    Love the fence. Did you find your version to be more or less expensive than those pre-made wooden fences for sale at Home Depot or Lowes? Thanks!

      Hi Zoran, I think the fence turned out cheaper than the pre-built ones. But I couldn't tell you for sure without looking it up myself. Generally the raw lumber cost will work out less than a pre-built product. El Granto
