Have any of you added a privacy fence? How much was it total? Would it be easier to DIY?


What about a porch?

it depends on your yard size.  where i live, it's unheard of NOT to have a fence.  they range from 4'-6'

also take into material, PVC, wood, colored PVC, standard, height, design?

we live on a very very small lot.  and it cost us $10k to replace our fence

I built my fence from pallets so the wood was free but it took over a year to collect enough. Even with free wood I still spent close to 1,000 I'm materials. I fenced in 5 acres.
It's usually cheaper to buy the wood and build it yourself but sometimes you can catch a great sale and get the panels cheaper.
It's easier to pay someone else to do it but it will cost you.

We got fence panels so it didn't take too long. We have a good sized yard and it cost us about $700

My husband pre-dug the holes, then the next day him and my brother put it up.  It took about 6 hours or so.  I will see if I can find a picture.  We got the panels from Menards, not sure if there is one around you
