The Complete Guide to Items Needed for Installing Wooden Fences

Since you’ve all been asking for a complete guide, then I’ll give you a complete guide. First, we’ll be picking the easiest fence material that you can find and/or buy for building your own fence. That would be wood and a wooden fence always has a natural feel to it. In the old days, wooden fences remind you of the 18th-century houses in the rural United States. They always have wooden fences placed to mark their land and to prevent livestock from going out.

Wooden fences are indeed easier to install and cheaper compared to iron and vinyl fences. Because of its simplicity, you can actually install the fence yourself. If you’re not too confident with your handyman skills, then you can hire someone to do it for you. There are a lot of contractors who can install your fences for a minimal fee. But if you’re feeling up to the challenge, then you just need one willing volunteer as your assistant and the following tools:

  • Boards & Posts
  • Power Saw
  • Post Hole Digger
  • Paint or Outdoor Stain
  • Steel Tape
  • Marking Pencil
  • Small Axe or Hatchet
  • Gravel or Sand
  • Nails
  • Hand Saw
  • Hammer
  • Work Gloves
  • Level
  • Ready-Mix Concrete
  • Wood Chisel
  • Tamping Rod
  • Wood Preservative
  • Plumb bob

While this is not a complete list, these items are exactly what you’ll need to have an easier time installing those wooden fences. As a safety reminder, don’t forget to wear comfortable work clothes, gloves, and a pair of goggles while installing your wooden fence. The goggles will protect your eyes, as you’ll never what will suddenly fly out of nowhere from the wood or from the ground while you’re working. The gloves will prevent accidental scrapes and bruises while you’re working with the hammer and nails or cutting wood with a saw.
