Diagonal Lattice Topped Fence

This is a fence that will last 20 years the way it was built. In Burlington Ontario due to the great lakes there are more freeze thaw cycles and lots of precipitation. An untreated 4×4 red cedar post in the ground will last 15-20 years. Since this fence is 30 years old, they would have had to change the posts a decade ago…the gate posts might be there…and since we put the posts in, there are 3′ plugs of concrete in there that are not likely coming out.  These are just some of the things we do differently these days. Cedar posts get sealed before they go in the ground…and we never use 4×4 posts on a 6′ privacy fence. They just are not strong enough. All Cedar privacy fences get 6×6 posts.

Diagonal good neighbor fence in red cedar, Burlington ON.  This fence likely lasted 20 years, which means it is not there anymore. It lived across the street from Nelson High School in Burlington. These days we could make that fence last 30-40 years, but it would look a little different. Watch for our fence book being released soon– it will help you build better just like us!
