Please take a look at some of the shadowbox wood privacy fences we have done in the past. Maybe it will help with deciding what type of fence you want to go with. Our shadwobox fences have enough overlap of the pickets to operate as a privacy fence since you can only see through the fence at extreme angles. All wood shadowbox privacy fences come with posts anchored in concrete, at least three support rails & 6" pickets. All nails are hot dipped galvanized ring shank and all gate hardware is stainless steel black vinyl coated.
