Fence installed on the ground??
I am concerned, I contracted with a small fence contractor to install 200 feet of fence on my property. The fence consists of posts and rails with boards set on either side of the rails.
My concern is that even though he used pressure treated lumber throughout setting the post in concrete, the 80% of the vertical boards are in contact with the ground. I feel that I don't care what the boards are treated with, they should not be in contact with the ground. The water will wick up into the wood. I am right?:(
