    Nice job! I’m going to be helping a niece and her hub with a fence soon,
    and this was very timely. One question – what type of material did you
    use for the screws that hold the pickets to the rails? I did a fence in
    southern California about 9 years ago, and have had good luck with
    stainless screws. Only drawback I found was that they’re brittle and won’t
    take excessive torque. FYI – McFeely’s has a great assortment of sizes on
    stainless, as long as you like square drive. Thanks!.

    I don’t build a fence anymore without putting a block retainer under it
    with galvanized standoffs. In my experience, if you set a wood post,
    treated or not, in concrete, you shorten it’s life. A little gravel at the
    bottom of the hole (couple inches) and pack the dirt back in after it(set
    at least 2 feet deep for a 6 foot high fence). Whenever I pull a fence post
    set in concrete, the wood that is beyond the bottom is good, and all the
    wood inside of the concrete is rotten. That said, I’ll still set my gate
    posts in concrete but gravel the bottom of the holes and house wrap the
    bottoms of the posts.I seem to get more years out of them that way. Pretty
    much all I do is dig retaining walls and build fences, so take what I say
    for what it’s worth. I DO like the fence hole drill! I haven’t used one of
    those. I’ve used the clam shell a lot. I’m in sand where I live now so
    neither one is much use. Just driving them in is best if they’re not going
    to be set on a standoff in a retaining wall.

    Shannon, omg! I wish this video would have come out one week earlier. I am
    80% complete building a fence for my pool, to protect my grand children.
    Like Lil D in my pic. As usual, your vids are very helpful. Maybe I can fix
    some of my iffy area’s from watching your vid. Thanks

    I have a pre-existing fence I would like to replace. The posts are in
    concrete. How would I easily remove them without using a jack hammer so I
    can basically start over ?

    Thanks for the video, the content and information provided is excellent.
    And that was a good project, huh Shannon? Working outdoors on a nice day,
    under a tree, can’t beat it.
