Note: all post are set 6' apart for added
fence strength unless otherwise requested by customer
Treated wood posts (set 24" deep in concrete) are an economical
choice but may warp or twist causing gate dysfunction and entire
fence will not be straight. Warping may accure within days or
weeks of installation.
Cedar posts (set 24" deep in concrete)
are a better choice. They are more stable than treated posts
but have a tendency to rot at ground level after 12-15 years.
Galvanized steel posts are your best choice
and will be set 30" to 36" deep depending on layout
requirements. Post are 2 3/8" DIA., .095 Gal., set with
100 lbs. of concrete. Post will include metal caps
1 7/8" & 2 1/4" Screw
Shank Galvanized nails.
Wood to metal Wap-O's with 1 1/4"
Spruce Fence Information
Spruce/Whitewood is an economy wood,
irregularities, warping, and blemishes are common and should
be expected. Texture and color also may vary. Life expectancy
is 5 to 8 years under normal conditions. Some fences have been
known to only last three years. Life span can be increase with
sealing or staining.
Cedar Fence Information
Three grades of cedar are available;
all weather and wear the same. Fairway Greens recommends only
using Clear and #1 cedar. Grade #2 cedar is not recommeded due
to the number of knot holes which causes the fences appearance
to unsitely. These knot holes will fall out in time reducing
the privacy in which the fence was intended. Cedar fences with
steel posts should easily last 15 - 20 years plus under normal
conditions. Cedar is naturally weather, rot, and insect resistant,
but resistance is greatly reduced after the fence has dried.
Fairway Greens recommends sealing or staining to assist and extend
the natural resistance.
Standard # 2 Grade Cedar Pickets
Not recommended. Knots are plentiful. Blemishes and color variation
are extremly noticable. Colors vary from light to dark brown.
# 1 Western Red Cedar Pickets
This grade is the most commonly installed, finer in appearance
and fewer blemishes. Knot quantities and size are unpredictable,
though generally knots are fewer and smaller with slight, if
any, color variations. Full cut 1"x4" or 1" x
6". Available in Flat Top, Dog Ear, Gothic, and French Gothic.

Cedar or Treated Pine Rails-
"Rails" are the horizontal boards that connect between
the posts and serve as the framework of the fence. 2" x
4" rails are much larger and stronger than standard 2"
x 3" rails. These rails also substantially extend the life
and strength of your new fence. Rails will be staggered seam
when post are six foot apart
2" x 6" Treated Baseboard- This pressure treated board stands on edge
between the ground and the bottom of the fence. This increases
the height of the fence, adds additional support, and keeps the
bottom of the fence from rotting.
Cedar Top Cap - This is a cedar 2x6 or 2x8 board on top of
the fence adding to the fences stubility and frames the top of
the fence creating a finished custom look.

privacy with little or no creaks between pickets. 1 1/4"
Over lap on each side of pickett to reduce sun cracks. 1"x4"
and 1"x6" pickets available. Great for pools, jacuzzies,
etc. where total privacy is wanted.

Staining is available in a variety of colors and can be applied before
construction of fence. Pre-dipping the fence provides a complete
coverage of the wood. Staining of the fence after construction
will not fully reach inbetween pickets.
