Pine is an inexpensive, easily accessible soft wood that - when treated with chemicals - provides a reliable option for fence framing (posts and rails).

        PROS:  Lowest cost, chemical provides rot resistance

        CONS:  Highly susceptible to warping, twisting, and cracking - ranging from mild to severe

                     Should not be used near garden beds due to chemical components of treatment

From technique to materials, there is a lot to consider in how to build your fence.  With all the bad information and marketing gimmicks out there, it can take a while to find what truly works the best.


In each decision, we make things very simple: we do what works and looks the best, while staying within budget.  A while ago, we switched over to stainless-steel ring-shank nails.  Here's why.

  • The best, most reliable fence companies are not the cheapest. 

  • Even when their location is marked and proper precautions are taken, underground wires, pipes, and sprinkler systems are hit on a regular basis when digging post holes.  Private propane lines, cable lines, internet lines, and sprinkler systems are not marked by 811 (free marking service), so be prepared to have those repaired if necessary.  Because it's not possible to find the location of sprinkler pipes or water mains, most companies do not cover the cost of rep...

Digging in Austin is rough work.  Our community is built on a few inches of top soil...and then ROCK.  Lots of rock.  If a fence contractor doesn't have the right tools for digging through that rock you'll end up with shallow post holes, and that spells disaster for you and your family;  entire sections of your fence can collapse during minor wind storms, or even from normal use. 


Austin Brothers Fence company has all the tools necessary to hammer our way through the rock and guarantee holes 18 - 24 inch...
