How to Erect a Fence with Concrete Posts
Due to the size and weight of concrete fencing posts and concrete gravel boards you may find it easier to get the help of a friend with this project. Begin by laying your concrete posts flat. Space them out by cutting a piece of wood the same width as the fence panels being used. Lay all of your posts on the ground spacing them with the same piece of wood.
Now begin digging your holes for the posts. This should be a minimum of 18 inches. Remember, when purchasing your concrete posts they should be a minimum of 24 inches longer than a measurement of the fence panel and gravel board added together. For example in this demonstration, the fence panel is 59 inches. The gravel board is 12 inches. Therefore, the concrete post being used is 71 inches long. Now lower your first concrete post into the hole. While being held upright, shovel in the concrete mix. Refer to the fact file at the end of the tape for quantities.
Now tap down your post with a firm object. Here we’ve used the piece of wood. Now check the verticals with your level. Run a length of string from the finishing point to the first concrete post. Adjust this to a height of approximately 12 inches from the ground. Then double check if there is enough height on the post to accommodate the fence panel. The string will act as a horizontal guide for the top of each gravel board.
Now position your first gravel board. Make sure it is inserted into the slot on the post. Now position the fence panel on top of gravel board making sure it’s into the vertical slot on the post. Now temporarily lower the string to the ground to make it easier to move the second post. Insert the second post into the second hole driving the slot well on to the gravel board and fence panel. Check your verticals and a post can now be concreted in as with the first post.
Repeat this process for as many boards and panels as you have to erect. Always make sure that the fence panels in gravel boards are tight between each post.
