Post Caps (optional)
Screws and Fixings
Start by digging the hole for your fence post, the depth and diameter of your hole all depends of the size of your fence, the height and type of fence. Before purchasing your fence posts and panels, make sure your fence posts are 2 ft longer than your fence panels.
Before digging your fence post hole make sure the ground is clear, free of any old concrete or old fence posts that may still be in the ground. Then using your string line, mark out where you want your fence to go, make sure to get then exact measurements of your panels when laying the string line out and mark out where the fences post are going to be.
Dig a 2 ft hole where you want your fence posts to go using a posthole digger. Once the first post hole is dug out, use a length of timber that is the same length of your fence panel plus half the width of your post to mark out the center point of the next hole.
After digging your holes in accordance to your fence size and type, fill your post holes with 2 inches of ballast or gravel to allow drainage then level it out. Position the post in your hole on top of the 2 inches of ballast/concrete and make sure it is level.
Once the post is in place and level, fill the hole half way with water, then pour in the Postcrete evenly around the post until no water is visible and its nearly at soil level. We advise around 3 bags of Postcrete per post hole. Postcrete/Postmix is preferred instead of concrete as it significantly reduces drying time and it comes ready to use, with no mixing required. We recommend that you use a dust mask, gloves and goggles whilst using the Postcrete, safety first!
While the mix is still wet use your spirit level to check the post is still straight. The Postcrete will take between 5 to 10 minutes to set. When the Postcrete is set and the post is in place, finish off by covering the top of the hole with grass or soil.
When all your fence posts are in place and the Postmix is set, lay a length of timber across the top of use posts and use your spirit level to make sure all your fence posts are correct and the same height. When you have checked they are all level, have your fence panel at the ready.
Before putting your fence panels in place, fix your brackets and screw in to the panel. This will make it easy to fix the panel to post when holding the panel in the upright position. When you are sure the panel is in line with your post and level, fix panel to post. Fix until all panels are secure.
(Optional) To finish the job we recommend adding post caps. They look good and most importantly help prolong the life of the post. Simply nail in to the top of each post with a nail long enough to go through the cap and penetrate the post so it is fixed securely.
