The wooden fence carries a lot of artwork and classical methodology, which creates an ambience of luxury and crafty outlook. Just in case you happen to see a house in one of the posh localities of your place, you can not help noticing the elegant wooden fencing covering the boundaries of that house.

As a basic rule, the wooden planks which are to be used in the fencing should be kept at least 6" to 8" apart. This also depends on the type of terrain and the purpose of the fencing. Setting up of the two extreme posts is the next step. Mark the full stretch of the land with regular intervals of 6" to 8", where you can fit in the planks in the post hole. Devote some time for the proper setting up of the poles, as the final result can depend on this factor alone.
