I am putting up a 6ft privacy fence. I had the posts set by a local
contractor and I am planning on putting up the backer rails and slats
myself. My question is this. When I measure the height for the rails
1. Measure from the ground for each post
2. Measure from the bottom of the end posts and then chalk a line
across them and use that.
3. Use a chalk line and a line level and create a perfectly level line
all the way across.
The ground is pretty level then slopes a bit then is level again.
