Here at WOCC we can help you with a few simple things to look out for when building your fence.
Here are a few tips you should consider when installing your fence posts:
Place stakes where you want your fence line. This is very important to do correctly as it will become the basis of where you eventually put your fence post. Make sure your markers are in place and evenly spaced.
To see your actual fence line, tie a string along the top of your stakes. This will point out any obstructions in your fence line. Your posts should be at least 2 feet longer then your projected fence height. You need to do this to provide enough material to put in the ground when your posts go in.
You’re now ready to dig the holes for your fence posts. This is also a very important step as it is easy to do incorrectly. You need the correct tools for this job, and having them will make all the difference. WOCC recommends using a posthole auger. This is a tool specifically designed to dig fence posts.
Once all the post holes have been dug, put some loose gravel at the bottom to help drainage. You will now be able to start pouring your concrete fence post. Make sure your post molds are in place and level before pouring your concrete.
