Sooner or later, you’re going to need to know how to set fencepost. Right now I’m going to show you how to get it done and do it the right way.
Now for this particular project, I’m going to be building a 4 feet tall fence, which tells me right there that my fencepost hole needs to be half the height of my fence.
We’re there, I’ve got a 4 x 4 basically which is really about 3-½ inches. You want at least twice that width, we’re good to go. So I’ve got this one post, this is sort of my reference, now it’s time to take and pull a straight string line. I want to make sure that my fence actually goes in a straight line. Make sure that it’s on the same side of the stake on both sides.
It’s best to pour few inches of gravel in your hole before the concrete, this will help with drainage.
Now I can go on and open this sack of concrete, add it right over the hole here. If you dry set your post, you can adjust your post, move them a little bit. I get enough of that there just to set my post so that it’s holding it stable then you can see here I’ve got this corner edge up against the string line but I’ve got a little gap there so I’m just going to take the post up top, straighten it out, I want it just to come right up to my string line like so and then we’re checking for plumb. This direction and that post is set, I’m going to add one more bag of dry concrete and then finally we’ll add water. The ground will actually absorb right up to the shape of all that dry concrete in there. That’s just enough water there, now bring a little bit of that ready mix, now pour a little dome around the post because I don’t want water to sit here right at the base of my post. Again, my fence is only supposed to be 4 feet tall so I’m going to cut my post there at 4 feet. That’s how you do it.
