Whether it's for backyard privacy, protection for vegetable gardens, or safety around a swimming pool, many homeowners choose to install a quality yet affordable wooden fence. Since fences come in various styles and materials, they can confuse even the savviest homeowners.
For example, the type of wood you use, including cedar, pine, treated wood, and redwood boards, will depend on the location and environmental conditions. You should also consider the amount of maintenance, such as staining, painting, pressure-washing the dirt away, and other upkeep you are willing to do.
Also, there are other materials to consider, including aluminum, vinyl, and even steel. However, nothing beats the natural beauty of wood fences to enhance your house and backyard space. Here's what you should know about wood fencing installation, a gate, posts, and the benefits a wood fence offers homeowners.
Eastern Fence Tongue & Groove white cedar fencing comes in 8 linear foot panels with a choice of 4 ft., 5 ft., or 6 ft. heights. Each panel is framed with 1" x 2" white cedar on both sides, while the thirty vertical boards in each section are a nominal 1" x 4".
Top off your "good neighbor" wooden fence with a 1 ft. x 8 ft. diagonal White Cedar Lattice topper. The lattice, vertical edge, and horizontal rails are all constructed of 1" x 2" white cedar and add a touch of class to your yard.
Our Eastern Fence Red Cedar Stockade Fencing, with either cedar or spruce back rails, offers the maximum privacy of 8 ft. long panels and your choice of 6 ft. or 8 ft. heights. The 28 pickets per section are molded nominal 3/4" x 4", and the horizontal rails in the back are nominal 2" x 3".
The top, mid, and bottom rails are double nailed, as are the end pickets, and the inside pickets are single-nailed. Complete the installation of the two styles of tongue-and-groove white cedar or red cedar picket sections with one of our square posts.
Consider these picket sections for your next wood fencing project:
The 5"x 5" Cedar Post is versatile and can be used on different types of projects, but in this case, we'll be recommending it as a wooden fence or gate post. The actual size of these bug and rot-resistant posts is 4-1/2" x 4-1/2", and they are available in 8 ft. and 10 ft. lengths.
Remember, your post will support the wood fencing components, so you should bury at least one-third of it in the ground for maximum stability and set the posts in concrete. You can protect your posts further by staining or painting them, and stained and painted posts tend to last longer.
The Diamond Cut 2-Rail Fence combines a historic design with a modern appeal. One section includes two 10 ft. long doweled-end cedar rails and two posts (line, corner, or end). Each post is bored for two rails and measures roughly 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 72" long, and the rail measures about 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" x 10 ft.
Like any other wood fencing, a quality paint or stain will block the effects of the sun, rain, and wind, resulting in better protection and longer life for the lumber.
The split rail fence is one of the standard styles dating back to early colonial days. Back then, settlers would install them to prevent farm animals from trampling their field. Today, Homeowners use the split rail fence to delineate property lines or to add a decorative touch.
You can build your split rail wood fence as a 2-rail or 3-rail using 11 feet-long poplar hardwood or pressure-treated rails. The corner, end, and line locust posts make it easy to design your wood fence in various ways.
Use our cedar full round 10-ft. horizontal rails with our 2-hole or 3-hole full-round posts. The tapered ends on the rails overlap inside the rail post. The rail diameters vary from 3-1/4" to 4-1/4" for a completely natural look that enhances a country, city, or suburban location.
The white cedar material is naturally rot and bug resistant, but this affordable wood fencing will last even more years by applying a paint or stain.
Our full round white cedar fence gates are fully built and ready to hang on one of our posts. You can provide access points for a full round rail or split rail fence, but you can use one wherever you need a gate.
Our cedar full round gates are available for 2-rail and 3-rail wood fencing. The 2-rail gate comes in 4-ft. and 5-ft. widths, while the 3-rail is available in 4, 5, and 6-ft. widths.
