Lumber sizes are usually given in "nominal" measurements. The nominal measurements are a board's size before it has been planed smooth (surfaced) on all 4 .
Check local codes and homeowner's association guidelines that might govern fence style, size and placement. Codes may also specify post hole requirements.
