Picket fences may be of any height but, since they are not typically chosen for privacy, they are usually 3 to 4 feet tall. They are most commonly made of wood.
The total cost of a basic wooden picket fence is $2,300 to $4,600 per ¼ acre (around 209 linear feet). Using a higher quality wood such as white oak, or black locust will increase the material price by 20%-50%. PVC and aluminum fencing are both more expensive initially ($5,225 to $8,360 per 1/4 acre), but have longer lifespans and require less maintenance than wood fencing.
Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
