A wooden fence can serve you well for 7-12 years if its made of untreated lumber, and 30 years or more for pressure treated lumber. However, it will require correct installation, proper maintenance, and occasional mending. Common reasons for fence repair include severe weather (such as rainfall, snowstorms, heavy wind, or salt air), damage from vehicles or vandalism, and insect infestation.  See full article.
