In the Northwest, you will often see wood fences made from cedar planks, with pressure treated 4×4 posts (often Doug fir) to support them. Cedar is naturally resistant to rot, so will last for quite a while even without staining. Pine can also be used, and redwood is a premium fencing material.
Fence installation costs depend on several factors, including length of the fence, number and size of gates, height of the fence, angles, current cost of lumber, and more. You can expect to spend around $15 per foot for materials, not including labor. The best way to estimate a fencing job is to schedule a free quote.

That depends on your budget, and what you’re hoping for in terms of privacy. A 6 foot tall fence is pretty standard and restricts most eyes from looking in. When it comes to wood fencing, you will also want to consider the design of the fence and how prone the wood you’re using is to losing knots with time.
Wood fences do cost more, but are preferred in most residential contexts for their aesthetic appeal and greater ability to create a private feel. Keep in mind that they will require more maintenance in the long run, as well.
Absolutely! Especially a well-designed and well-built wood fence. When it’s well-maintained, it’s hard to beat the feel that you get from a wood fence.
Certainly. But with any job, you always want to count the cost before you begin in terms of money as well as in terms of other investments you’ll need to make. Do you have the tools? The experience? The time? The help? These are all things you’ll need to pull off when making a great fence.
Usually the answer is no, but there are some exceptions. Contact your local government’s planning department to learn more. If you are thinking of rebuilding a shared fence, talk with your neighbor to settle up who will be footing the bill, to settle any disagreements over whose fence it is, and to decide on a style that will be satisfactory all around.
