Once you have figured out how big your fenced area will be, you will be able to purchase the materials needed to build your wooden fence. 


These items can include:


  1. A plan for your fence project
  2. Construct an outline of desired fence with stakes and string
  3. Pressure treated 4X4 fence posts 8 feet high
  4. 1X4-1X6 Cedar Pickets cut to length
  5. Post hole digger-manual and gas powered auger
  6. QuickCrete for Fence Posts 1 bag per post
  7. Pneumatic nailer & galvanized nails or coated decking screws (recommended)
  8.  Pre-built gate and hardware ( Unless you are building your own gate)
  9. Mason line
  10. Line level
  11. Post level
  12. Regular Level
  13. 2X4’s for railings or stringers

Total amount of materials needed will depend on the size of your project.
