How sturdy is it? My current containment fence is 5 board oak, with a post every 8ft. I’m thinking hard about going to continuous for ease, looks, and price. But I’d hate for it to be weaker than my board fence.
My issue with board fences was that things were pretty good until they weren't.
Dunno about the life of oak boards but even using 2" and 2-1/2" rough spruce after about 15 to 20 years - - - well - - - let's just say that when the pressure got high - - - the fence blew up!
Also dunno if my verbiage is at all helpful (grin!).
