Replacing Existing Fence With Scaffold Board Fence

Postby modeno65 » Fri Aug 17, 2018 4:17 pm


I am looking to replace my existing fence with one made of scaffold boards. These will be sanded and treated with a preserve before erecting

My question is - Will 4' x 4' posts set approx 6ft apart and sunk 2ft in the ground be sufficient to support the boards. They are to be attached horizontally. Weight of a board is approx 5kg/m

Height will be 2.1m (9 boards) so 1m width would have @ 45kg weight spanning the 2 support posts

Any advice to enhance stability would be great
