Fencing Installed to Perfection

How you can erect a new fence

You can either embed fence posts with cement, bolt them down, or put them in using metal spikes.

How do you figure out how many panels you are going to need?

1) Determine the fence length.

2) Divide this length with the fence panel width.

Our conventional panels are 6 feet or 1.8 metres wide. How long your posts determine the fence height. Keep in mind that posts have to go 2 feet down into the ground, so remember this when choosing your posts.

What you’ll need:

1) Fence panelling and possibly trellis

2) Fencing posts (If you use our fencing posts, then make sure that the additional length sunk into the soil is a minimum of 60 centimetres

3) Panel cuts

4) Galvanised nails

5) Spade

6) Spirit level

7) Measuring tape

8) Concrete mix to use for fixing the posts

9) Gravel boards/Kickboards

Once you get all you need, the time has come to erect the fence.

Starting Out

Establish your property’s boundary. If you can find the white boundary pegs, then ask the council for a set boundary. If not, just work with the adjoining neighbours for choosing your boundary line. It’s sometimes easier to work with neighbours than dealing with a council request. Of course, this does depend on the sort of neighbourly relationship you have. Once the boundary line has been established, lay 50-mm. string line out and attach it to the pegs on your side of the boundary. This determines where your front face posts are going to be.

Drive-In Your Spikes

Use a detector to be sure you’re not going to hit pipes or electrical cables in the terrain underneath the proposed fence location. If you choose to use metal spikes, which are quick and easy, then put each post spike into the ground before making sure it’s secure. Use a heavy hammer so you can drive each spike down more into the ground. Keep doing this until the square base itself is level with the surrounding ground surface. If you want to make the pounding not so demanding use, a spike-settling instrument at each stake’s highest point. Next, drive the remains of the spike once you make sure the spikes are properly separated in a straight line to fit the boards. If the installation isn’t something you’re great at, then make sure you settle your first fencing posts before the first board so you can make sure everything is dispersed properly.

Fitting The Posts

Put all your posts into their spots, twofold. Be sure every post is separated properly from each other and ready for the boards.

Lay Out The Gravel Boards

If you want to prevent bottom finishes on your fence from rotting, then underpin your panels on treated rock gravel boards. Work using the lowest parts. Put the boards into resting positions on the ground. Mark and slice a fit any part where one will cross a post. Use wall settling sections to join your gravel boards to the post bases. Verify flatness using a soul level.

Fixing The Panels

While it rests on the rock board, you need to position the first fence board on the accompanying post. Screw or nail the altering sections to that board. Utilise either excite nails or weatherproof screws in regards to the wall. If you want a quality installation, utilise three or four parts with each post. Keep fixing the boards.

Neaten Up Your Posts

Using level ground, you might need to go trim up some timber. Utilise the tallest point of every single post to ascertain that the tops of all your posts are equally level with one another. Then, you need to screw a top to every post to give in protection from weather and climate.

The final step might be when a fence links up to a wall at its end. In such a case, utilise bolts to firmly secure the fencing to that wall.
