Calculating Cedar Stack Rail Fencing Requirements:

First, measure the distance you plan to fence. There will be two factors which affect your fence material calculations: the angle by which you stack rails and the height you stack to. We suggest a gentle angle of zigzag (130 degrees as shown) and five rails per section of fence (providing for an approximate height of four feet). You will need approximately 60 feet of material for every 50' of coverage.
Installation Guide to Stack Fence:

Step 1: When determining your fencing requirements, you may want to set 8' 2x4s on the ground, butting them together (not overlapping) as you figure the angle of zigzag you prefer.

Step 2: With each fence rail laying flat on its side, begin by measuring 8-12" in from both ends of rail. Make a mark. Drill completely through each rail using a 3/4" drill bit. (Note: Unscarfed rails are predrilled at no extra cost. Our mill orients rails so they will sit squarely on one another and drills a 7/8 - 1" hole approximately 1 from end of rail. Rebar stakes/ spikes can then be used to secure rails in place and into the ground.)

Step 3: One end of both your starting and ending sections of fence will require a 6 inch long section of rail placed between each rail to maintain its spacing. You may cut 6 inch long spacers from one of your rails with a handsaw. Nail rails to spacers as you build your cedar stack fence.

Step 4: After you have drilled holes through both ends of every rail, you are now ready to set your bottom or starter rails parallel to one another. Place the cedar rail either on rocks or posts at a height of approximately 4 inches above ground. Do not place your rocks or posts directly beneath the drilled rail holes.

Step 5: Next place your cross rails on top of your starter rails making sure to line up the holes as best you can. Continue laying out one rail over the other on its flattest side.

Step 6: After setting your final rail and therefore knowing your fence height, begin cutting 1/2 inch rebar to a length allowing suitable penetration through your cedar fence rails and into the soil. Use a sledge hammer to tap your rebar through the fence rails to the point where it is flush and into the soil to a proper depth.
