1. “Call Before You Dig” – Contact your local underground utility check service several days prior to beginning work.
2. Fence posts should be set approximately 6′ to 8′ apart, depending on the type of fence, terrain, purpose of fence, and height. We recommend setting the posts in a minimum of 8″ wide x 24″ deep post holes.
3. Take time to measure and position the posts accurately. The appearance and the structural strength of your fence depends a great deal on the positioning of the fence posts.
Note: Standard rails are 8′ long. You want to make sure you set your posts at or slightly below 8′ centers.
4. Set the corner or end posts first, then stretch a line from each corner or end post to align all the posts in between.
