Fence pegs causing grief

Due to "poor/quick planning" we decided to use adjustable pegs similar to oz-posts for 4x4's and 6x8 prefab wood panels. One side of the yard is great, pretty solid with no complaints. The other side is horrible. There is a dog kennel next door which caused a lot of mud and slop and soggy ground. I can basically shake the entire row of seven 6x8 panels by hand. As soon as the wind blows its no longer level and crooked and sloped all over the place. What is the best way to re-secure these pegs without redoing the entire fence? I'm thinking about digging around each post and packing gravel around. *sigh*

n0c7,

You basically have 2 options. Replace it and do it right, or live with it the way it is.

Pretty much my conclusion as well lefty. One friend suggested using packing gravel about 2 feet deep all around as he has done entire fences with just packing gravel(almost 4 feet deep) and no concrete and they have held up for years. The joys...
