Question How to drive fence posts into a driveway

Hi. I would like to install about 150 linear feet of fencing in my back yard. The back side of the fence will be parallel with the back alley of my house, and therefore the posts that are on this side of the fence will need to be driven into and installed over my concrete/asphalt driveway. How should I go about making the holes? Has anyone ever done this? I know I have to use a post hole digger when digging into the ground, but I wasn't sure what to use for the concrete. I read about a product called O-Z fence posts...Are these good to use or should I go the traditional 4x4 wooden post set in concrete? Thanks so much for helping!

Why do you want to build a fence across your driveway?

The type of posts will be determined by the type of fence (wire, picket, privacy,etc).

Posts through asphalt or concrete will need to go deeper than a normal driveway thickness; therefore you will need holes big enough to use a post hole digger for wood posts if you wish to install wood posts.

Hope this helps. Good luck with your project.
