If you are going to set up a wood fence, ensure that the lumber is sufficiently dried to prevent warping. Apply pressure-treated wood (particularly for posts, which are uncovered to high levels of moisture in the soil) or naturally moisture-defiant hardwoods like cedar. A special finish, like stain or paint, will be essential to safeguard the above-ground structure. Refrain from using galvanized nails if you’re close on a body of salt water. Set up fence posts not less than 3 feet deep, with tops cut at an angle, to facilitate them to cast off precipitation.
