If you’re just learning how to construct a fence, you might want to purchase prebuilt cedar fence sections to decrease cost, difficulty and build time. Such sections can be bought in many sizes, but 8-foot ones are the most frequent.
Here is listing of needed materials/tools and a cost estimate to give you an idea of the final price:
Cement mix ($2 to $5 per bag)
Poison ivy is most likely the most commonly known poisonous plant, as a result of the term “leaves of three, let it be,” but there are many more living dangers lurking in your lawn.
Plot your lawn and dig fence post holes
Begin with hammering temporary wooden stakes at each corner of the fence that is planned, and then wrap twine around and between each bet to make a template. If you are using 8-foot sections, indicate the floor every 8 feet. Make certain that the stakes and twine are where the outside of the fence will be.
Also stake out and mark the floor where every post will go.
Next, carefully dig each pole to about two feet deep with the hole digger or shovel. Be certain every hole is behind where the twine is to keep everything right. If a hole you dig is not in accord with others, your fence is going to be somewhat wonky.
Before the cement dries, make sure that one side of this post is flush with the twine, and then use the amount to maintain it vertically straight.
Continue this procedure until all posts are completed.
A fence, after all, keeps out people or blocks their view of a private yard, and as such it is not likely to elicit comments like “nice fence,” “love your fencing” and “great fence!” And yet these are exactly the comments we heard from dozens of passers-by and acquaintances of each age, ethnicity and gender from the as we built a wooden fence round a corner property in central Berkeley.
