Most wood fences are spaced 8 feet between fence posts. This isn't for a structural purpose, although 8 feet provides enough support for a wooden fence. Dimensional lumber is usually available in 8 or 16 feet lengths, so having posts 8 feet apart means less cutting and wood waste.
A picket fence no taller than four feet would fall on the low end of that price range, while a six-foot privacy fence would fall on the high end. Decorative features such as a scalloped top add about $2 per linear foot.
For a 6-foot high, 209-yard privacy fence 5 with a gate, concrete posts, and removal of the old fencing, the cost for materials is between $8 and $18 per linear foot. Labor costs, if charged hourly, are between $25 and $50 per laborer.
There was approx. 400 linear feet of fence before I took it down. We took down our fence and have hundreds of 4ft x 6" cedar panels in good condition. Additionally, there are a lot of cedar furring strips and 2x4's.
We're about ready to start a FENCE build. We're going to dig 2' deep fence post holes and set them with Fence Post 'cement'. But were curious whether there is a "standard" that shold be used for the distance BETWEEN each Fence Post?
Most fence installation pros dig post holes one foot deep into the earth for the chain-link posts, they fill that post hole with concrete, then pound the post into the still wet concrete with a special tool to provide the strength and rigidity that pole needs to hold the chain link taut between posts.
