    Tear down fence.

    I'm about to go out and use my grapple to tear down this fence that the previous owner put up to contain their dogs. They didn't build anyway to get into that area except through the house or garage.

    Anyway, it occurred to me that unless I pull down the slats by hand, I might end up with a bunch of nails in the grass.

    What do you think?

    I doubt you'll end up with many nails in the lawn. They'll stay stuck in one board or another.

    I have one of these. It helps. There are probably better ones for what you need.

    I am kind of OCD about stuff like this. My only choice would be to take it apart board by board and save it all for further projects.

    Many times over the 20+ years we have been here I was able to complete a project with just the scrap lumber I have saved. There is no just running down to Lowe’s for me as it is a 3 hour round trip.

    If you think there is any possibility you will ever have dogs, I would consider just putting in a gate and leaving the fence. Can really be good especially for puppies.

    I was thinking that exact same thing. And, if you have kids or grandkids, it could be handy as well.


    And, I'm like Stan - I'd probably take it apart piece by piece just because I find it easier to clean up that way. I don't understand the "home improvement" shows where they do demo with a sledge hammer and make a huge mess. When I had to redo my basement office, I ended up just unscrewing the drywall from the studs (hadn't been painted yet, so the screws were fairly easy to find) and pulled the drywall down in sheets. No muss, no fuss. Made a lot less mes and was easy to clean up. I'm getting ready to re-do my deck and will be unscrewing that board by board as well.

    I agree. I see them destroy an entire kitchen with sledge hammers and saws that are much nicer than my kitchen. I know there has to be a market for the used cabinets and such.

    And I agree about the mess. By taking the fence apart board by board you de-nail each board as you go and throw the nails in a coffee can. My father used to straighten used nails and use them - I haven’t gone that far....yet....
