In Edwardian style gardens the fencing of the house had to compliment the exterior architecture of the home. Balustrade is a decorative railing supported by baluster posts. A baluster is the single, vertical post; the balustrade is several balusters spaced evenly and connected together. Balustrades often added to the formality of the space and were reminiscent of the Italianate and neoclassical styles of the décor and ornamentation.
