    product recs for sealing new fence?

    The front section of my new privacy fence is up. HOORAY! I feel better knowing the pool is more secure. I went with cedar, but know that if I don't seal it I will have a mess. Does anyone have a product recommendation? This is my first wood fence, so any words of wisdom would be welcome. And, because I am proud (almost as proud of it as the fence company seems to be - $$$) here are some pics! (please ignore the need for lawn work - I have gotten some of it done since these pics, but there are miles to go!)

    I use Penofin here in the desert SW. Pricey, but great stuff.

    I have used the blue label for many years with great success. Takes two coats to look great on bare wood. A single coat every two or three years after that. Good luck!

    I own a fence company in NC, and we recommend CWF (clear wood finish) available at Lowes, or Home Depot. Apply with a garden sprayer once every couple of years. However we mainly install treated pine fencing, so you maght want to keep that in mind, and talk to a local paint store.
