Hi, I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village. Today we will show you how to build a privacy fence around your yard. So on a standard 6 foot privacy fence like this you would use the 4x4 treated post or you can also use a steel post. Which is also set in concrete in a hole you dugged similar to this one. A 6 foot privacy fence like this should last if properly maintained it can last a 100 years. If anyways it does provide a lot of privacy in a moderate cost and it is something you can do yourself. Just ensure you have the proper set back check with your zoning to make sure it is okay and wear gloves and eye protection. Have fun!
