Vinyl Fence Installation


I am getting ready to install a fence between me and the idiot next door. I live in Central IL. Our house is at the end of town and has a corn or bean field across the street. There is also a wind farm a mile away. I would like to put up one of those vinyl fences they sell at Menards but am concerned about the wind factor. I have also been told that if a person would hit it with the weed wacker, lawn mower, or a thrown rock it will damage the fence and post. Has anyone else had any experience with this type of fence. Would you recommend a wood shadow box fence?

Just use total vegetation killer at the base of the fence.
Depends on how it's built and how cheap the fence is made if wind will be a factor.

Vinyl Fence Installation


I intend to use a 10' 4x4 post with 4' in the ground surrounded by 120# of Sakrete. The guy next door has basically a junk yard and is contantly throwing rocks, etc with his mower, what do you know about rocks putting a hole in the fence. I don't want to put up a 120' fence and then have holes in it. The fence is called Belmonte and is sold at Menards
