If you use quality materials such as “slash” pine pailings, and full sized posts and rails plus construct the fence correctly, it should last for around 30 years.  The posts must be set at the correct depth and concreted “properly” and all galvanized fixtures must be used.

What type of timber should we use for our fence?

For fencing we only use slash pine pailings.  They are thicker than radiata pine and less prone to twisting.  Our posts are full sized at 150/50mm and centre morticed.  Our rails are also full sized being 75/50mm.
