Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ninjamon Not to bad for the Price
Purchased about 650 Pickets online for a 310 ft fence. Picked up the pickets which were wrapped together with steel on 3 pallets at my local Home depot. When I finally got to open them most were good shape about 30 or so were warped or had mold on them took them back for good ones. All in all fence came out great used screws to hold pickets in place so it would last.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeramie picketts work great for slopes
I really hate the look of 8 foot panels stair stepped up slopes, leaving gaps on one end for animals to get in and dogs to escape.
Prevent this by building the fence yourself. it will be stronger with 2x4s cross sections anyway. i had 320 feet to build and bought 690 pickets, 120 2x4s, 44 posts, 22 80lbs quickcrete, 480 3in deck screws, 4,140 1 & 5/8in deck screws, 1 gate kit, 44 solar post caps, and will wait till fall to stain it after all the pressure treated wood is completely dried.
i put up all my posts first then all the 2x4s with the top 2x4 6in from the top picket and the bottom one 6in from the ground with the center one obviously dead center. spend extra time making sure your posts are level and the 2x4s are exactly where they need to be.
i did trim the bottoms of many pickets in order to keep the top level and exactly 6 inches from the top 2x4.
i made a simple guide to keep my pickets perfect on the top. the guide was about 3 feet long by 1 inch wide and rested on the top of the pickets with 4 legs that came down exactly 6 inches. when the back 2 legs rested on the top 2x4, i would adjust my picket to barely hit the guide, screw the board in and on to the next.
i didn't gap any of my pickets because they were all pretty wet still. 1 month later and they are gapping themselves nicely as they dry.
the pickets work great.
btw, for the pickets that needed trimmed to stay the correct height, i just flipped the pickett upside down, and marked the bottom of the pickett with an extra board that I extended over on my guide to multi-purpose the guide as a way to measure for the extra amount of the picket that needed trimmed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mife Excellent buy
The product we got from The Home Depot is great and very affordable. It was priced just right and we were able to finish our fence in a very short amount of time. It was very easy to assemble and the components are top quality with a great finish. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AmyW Great value per linear foot! Especially bulk purchase.
No pre-drilling holes because it doesn't split when you screw through it. Made putting my fence up very easy. If you add up the cost of a 3-1/2" picket, this covers more for less money in total. It's a great value and looks better than the 3-1/2" picket. Once ours dries out, we plan to stain & seal so it will look like cedar.

The pockets worked great. like the contrast in color and wood grain . looks great. and most importantly, the wife loves it. scored major brownie points . good product. but you must hand pick your pickets for best results.

I found directions online for making raised garden beds using fence pickets. They came out looking good. I have added more beds since.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJS405 This product was ideal solution
I reconstructed the back fence using these pressure-treated pickets. Since my house sits on a cul-de-sac, it was not an easy job. The length required 438 individual pickets and the steepness of the creek bank made using complete panels practically impossible. But the individual pickets are light weight and I managed the job by myself. I recommend these pickets to anyone who needs to build a strong, good-looking fence and would like to do the job by themselves.

We needed a fence to support our new blackberry bushes so my wife came up with this. I re-cut the dog ears to Gothic style just for looks. Fence is very light weight and easy to handle. Took about one Saturday to complete.
