How to Mark the Ground and Set the Posts

At Fenceshop, we know how important it is to install a fence correctly to ensure safety and durability over time. Here is a practical and detailed guide on how to mark the ground and set the posts for your fence.

Ground Preparation

First of all, it's crucial to prepare the ground. Start by removing any debris, stones, and vegetation that might hinder the work. Once the ground is clean, we can proceed to the marking phase.

Marking the Ground

To correctly mark the ground, use a nylon string or a sturdy rope. Attach the string to the starting and ending posts of the fence, ensuring that it’s well-tensioned and in a straight line. This will help us maintain precise alignment while setting the posts.

Positioning the Posts

Positioning the posts is crucial for the stability of the fence. Here are the key steps:

  • Digging the holes: Use a manual auger or an excavator to dig the holes. The depth and diameter of the holes depend on the height of the fence and the specifications of the chosen posts.
  • Inserting the posts: Place the posts into the holes, ensuring they are perfectly vertical. Use a level to check the alignment.
  • Filling and compacting: Fill the holes with concrete or gravel, compacting the material well to ensure the posts’ stability. Let the concrete dry for the necessary time before proceeding with the mesh installation.
Choosing the Materials

Choosing the materials is another fundamental aspect. At Fenceshop, we offer a wide range of high-quality mesh and posts, such as:

  • Stilplax and Vortek Mesh: Ideal for those seeking resistance and durability.
  • Tubolario Posts: Sturdy and easy to install, perfect for all types of fences.
  • Bahia and GP Flex Mesh: Great for those who want an aesthetic solution without compromising security.
Installing the Mesh

Once the posts are firmly in place and the concrete is dry, we can proceed with the mesh installation. Follow these steps:

  • Attaching the mesh: Start by attaching one end of the mesh to the first post using clamps or wire.
  • Stretching the mesh: Extend the mesh along the perimeter of the fence, keeping it well-tensioned. Use a tensioner if necessary to ensure the mesh is perfectly aligned and free of waves.
  • Final attachment: Attach the other end of the mesh to the last post and ensure all attachment points are firmly anchored.
Accessories and Finishes

To complete the job, don’t forget the accessories and finishes. At Fenceshop, we offer a wide range of products to customize your fence:
