This 6" wood fence will ensure your privacy outside while still letting in air and light. Each panel is 72" wide.
The fence is easy to build and requires very few materials, since the boards are simply inserted into grooves made in the posts.
We suggest you use metal stakes to secure the 6" posts, because they make it easier to position the posts accurately and adjust if necessary. Another option would be to use 10? fence posts and set them in concrete form tubes.
