Fence question


Ok we give up what kind of fence?
How far above grade is the fence going to be at the bottom if it's wooden fence so it does not rot?
Going to be any post caps?

Fence question


real question is, how much should be below grade.
This will tell you what is left over above grade and if you need 8' or 10' post.
Of course it does also matter with what type of fence you plan to build.
Is this 6' vinyl or cedar .... or something else.
