How Stain Cedar Fence
When you put one of the posts into place, you need to immediately fill in around it. You should start by putting some gravel around the base of it. At that point, you will also want to shovel some cement around the post as well. You can choose to keep the cement below ground level and put some dirt on top of the cement if you want. At that point, you need to allow the cement to dry and you can move onto the next post. Continue doing this until all of your posts are installed.

Standard rail, is heavier and generally straighter grained material. Works for everything pony weight does but has a more robust appearance and durability. About 40% more expense than pony weight but also a lot more wood.  Comes in 8′ and 10′ rail lengths and in 2 rail (3′ high) and 3 rail (4′ high). Corner posts, end posts and line posts.
Finish filling the hole with concrete. Build up the top an inch or two above ground level and slope it so water will drain away from the post. Let the concrete set overnight before attaching fencing to the post.
Before you started, you are going to want to plan everything out. Take your tape measure and measure the area that you plan on installing the fence in. You will also need to determine how far apart you are going to put the fence posts. After you have determined where you are placing the fence, you might want to place something next to the spot where you are going to put a hole as a marker. This will help you determine exactly how many cedar fence posts you need to purchase. You may also need to obtain a permit in order to build a fence depending on where you live. You should also call the utility companies so that they can come mark where the utility lines and pipes are.

How To Seal Cedar Fence
Make a mark on the bottom of the post to denote ground level. Starting 1 or 2 inches above that line, shave off the outer layer of sapwood from the lower portion of the post with a sharp axe or a drawknife. Remove the entire covering of white wood from the red heartwood core.
What is all the hub bub about Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Not to worry we have no plans to quit on any of the other great products we carry, but beginning in March we are building a program around this great wood. Somewhat hard to find, stronger than Western Red Cedar, more rot and insect resistant and super tough. The best part is it is about 30% less expensive when compared to Western Red Cedar. We are currently stocking full rough sawn Appearance grade in 2×4, 2×5, 2×6,2×8,2×10,2×12, 4×4, 4×6, 5×5, 6×6, 8×8 and 6x12sizes, In surfaced material we have 2×2, 2×4, 2×6, 4×4 and 6×6. Also kiln dried rougher header knotty 4×4 and surfaced 4×4-8′ clear. 2×5-12′ tng car decking and 2×6 12′ and 16′ tng car decking. 15/16″ x 4,6 and 8″ widths for fencing or just high quality cedar boards. The full dimension sizes allow us to re manufacture this material to other sizes and profiles and we will develop some stock sizes and patterns as well. Most recently we received what the mill calls low grade in 4×4 and 2×3, it is very reasonably priced, cheaper than pressure treated lumber at $1.00/ft for 4×4 and $ .40/ft for 2×3. Both are full dimension rough and with the rot resistance of yellow cedar perfect for garden use.
How To Keep Cedar Fence Looking New
Cut the fence post to the proper length with a circular saw, set it in the holder and plumb it with a level. Bolt it to the holder with half-inch galvanized steel carriage bolts that are long enough to extend through the posts and both prongs of the holder. Pre-drill holes for the bolts with a one-half-inch drill bit and tighten the nuts securely with a wrench.
Once the fence posts are ready, you are going to need to start digging the holes to put them in. For this process, you should have a post hole digger. With this tool, you can jab it down into the ground and then pull out the dirt where you want the hole. This is a great tool to have and it is essential if you are building a fence. You want to make the holes about 10 inches wide in most cases. This will give you plenty of room to put the posts in and fill in around them without making them too wide. You are going to want to make the holes deep enough so that you can get at least one third of the post down into the hole.

Why Cedar Fence
Cedar lattice panels are an alternative or an addition to a solid cedar board fence. Rough or smooth-sawn lattice is available pre-built in a choice of square or diagonal patterns in modular sizes to match the most common prebuilt fence panels and post spacings. A lattice fence offers less wind resistance than a solid fence and allows sunlight into shady garden areas. The degree of privacy is governed by the obscurity ratio of the latticework. Clear cedar lattice is one popular option but lattice manufactured from cedar with sound tight knots is both economical and good quality. Lattice made from 1″x2″ (25 mm x 51 mm) cedar is more sturdy and lasts longer than panels made from lath. When purchasing lattice, you should make sure that it is well-manufactured from good quality cedar of adequate thickness and that it has been correctly assembled. Heavier lattice panels are usually assembled with staples only and require no perimeter framing. Thinner lath lattice may be assembled with exterior-type glue and/or with staples. Lath lattice should be framed around its perimeter. The better quality lath lattice is stapled such that the crown of the staple is flush or counter-sunk in the wood and the points of the staple do not penetrate the face of the panel.
