Decorative Top Kits

Our Outdoor Essentials® decorative top kits come in two styles – Lattice Top and Baluster Top. Each kit includes a 1 ft. x 6 ft. preassembled top panel and a 6 ft. decorative bottom rail. The top panel comes, you guessed it, fully assembled. You don’t need to cut any extra wood or insert any balusters. We do that work for you. We also trim the bottom rail to 6 ft. to match the length of the top panel.

Both components in the kit – preassembled top panel and decorative bottom rail – are made of pressure-treated wood for long-lasting performance. The Lattice Top panel is all wood. The Baluster Top panel features a wood border with powder-coated black aluminum balusters.

The top panel and bottom rail have a slotted groove to accept 5/8-in. pickets. This is beneficial for two reasons:

  1. You don't need to screw every picket into the rail. Simply slide the pickets into the grooves.
  2. You won't need any backer rails to support this panel. The pickets are held securely in the grooves.

To create a 6 ft. x 6 ft. semi-privacy panel, we recommend using our 5 ft. tongue-and-groove pickets with our decorative top kits. Our pickets were specifically designed to work with these kits.

Our decorative top kits are available at a variety of retailers. Check out where to buy below.
