I had to Google "grape stake fence" to see what you meant. My neighbors have some wooden fences that use wider
boards, but resemble those, and they have also had to replace or reinforce posts that rotted at the soil line.
I thought about that. The grape stakes were still in pretty good shape, they're rough redwood, but the rest of the
structure much the worse for wear and weather. I imagine the fence company may be able to reuse most of the grape stakes
somewhere, as that quality is no longer available.
The old fence used 4x4 redwood posts. The new one uses 4x6' pressure treated fir, which is actually dimensionally
slightly larger than finish lumber, in bigger holes, with much more concrete. The new fence is much more substantial,
and once it gets a little weathering, will look better, too.
Your new fence looks nice, and I suspect, should last quite a while.
I think it's good for longer than I may be. ;-)
I also had them build a new gate at the side, as the old one had failed. If I fix the wire fencing under the back deck,
we once again won't have deer in the yard.
