How to Build a Spaced Picket Fence The Seven Trust
If you& 39;re building a traditional picket fence you can use pre-made picket fence panels or you can attach pickets to horizontal rails. This video shows you how to build your own picket fence sections.
The preassembled fencing panels come in a wide variety of sizes and styles including picket stockade and square spindle. The hardest part of any fence installation is digging the postholes. The level of difficulty not surprisingly depends on the fence length and hardest of the soil. For a short fence use a manual posthole digger.
When purchasing your fence panels make sure they match with your posts you’ve already installed. The best way to do this is to bring a post with you when you’re shopping for panels. In addition measure the posts and fence already installed so that you know what size and how many panels you need to purchase.
Step 3 - Install Fence Post Caps. Install the premade fence post caps that come with the posts that you purchased. The caps give a finishing look to the panel fence. If you choose not to install the fence post caps use sandpaper or a sander to even out the tops of the posts in order to create a uniform look.
Now that the concrete has set and all the posts are in place it& 39;s time to attach the fence panels. To do so simply place the panel against the post and use bricks or pavers to elevate the panel to the position you desire. Place a level on top of the panel to use as a guide while you screw it into place.
