It's six feet exactly. 72 inches.

Can't you just use regular pressure treated 2x4's for a fence?

Asked by Bill September 17, 2019

Answers

Yes, you can. Cedar resists rot and termites, but a treated 2x4 will hold up fine.

They come 4 boards to the box. Divide the price by 4 to get your answer. They ship for free, by UPS, right to your door. Can't beat that.

how many of these boards will i need for a 60 ft long fence

Asked by Lisa September 19, 2017
1
Answer

Depends on how many you want for each section. For a 60 foot long fence, if you place your 4x4 posts at 6 foot on center, that's 10 sections. I started with 3 cedar boards per section. That's 30 boards total. Since they come 4 boards to the box, you'll need 8 boxes (with 2 extras). That gave me a very nice looking fence. I stained them in the workshop before assembling the fence, with Behr Transparent Natural Cedar stain, also available at HD. Don't forget your fence posts. You'll need 11 posts for your 10 sections. Since they come in boxes of 2, you'll need 6 boxes (with 1 extra). I've had a lot of passers-by stop and compliment me on my fence and the shade garden that it protects from the deer; you will, too. The boxes are shipped by UPS, and it takes 1-2 weeks for delivery, but it's worth the wait.

Great rails for a rustic look, weather resistant fence. I originally used 3 of the 6 foot rails, spaced horizontally, for each section, between two of the cedar 4x4 posts with the gothic top. I stained them all with transparent cedar natural tone stain (also avail. at HD) before even putting them up. They withstood our rugged northern Michigan winter; even the boards near the road stood up to our snow plows. I've gotten lots of compliments on the fence and the shade garden that it protects. This summer, I added 2 more rails between each section, as well as a gated section, to keep the deer herd from sticking their heads into the garden and chewing off my flower buds. Recommend.

These Rough Sawn Western Red Cedar 2X4s were hard to source. Home Depot provided just what I needed to match the wood used in my 1988 cedar sided home. Fast service, and the cedar 2X4s were securely package; they arrived in great condition and assisted in repairing where regular 2X4s would not work. Excellent job by Home Depot!

It's definitely cedar and it's definitely rough. Beware that the dimensions of the rails are not a standard two by four--they are literally two inches by four inches. Plus, at only six feet long, they don't work as standard fence rails unless you want to set the posts extra close together or something. The literal two inch thickness also makes it difficult for them to work alongside other standard sized lumber. I was unable to use them for anything other than crossbracing, unfortunately.

The product I received and really needed in a timely manner was not what is pictured at all! Instead I received 4 boards that only had one good side, were not rough sawn and looked alot like redwood. This product failed all my expectations!

The packaging was good and it arrived on time. The cedar boards on the other hand is a different story. Two boards had bark on most of the board and because of the knots were so many on one side I could not use two boards. I was using these for a Corn board game. It look like they just grabbed any board in the pile and didn't look at them.The other two boards were good, I have no complaints with them. I was able to buy two more boards to finish the project.
