Estimates for new w.cedar privacy fencing 70' backyard
I'm in the process of getting estimates for a privacy fence for our backyard.
I liked this co. and their products - the build their own after specs are agreed upon. They do rec in our location to do 6x6 post vs 4x - which I agree - it can be moist in that location
Hoping someone can offer me some assistance with the estimate
