How to Install a Vinyl Fence Post How to Install a Vinyl Fence Post
A vinyl fence post is a support structure of your vinyl fence. The positioning of your vinyl fence post is essential to the durability of your vinyl fencing.
Step 1-Mark your Location
Determine the total span of your vinyl fence and calculate the amount of vinyl fence post that you need to install. Ideally, you need to have one vinyl fence post placed every six feet of your vinyl fence. Mark each post location using spray paint.
Step 2-Dig the Hole
With a hydraulic auger, dig the holes at least 2 feet deep. Remove the rocks and dirt on the holes using a shovel.
Step 3-Insert the Posts
Insert the vinyl fence post in the hole. Fill the hole with concrete mix to secure your vinyl fence post. Do the same with the remaining fence posts. Make sure that all the vinyl fence posts are level with each other. Tie a string on each end of the post and adjust the height of your vinyl fence post with a rubber mallet.
Step 4-Add Water
With a water hose, fill the post hole with water to cure the concrete mix.
