Let you redo your entire yard. you're just going to need to get yourself some standard, six inches, fencing board, redwood and then you're going to fabricate a way to attach it using some conduit clamping. I happen to have one inch and one and a quarter inch clamps. Now it's interesting as the one in to actually measures one and a quarter and the one and a quarter actually measures one and a half. So there might be a little bit of experimentation on your part to figure out what you need. In addition, I got a box of number eight screws, a three-quarter inch and one inch which are going to screw in from the back of the clamps into the wood and I'll show you up here what I've done very, very simple from the backside.
You can clearly see I've used, the ducting clamp here to go around the pipe and it just screws right into the back of the board. That's it now. You want to just be careful that you get a screw that doesn't go through to the front where you see it from your yard and that's about it. So you can use some resourcefulness on your part, to determine what size clamps you need and how long of screws you need. I've shown you what I've needed for this particular construction right here, but that's essentially it now there's another little detail. You might notice right here. The top of the fence has these little risers with a hole in it for the pipe that goes along the top, and it causes the top board to stick out just a little bit. But the advantage of that is from our side from the yard side for this rental is it actually gives a nice revealed, It looks actually really attractive, so each application might be a little different, but this is just showing you how you can think outside the box and be resourceful to use products that aren't intended for what they're used for to do something really attractive and it as a Really great simple and affordable fix for your yard.
Here's one more little detail to save you a little bit of time, be sure that you put your clamps that are going to go on the boards that run vertically on first put them around, because once you have the board here, let's say like this from the backside, it may be hard to position those in so it's easy to put them on first and then you can throw these boards on right on top and then from the back side, screw room in what I'm going to do is put all the boards up. Lean it along here first, I'm going to have them sticking up and then I'm going to be putting the boards across horizontally afterward sizing them in perfectly and then, after all, that's done I'll, be cutting off these extra pieces, so that makes the job super fast I'm guessing.
We've measured the distance between the post and did the board to halfway roughly and so now all we have to do is measure the exact amount. That's left cut those from in we'll cut those tops off and we'll show you the finished product all right. Well, you can see where they have a seam in the middle here as they go along they're all connected and all there is left to do is just chop off this top riser and you may want to go straight across that's how we're going to do it. We're going to go straight across or you can have a nice little reveal like a fence post, but I really like how this naturally has a little bump here. Just because of the design of our fence end up having a nice is reveal, so that's it and I'll show you the finished product here in about ten minutes.
Well, here you go super simple hope you enjoyed that hope. It becomes useful for you. If you have a rental and you're trying to spruce it up a little bit on a budget or you just don't want to waste a lot of time or money takes a long time to put in a large fence but take an advantage of the existing steel. A pipe is kind of a way to go I'll, go along the back side of the fence, and you can see how it's all done now. You see the straps here in the corners and how it's on there it's pretty straightforward. So this is what it looks like from the back completely done and I'm going to go around to the front.
