A pvc fence adds privacy and classic style to any outdoor space. Follow these steps to put in a wooden fence in your own yard.
Determine Spacing for Fence Posts
Decide how far apart you’d wish to set the fence posts. Typically, fence posts are spaced between six and eight feet apart. The corner posts are set first. To align all of the posts in between, stretch a line from each post to figure as your guide. Mark the precise position where you’d like each post hole dug.
Prepare Holes and Posts
When setting the fence posts, confirm about 1/3 of every post is buried within the ground. This helps the posts endure heavy weight and high winds. To dig the post holes, use a post hole digger. For the section of the wooden posts which will be buried within the ground, use a wood preservative to guard the wood from rotting and breaking down over time.
Place two to 3 shovel scoops of gravel at rock bottom of every post hole before placing the post into position. Use A level to form sure the post is plumb. After the posts are properly aligned, brace each post with stakes. With the posts aligned, fill the opening with dir, tamping the bottom at the post base to pack the dirt. take care to not disturb the post alignment during the tamping process.
Attach Rails to Fence Posts
Install a bottom and top rail to connect to the fence posts. during this project, we used a “butt joint” to secure the rail to the body of the post instead of the highest of the post. A “butt joint” may be a basic wood joint where the ends of the rails are aligned, placed together then secured. make certain to live that the highest and bottom rails are perfectly aligned.
Install Fence Boards
In this project, we installed an easy board fence. This style allows those sitting inside the patio area to ascertain a seamless, vertical look. At one among the fence post corners, fix the primary board. Use a carpenter’s level to make sure the board is vertical and nail it into place. At another fence post corner, fix another board into place. Place a balkline to the highest of both boards. Place another board against the primary board. Nail it into place and repeat this action until all boards are installed. Every 10th board approximately, check to make certain they’re plumb and adjust accordingly.
