Place fence posts 

Before you begin building a new fence, it’s important to choose the right posts. You should use posts that are long enough to support the height and depth of your fence. To determine this length, measure the height of the top wire above ground level and add six inches. You can also purchase steel posts that range in length from five to eight feet. However, they’re not as sturdy and resistant to bending as wooden ones. To avoid bending and other problems, place fence posts every 50 to 75 feet. 

Install pickets 

If you want to make a fence section removable, you can install pickets on it first. You should install them so that they are 1/4 in. apart and have rough and smooth sides. It’s important to space these out to ensure even spacing. 

Avoid sagging panels 

One of the best ways to avoid sagging panels is to use horizontal 2x4s or 2x6s between fence posts. This helps keep the panels level, but be sure not to use cheap horizontal materials. The horizontal posts should be at least eight feet apart. 

Avoid sagging fence panels 

To avoid sagging fence panels, build posts with two-by-four or two-by-six lengths. The posts should be a minimum of eight feet apart, but not more. Also, make sure to buy dimensional lumber in 8 or 16-foot lengths. Do not buy lumber that is shorter than this because it will result in panels that sag.
