Applicable Products:
Wood Fence.

Reply:
It really depends on what type of fence it is, how long you wish it to last, what type of post(s) they are, and how tall and of what material the fence/ gate is made of.  Typically yes, fences should have posts which are cemented in the ground.  However cedar posts are an exception, temporary fences are typically not cemented, and many chain link fences are installed uncemented and with post flanges/ anchors which serve a similar purpose.
