Thinking over some fencing ideas. Particularly which posts to use. I’m doing horizontal boards instead of the standard panels. I’m thinking of using metal (round) posts for spacing reasons as well as strength. Is there a product or idea(s) on how to dress up the metal posts to hide the metal look? Ideas on say boxing them out with wood?

They sell composite wraps for fenceposts I believe. I think they can slide over an existing metal post and there is a cap. I believe some actually have grooves to allow you to fit in horizontal slats, but I haven't really looked into it.
