FENCE TYPE: Treated wood
Pressure- and chemically-treated hardwood pickets or cedar-style planks are a favorite go with for outdoor constructions as a whole–gazezbos, decks, pergolas, and more–and constructed as a fence, they give personal privacy at a wallet-friendly cost. While this less expensive fencing option is a perfect choice for fence articles inserted in the bottom (treated lumber resists both pests and wetness), its fence pickets tend to warp or twist as quickly as you month after assembly. For best shot at a warp-free results, handpick out the planks independently from your neighborhood lumberyard somewhat than having them shipped in bulk. Search for the straightest planks and neglect any that look “green,” or wet, which could show they recently originated from the maker and will move as they dried.
Maintenance Idea: Seal or coloring treated solid wood for an improved look, and replace warped planks as needed.
