A horizontal fence is a must-have item in your garden or yard if privacy is something that matters to you. But just because you’re putting a horizontal fence into your yard, doesn’t mean it has to take away from the natural beauty of your landscaping!

Standard Pine Horizontal Fence
I’m starting things off with a classic horizontal fence idea! To complete this project, head to your local hardware store for 2x4s and 4x4x8 wooden posts. Of course, the amount of wood you’ll need depends on the size and height of your fence, so make sure to plan accordingly. DIYers should dig out holes in the ground for the 4x4x8 wooden posts (adhere with concrete) before sliding in the horizontal fence pieces. Attach the horizontal 2x4s into the wooden posts with a screw gun. Don’t forget to finish off your project with a coat of stain or wooden sealant!
