I hope this is in the correct forum. If not please feel free to move.
I'm getting ready to build a 42" high cedar picket fence to try to keep my kids corralled in our yard. I have a 1/4" pneumatic stapler and was wondering if 1-1/2" long staples would be sufficient to hold the pickets in place. The place I'm buying the materials from says that you have to use ring shank nails which I can get for my framing nailer but thought they may be overkill. Plus they are extremely expensive.
What does everyone think? Are 1-1/2" staples enough? I would plan on nailing two in at both the top and bottom rails.
