Wood fence is an economic way to add a decorative boundary or privacy to your property. Our
wood fence is custom built on site. We call it “stick” building, meaning we put it together piece by piece on
site. This is a stronger fence than a pre-built panel fence and will look like it was tailor made specifically
to fit on your property. Once installed, your fence will last 10 to 15 years without any maintenance, however,
water sealing or painting/staining will prolong the life of your fence. Our posts, runners/stringers (horizontal
boards), and pickets (vertical boards) are typically pressure treated white pine, but other types of wood are
available, such as Cypress.
Board on board
This is complete privacy and is normally 4’ tall or
6’ tall. There are 2 layers of pickets attached to the runners/stringers. The first layer is attached
leaving a 2” space between each picket.
The second layer covers the 2” space left on the first layer. There are no gaps
when the pickets contract and expand due to weather conditions.
This style is normally 4’ tall or 6’ tall. There is
only one layer of pickets attached to the runners/stringers. They are attached tightly
together at the time of install, but when the pickets contract and expand due to weather conditions a small gap
will appear between the pickets.
We consider this a “neighbor - friendly” fence because both sides appear finished. This style
is normally 4’ tall or 6’ tall. There is one layer of pickets on each side of the fence. The pickets on one side are
spaced 2”-3” apart and on the other side the pickets are placed where the spaces were
can see through the fence if you look at it from an angle, but looking at it straight on you can not see
through it. This leaves the runners/stringers somewhat exposed on each side of the fence, which also allows
for some airflow.
Mainly used as boundaries for small children or
small animals and as decorative fencing.
Picket fence is normally 4’ tall. The pickets are attached to the
runners/stringers leaving a space that is less than 4”. This style can add a lot of
character to your home.
all styles of wood fence:
Concave or convex top treatment
Decorative post tops or caps
Single Swing Walk-Through Gates
Standard widths are 4’ – 5’ wide. The gates are
custom built on site using a wood frame.
Metal frames are also available and are required for gates over 5’wide. Concave
and convex top treatments for gates make for a nice entrance appearance. Gate latches, handles and
hinges are stainless steel powder coated black. Gate latch can be locked using
a pad lock.
Double Swing Drive-Through Gates
Standard widths are 8’ wide (two 4’ wide sections),
10’ wide (two 5’ wide sections), and 12’ wide (two 6’ wide sections). We recommend using metal frames
on all double swing drive-through gates. 4” x 6” x 10’ or 6” x 6” x 10’ gate posts will be used for gates 10’
wide and over. Concave and convex top treatments for gates make for a nice entrance
appearance. Gate latches, handles, drop rods (to hold double gates open) and hinges are stainless steel
powder coated black. Gate latch can be locked using a pad lock.
*If you have a commercial lawn service you will
want to verify that their equipment will fit through one of those openings before committing to a gate
We start by digging the holes and setting 4” x 4” x 8’ posts on 8’
centers. Then we fill the hole with approximately 60 lbs. of dry bagged concrete and top it off with
the remaining dirt from the hole.
The concrete will set in 24 – 48 hours from the moisture that is already in the
ground. Next, the 2” x 4” x 8’ runners/stringers (the horizontal boards) are attached to the posts using 3
hot dipped galvanized ring shank nails per each end that is attached to the post (6 per
board). Finally, the ½” x 4” x 6’ or 5/8” x 4” x 6’ dog-eared pickets (vertical boards) are
attached to the runners/stringers using the same hot dipped galvanized ring shank nails. Six nails are used to attach
the picket to the runner – 2 on the top runner, 2 on the middle runner and 2 on the bottom
runner. Typically your fence will be level on the top verses following ground level, unless there
is a specific reason for following the contour of the ground, like keeping a small dog in. The extra dirt accumulated
from digging the holes will be raked along the bottom of the fence line.
