Versatile, durable and low-maintenance, treated-wood fences are extremely popular. They’re easy to build, can be completed over the weekend, and don’t require specialized tools aside from the posthole auger. Digging holes and pouring cement is physically demanding, however. Fence posts are buried in the ground and the holes are then filled with stone dust or concrete.
Before you begin, bring your neighbors up to speed and check local bylaws concerning fence installations.
