Does wood fence need to be treated?
Fence posts must always be pressure-treated since they come into touch with the ground. If the wood does not get treated, it will decay faster as a result of this encounter with moisture and pests. Because pickets, or vertical boards of the fence, are above the ground and not in direct contact with it, they do not need to be treated. However, if you want to extend the life of your wooden fence and keep it from rotting prematurely, you can use a water-repelling sealant or stain on all sides of the pickets.
How far apart should posts be on a wooden fence?
The distance between fence posts should be six to eight feet on a 6-foot high wood fence. If you go beyond eight feet, the fence may not be strong enough.
Can I put a fence next to my neighbor's fence?
If you don’t want to do that, the next best option is to ask them to connect your new fence to it and obtain a simple agreement to safeguard yourself. You could also need a license or permission from your city/municipal/HOA depending on where you live.
How long does a wood fence need to dry before staining?
Is 2 feet deep enough for fence post?
The diameter of the hole should be three times the width of the post (i.e., a 4″ wood post should have a 12-inch-wide hole). The depth of the hole should be 1/3 to 1/2 of the fence’s height above ground (i.e., a 6-foot tall fence would necessitate a hole that is 2-3 feet deep). Posts set in concrete should always be deeper than 18 inches below ground.
