Simple Setting Fence Posts in Concrete
Setting fence posts in concrete – Start with a simple sketch of your fence plan that gives 10 feet between posts. Count number of corner entries, end posts and intermediate posts, and add two rails per. If there are a few large trees on property line, it is best to finish fence on both sides, rather than attaching rails to tree. Positions are usually 7 to 8 feet long, but can be cut down to avoid extra digging or a fence that looks too high. Visit your local timber or order what you need online.
Dig holes at least 2 meters deep and at most 3 meters deep with a posthole digger, a hollow shooter (a short, narrow shovel) and a rigid metal bar or ball bar. For hard rock or hard ground, consider hiring a small drill contractor as time and hard work may be worth price. Lay out fence materials, with posts leaned in holes and rails together. If there is a section that should be shorter than 10 feet, simply cut rails downwards. Hook ends to fit two rails into pre-drilled post.
