In high wind areas six foot centers may be necessary. The diameter of the hole for a fence post is recommended to be 3 times larger than the diameter of the post itself. Make sure that the hole goes down below the frost-line. The frost-line can vary anywhere from 0" to 48" depending on location. All fence posts should be set in concrete. Fill the hole with concrete that has the consistency of thick oatmeal. Slide the post down into the concrete making sure that the post is plumb. Fence posts are normally set two feet deep into the concrete. A string line can be used to insure that the posts are at the correct height. Or, the posts can be set high and then cut to the correct height after the concrete has set.

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.

If the posts are not set correctly or are set out an angle or offset slightly the end results will be very noticeable in the Esthetic of the fence. Be sure to double and triple check your measurements before committing to digging your post holes. You need to be sure that you have even spacing of the post holes in that you have accounted properly for any intrusions such as the gate on the fence. Also you must consider the length of material that you'll be using for the rails or stringers in the fence. The rails of the fence are the horizontal pieces that you attach the fence boards themselves to. If you put the post holes too far apart the stringers will not be long enough to reach from one post to the next. This is one of the most major problems that you certainly want to avoid when installing your own fence. The spacing for your fence posts should be equal so that is a quick and easy way to double check your spacing but nothing is a substitution for proper measurement with the correct tools.
