Hi! I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village and today we will show you how to build a privacy fence around your yard. Building materials which you will need for building your fence around your yard will be 4 x 4 posts. This is the first thing that you will need. These are 8 feet tall, 4 inches by 4 inches. This is pressured treated with pinta. It is a poison that makes the wood look green and this keeps termites from eating your wood and posts that you set into the ground. The next material that you need to purchase is bags of Redi Mix Cement. This is the type of cement you would be mixing up and putting your posts into. This cement is mixed with water in wheel barrel and you pour it into your hole with the post in it and that is how you set your post into concrete.
