Instructions on installing your new fence!!
Study photo above and plan the height and design of your fence ahead of time.
Prime and paint, or stain and seal your posts if desired.
Sink poles in cement every 8 feet. Let posts and cement "set up" for 4 days before
Prime and paint (or stain and seal) your cross boards if untreated. Let dry.
Screw and nail cross boards at desired heights. Make sure you:
- place one cross board along the ground to prevent dog from getting under the fence
- one cross-board one near the top
- and one in the middle.
Use "fence staples" to secure wire fence to all boards. Don't skimp on the staples. Pull
wire tight as you secure it to the boards. Do not use regular staples. Fence staples are
different. See link...
You now have a beautiful wood fence for under $3 per linear foot, and your dog(s) are now
Note about Coyotes: If you have Coyotes near you, you can easily install a Hot-Wire at the
top and outside of our fence. A Coyote can smell the heat from the wire and will not attempt
to climb the fence.
