Materials Needed
  • Stakes
  • String
  • Measuring Tape
  • Rubber Mallet
  • Post Hole Digger
  • Level
  • Concrete Mix
  • Drill with 1/8" bit
  • Hacksaw
  • Phillips Head Screwdriver
  • 1/4" Hex-Head Driver
2. Establish your fence line by staking out the area to be enclosed and attaching a guide string to the stakes.  Make sure the fence is set back from the property line as required by local codes.
3. Separate and identify your posts.
There are 3 types of posts: Line, End/Gate, and Corner posts.
The horizontal rails on the sections fit into the holes punched into the posts.
The line posts have holes punched on opposite sides.
Corner posts have holes punched on adjacent sides.
End posts have holes punched on just one side.
A gate post is the same as an end post but the post walls are twice as heavy to support the weight and latching of a gate.
