Pressure treated vs pre-stained fence
Guys, going to install a fence soon and not sure what to go with. Going for low cost, but not pine. Is it better to have pressure treated wood or pre-stained wood?

Here are my options:

Let me know what you think, I'd love to get this done this weekend and any input is appreciated!

Also, looking at this one, does pressure treated negate the pine mixed into this panel?

Personally, I love the look of stained wood, but I'd want it to last. I would get pressure-treated or cedar and then stain it.

I would opt for the the PT as it will generally last longer. You can also paint or stain PT if wish too.
