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.

The concrete will require a month to reach its full strength. You can begin to work with the concrete in as little as 24 hours after placement given decent weather. In very cold weather allow at least 48 hours before resuming the remainder of the fence building project. During warmer weather or in the summer you can plan to be building the remainder of the fence 24 hours after pouring the concrete posts in place. As part of the post setting process it is critically important that you take the time to set up supports for your fence. If you do not set up supports for the fence the fence posts may slip out of plumb during the concrete curing process. If this happens you will come back the following day to discover that your fence posts are no longer plumb and square. This would require the removal and resetting of the fence posts. This is something that you want to most certainly avoid so taking the extra time to set up a system to hold your posts perfectly in place is a great idea.

Homeowners typically use pressure treated 4x4 posts or galvanized steel posts, pressure treated 2x4s for the fence rails, and pine or cedar wood for the pickets. Many options exist - usually at additional cost - to change the aesthetics of the fence appearance including upgrading the wood grade and application of stains or sealants to beautify and protect the wood for longer life.

Many people think it is acceptable to pour dry concrete into a post hole and then add water. This is not an acceptable way to mixed concrete. Concrete needs to be mixed thoroughly prior to placing and the amount of water that is used is of a critical importance to the overall strength of the mix. You should use at the minimum bagged concrete specifically made for post holes or general use applications or ideally mixing your own concrete using the 321 mix. The 321 mix is a very common concrete mix that includes 3 parts of gravel, 2 parts of sand and 1 part of concrete. The gravel is usually half inch in diameter in the sand is a sharp washed masonry grade sand. The type of concrete used for this mix would be called either type N, type 10 or type 1 depending on where you are located. All three of these concrete brands are exactly identical and the name changes only depending on where you are located. When mixing this concrete together you want to use the minimum amount of water necessary to achieve the desired placement thickness.
