Lattice can be a challenging job and if executed correctly your fence will not stand up to the test of time. If you aren’t sure how to take on the task at your own pace It is best to contact a fence contractor. In this blog we will examine the best way to manage posts during a fence installation.

It’s best to figure out where your fence posts are going to be prior to beginning your fence project. Map out on your land the location you’d like to place every post. This can make the whole task easier when you plan before.

Once you have mapped all the areas where the posts are going to go, the next step is to dig holes. You will need to place posts about a couple of inches lower than the surface. Find all holes you can using a hammer if it is necessary so that the posts are pushed deeper into the ground.

In the end, you’ll need to pour concrete into the holes with the posts. As the concrete sets, it’ll keep the posts in place within the soil. When the hardening process is completed, you are able to fill those holes again with dirt in order to conceal the concrete.
