Free Pallet Fencing! Just find a company in your area that gives away pallets. Paint your fence and without looking closely, one would never know they were made from recycled pallets. What a fabulous idea. I love re-using, and we couldn't pass this up. We already collect pallets that Richard turns into compost bins, and if they are free, even better.
How to Set Fence Posts That Won't Rot - soak in wood preservative containing copper napthanate. Place post on top of at least 6 inches of aggregate. Pour concrete so that it is above soil level. Trowel top smooth and slope so water runs away from post. Apply exterior latex caulk around base of post. Use heartwood which is dark & denser & more insect resistant, not sapwood which is lighter.
