    I am needing to stain my own privacy fence. Where do I start??? How do i keep the stain from getting on my driveway(fence butts to edge of back of the drive)?? Also how to keep from killing the grass???

    HOW TO APPLY??? Garden sprayer????

    What kind to use??? Olympic???

    What color?? My house and shop are both Charcoal Grey.

    Put down a drop cloth( tarp, plastic sheeting ect) tuck under fence.

    Pump up garden sprayer works well. as does a roller with thick nap., especially on top and near bottom where you do not want overspray.

    Brand, cannot comment, I have only used Sherwin Williams, It seems ok, I have not heard any comments about Olympic, and negative comments about Behr, for what it's worth.
