Wood fencing can be crafted in so many ways and painted or stained any number of colors. Likely to last many years, a wood fence costs significantly less than vinyl or composite, at least initially, but its maintenance is more demanding.
This inexpensive fencing solution is constructed using only three parts: treated 4"x4" fence posts, treated 2"x4s and galvanized hog panels. No stretching is required and since there is no sideways pressure on the fence posts, stout corner bracing is unnecessary.
Cedar is the preferred wood for fence-building, because of its resistance to rot and insects. (In some regions, redwood is the top choice.) Both species may be left to weather naturally, but every few years, its wise to coat natural wood with a clear preservative.
