A wood post will use more concrete than a steel post does. The hole for a fence post should be three times the diameter of the post itself. This means that a wood 4 x 4 post requires a hole that is 12 inches in diameter while a steel post needs only a 6 inch diameter hole. And, the hole needs to go below the frost-line which can be up to four feet deep. A wood post should also have gravel below the concrete to allow for water drainage. When the cost of the post, the concrete and the gravel is added together the total price of a wood post may be more than that of a steel post. And then of course there is the additional labor of digging a bigger hole and disposing of all that dirt.

This is to protect small children and animals from wandering in and drowning, which homeowners are liable for.

You'll hear the expression 'pressure treated pine' used often, but realize that process does not exempt the wood from potential damage from insects or weather. Pressure treating will help limit the breakdown of the wood, but additional sealers and periodic painting or staining are needed to extend the fence's lifespan and keep it's appearance from deteriorating. In almost any neighborhood, you can see fencing that has a driftwood gray hue. That's pressure treated pine that wasn't sealed and painter (or stained) after installation. Ideally, you'll seal your pine fencing and then paint or stain it every two years or as needed.

This fence starts out like a basic privacy fence that has approximately 2" wide gaps between each picket rather than them being butted together. In addition to having pickets on the outside of the fence, there's also pickets on the inside of the fence that are spaced approximately 2" apart as well. The gap between the pickets on the inside of the fence are lined up with the center of the pickets on the outside of the fence so that you can't see straight through the fence. There's boards (usually 2"x4" in size) that run between the pickets on the outside and the inside of the fence. This causes the fence to have a shadow effect.
