When the issue of permits is settled, you can get on with building your fence.

  1. Prepare the ground for the fence.

Clear the grounds and general area the vinyl fence is to be installed. Ensure that the ground and general area is smooth to make the process as easy as possible. Clear all obstructions including bushes, plants, trees or stationary objects that are in the way of your planned fence.

  1. Measure the area.

You need to have the right measurement of the area you want to fence off or the perimeter of your property if it’s a yard fence. The measurement allows us to know how much fencing materials and accessories that you would require.

You can place stakes at the corner of the areas, use them to rope off the area. They can also serve as measurement assist if you have needed help.

  1. Purchase the vinyl fencing and posts for the area.

You can purchase vinyl fencing in lengths that range from 2 to 8 feet (0.6 to 2.4 m). These lengths you place between vinyl fence posts. If you are fencing a very large area, purchase larger sections so you can bury fewer fence posts.

Your material should be about one inch (2.5 cm) thick, four inches (10 cm) wide, and four to six feet (1.2 - 1.8 m) long. You will also need two 12 in (30 cm) wooden stakes and four screws for temporary bracing.

Make sure you also get enough concrete for each post.

If you need an entry point along the fence, it's also important to purchase a vinyl gate kit that fits with the fencing you choose.

  1. Mark each post location and layout sections

When you get your fence materials, physically on-site mark each post and layout the sections to be sure that you've got the right amount of material and the right fit, depending on your design.

  1. Dig and install post first.

Dig holes for your fence posts. Use either a power auger or a hand post-hole digger to dig holes that are 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter. Post holes should be deep enough to hold 1/3 the length of your post, plus 6 more inches for a gravel base.

Place the fence posts one at a time. Once you've dug the holes for the posts, the next step is to install each post securely before connecting them with the vinyl sections. Always defer to the manufacturer's instructions for installation, but generally, its recommended to install posts secured with gravel and concrete.

Check to make sure each pole is plumb using a level, before moving on to the next post hole. Continue installing all the posts and return to the beginning and make sure it's seated level again.

Use a trough to scrape any excess concrete away from the posts so that the concrete slopes down away from the pole. This prevents water from pooling around the pole.

  1. Install the vinyl fence sections between each post.

Generally, vinyl fence sections snap right into place. Follow the specific manufacturer's directions regarding vinyl fence sections, as some may slide halfway into the post. Attach the rails to the ends of each section with screws, if necessary, and then secure the rails to the posts in the ground.

Pre-drilling a pilot hole before installing your rail screws can be helpful and may be necessary.

Attach the vinyl post tops with the hardware provided. Again, defer to the manufacturer's instructions. Generally, most vinyl fence kits will come with decorative toppers for the posts that you can snap on.

When the issue of permits is settled, you can get on with building your fence.

Follow the steps below to get started;

  1. Identify your property line.

Building your fence in the wrong place can attract dire consequences. Ensure you know the right boundaries and that you are building on them. It is safe to assume that all issues regarding permits should have been wealth with at this point.

  1. Prepare the ground for the fence.

Clear the grounds and general area the cedar wood fence is to be installed. Ensure that the ground and general area is smooth to make the process as easy as possible. Clear all obstructions including bushes, plants, trees or stationary objects that are in the way of your planned fence.

  1. Determine the type of fence you want and measure the area

Consider the purpose of setting up the fence and let that help you determine the type of fence you need. Knowing what you will help a great deal with knowing what materials to purchase.

Take appropriate measurements of the area. You can rope poles set up at the edges of the area to help with measurement. Use brightly-colored string or yarn that’s easy to see so you can survey the prospective fence line from every part of your property.

  1. Mark each post location and layout sections

When you get your fence materials, physically on-site mark each post and layout the sections to be sure that you've got the right amount of material and the right fit, depending on your design.

  1. Dig and install post first.

Dig holes for your fence posts. Use either a power auger or a hand post-hole digger to dig holes that are 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter. Post holes should be deep enough to hold 1/3 the length of your post, plus 6 more inches for a gravel base.

Place the fence posts one at a time. Check to make sure each pole is plumb using a level, before moving on to the next post hole. Continue installing all the posts and return to the beginning and make sure it's seated level.

Use a trough to scrape any excess concrete away from the posts so that the concrete slopes down away from the pole. This prevents water from pooling around the pole.

  1. Mark the position of the horizontal rails.

For a 6 foot (1.8m) fence, the top rails should sit somewhere around 8 inches (20 cm) beneath the head of the support posts, while the bottom rails should terminate about 9 inches (23 cm) above ground level. Notch a dark line to indicate the outer edge against which the rails will be centered.

Draw your lines on the lower edge of the top rails and the upper edge of the bottom rails. This will allow you to keep an eye on them while positioning the rails.

To keep the height of the rails consistent, be sure to measure and mark each post separately.

  1. Screw the rails to the support posts.

Position the rails at the appropriate height and use a level to make sure they’re not lopsided. Crown the rails by sighting down both sides of them to check for any curvature to the rail, and then place the high side up before installing them. Then, attach the rails using heavy-duty 3 inches (7.6 cm) rust-resistant wood screws. For maximum stability, place the screws a couple of inches apart at the top and bottom of the rails.

It may be helpful to pre-drill pilot holes to prevent the end of the rail boards from splitting when you install screw anchors.

Keep in mind that your rails will go on the backside of the fence (the side visible from your property).

If you’re working alone, you may need to clamp or tie the rails in place until you can fasten them.

Trim all excess if there is any overlapping but if your measurements were done correctly, precuts are your best option to avoid needless cuts.

  1. Set the pickets at the appropriate height and secure firmly

Depending on your design, mark picket positions and secure them to the support post. Space the pickets evenly to ensure accuracy and uniformity.

Be sure to occasionally check the pickets to make sure they are plumb, using a level for vertical straightness.

  1. Spray Paint

Spray the completed fence with a protective finish. A thin layer of semi-transparent wood stain or oil-based varnish will help seal the pores in the cedar, improving its odds against the elements. Apply the finish using a pump sprayer or an airless paint sprayer and work one section at a time, aiming for full coverage. Go over both sides of the fence, and don’t forget to touch up the exposed end grain, as well.

While cedar’s properties make it naturally water-resistant, a quality finish can be invaluable for increasing your fence’s lifespan.

Once the stain or varnish has had time to fully dry, you can proceed to paint your fence if so desired.
