This is because it cost less than other types of wood and will last a long time when it's exposed to the outdoor weather. A lot of people choose to go with cedar when building their fence because of the red color and how it holds up to the weather. What most people don't realize is that after a couple years, you can't hardly tell the difference between a pine fence and a cedar fence. They both turn to a grayish color and last around the same amount of time. The main difference between the two is the price of cedar is much higher. Cypress probably last the longest out of the three, but it can sometimes be hard to find, and it costs more than pine.

You can also experiment with different board widths or alternating board heights.

Be sure to use a high quality, heavy-bodied, oil based stain. The first application is the most important. To apply the stain do not use a garden sprayer or a roller as the stain will only rest on the surface of the wood. This will result in a fence that needs to be re-stained year after year. It is better to use a short (2 inches or less) thick-bristled brush. Using aggressive brush strokes work the stain into the wood. This does take a little more labor the first time. The brush will insure that the stain penetrates into the cells of the wood. When done properly the first year the fence will not need to be re-stained for up to five years. When the fence needs to be re-stained use a common garden sprayer.

There is no need to have a wood privacy fence with black stain lines going down from each of the screws. Use a string line, or a good eye, to make sure that the pickets are attached at the proper height. In most cases the wood pickets will shrink a little over time so it is often advisable to attach the pickets tight together with no gap in between.
