Suggested reads about Picket Fencing services

What do picket fencing services include?

Picket fencing installation services generally include the entire process, from marking the fenced area to hanging up the gate. This covers bringing the necessary tools for the job. 

Some Taskers may offer related services, such as purchasing the materials from the hardware store on your behalf, talking with utility companies to make sure they don’t hit your water or power lines, and even processing the building permits. When it comes to the actual installation process, this is how it will usually go for each project:

Digging the post holes

Once utility lines have been marked, and the property line has been defined, your Tasker digs a 25 cm (10 inch) diameter hole with a shovel. They'll dig as deeply as possible without hitting any wires, pipes, or lines. After they hit around 81 cm (32 inches), they'll start setting the first post. 

Next, the fence installer adds 20 cm (8 inches) of soil and ensures the post is level. They'll pack the bottom of the post with soil using a tamping bar and then add 20 cm more soil. They'll do this until the entire hole is filled, making sure that the post stays level. Finally, the fence installer uses a mason's line to measure and position the corners of the fence. 

Setting the post holes

Your Tasker then slides the panel's rales into the first post's mortises, adjusting until the top rail is level. If the post has no mortises, the installer props the panel up so that the bottom is 5 to 12 centimetres off the ground and the top rail is level. They'll check if each side is level, then screw the rails to the post.  

Your fence installer proceeds to check the gaps between pickets and between a picket and post. Next, they'll fill in the post holes and ensure that each part is level and plumb. Finally, they'll secure the rail with screws. Afterwards, they'll repeat this step until all the fence panels have been secured. 

Setting up the gate

The first gate post is installed pretty much like the first fence post. Your Tasker then measures the gate's width, adds around 4 cm, then digs the hole for the second gate post. Just like with the fence posts, they'll fill the hole, tamp it with soil, then check that the post is level and plumb. 

Picket panel installation

After this, they'll install the fence panel on the side of the second gate post to stabilise it. Then, the installer uses wedges to level the gate. After lining up the pickets and leaving a two-inch gap between the gate and post, they'll hang the gate and screw on the hinges. After checking the gate swing, they'll put on the latch and nail caps to the post tops. And that's it! You can now do a quality check on your new picket fence, then send the Tasker on their way.

Hammering in circa 80 x 2.4m star pickets

$200

Tamborine Mountain QLD, Australia

14th May 2019

I am wanting to suspend irrigation above fruit trees and need someone to hammer in star pickets. I want the pickets positioned circa 75cm from each tree, set so that they are true vertical and maintaining 2 metres of height from which to suspend the irrigation. If you have fencing experience this would be a very straight forward task for you! The pickets and a picket hammer/mallet will be provided though if you have access to a motorised picket driver this would make the task easier. A ladder can also be supplied but if you have your own platform ladder you may prefer to use it. I will be onsite and happy to assist. I am offering payment per picket (i.e. $2.5 per picket solo or $2.0 per picket with my assistance), which is relatively easy money for the task at hand. I am in the process of sourcing pickets currently and the timing of the work is flexible though it will need to be done on a weekend.

Remove star picket / wire fencing

$150

Bonogin QLD, Australia

15th Mar 2021

I havn't measured it, but I'd say around 200 metres in length, over several runs. It's been wet, so an ideal time to do the job. We are moving out and I've just had surgery, otherwise I'd do it myself, but having said that, I'm time poor. Job is for removal of posts & coiling of the long lengths of wire - the stretchers can be cut off and put in a box, with the rest to be taken away and disposed of by the tasker. We wish to keep the posts, longer lengths of wire, and stretchers.

Absolutely outstanding. Very nice guy, worked his socks of getting this done for us, would not hesitate in recommending. Prompt, fast, polite and with a can do attitude - very very happy - thanks Zayvian

Fencing - star picket and wire

Tallebudgera Valley QLD, Australia

22nd Feb 2021

Need done ASAP We need someone to install a wire and star picket fence to contain goats. It’s on acreage property in Tallebudgera. It’s a steep slope / difficult terrain so will be a bit harder work. We have about 30 1.8m star pickets but if you can organise the rest of the materials that would be awesome. We worked out it would be about $1000 for materials. It’s about 90-120m of fencing. Probably be best to come out and have a look. We’re happy to pay for materials and pay $45 an hour or you can quote the whole job.
