoy the waterfall. I love seeing them from my kitchen window.


Our ducks make great pets!


Here is how we built the pond.

I love ducks. We have a pond behind our house and ducks wake me up every morning. They make me laugh with their quacking. Nice work on the fence and I like that you curved it.

Oh my goodness, I LOVE your fence... it's so charming and it curves!! I had ducks when I was a kid; I loved them. They used to swim in our little pond. I used to make an arch with the water from the garden hose and they'd line up to get sprayed!!

I love everything on this post! We are considering getting a few chickens and ducks- for egg laying. The picket fence is awesome, especially with the water feature. I'm having a pet portrait give away- (I've never drawn a duck portrait- bet it would be cute)! Stop by and check it out. Michelle

Dee your curving picket fence is so charming. You and your DH are such a great pair and get alot of great projects done. How fun to have your own ducks. Love their little house but really love their upscale fence. What style they have. rj

I'd never have thought to curve a picket fence, its lovely! We used to have pet ducks, they're so much fun, esp when they play in the water. Visiting you from French Country Cottage's linky party.
