This book was the best of the ones I found, so I got it. I had found 2 other fence books that were OK, but then I stumbled across this book. It has very good recommendations for designing and planning your fence.
It has a slew of picket fence designs in it. If you don't like any of the 20+ full sized picket patterns included with the book, there are several photos and drawings of dozens more. It is a very good design resource.
Pros: It has helpful step-by-step instructions for making all the fences pictured on the front and back cover. Plus, it includes even more fences and patterns for some really pretty and uncommon picket styles. I didn't find any book with more picket patterns than this book. I used one of these patterns to make my fence and it is the talk of the town.
Cons: I got this book from the library and the fold-out patterns had been torn out of the book. So, I needed to find another copy.
