    What would you all recommend to be adequate spacing between washer/screws for securing fencing?
    I have positioned it in place with Heavy Duty Staple Gun with each staple about 5" apart. Now I am going to secure it with washers/screws.
    6", 8", 12"? I don't want to over secure wasting both time and $$ on materials(washers/screws).
    Thanks
