Set Posts - for the best, professional installation
you should always use a post driver!
Create a “flowing” visual line that follows the
contour of the land. (see Diagram
make sure posts are in line visually - front to
back. (see Diagram
Determine the height of your fence and run a
string line to determine if any posts need cut.
Mark and cut any posts that are too high.
Mark the post for proper buckle and bracket
placement. (see Diagram
- First mark a line across the end post in
the direction of the fence run
- Then make a second line at a 90˚ angle to
the first line
- And last make a 45˚ mark splitting the two “pie shaped” quarters
Find the tangent to your endpost which is at the end of the 45˚ line you just drew. Use a marking
stick to vertically align and mark each rail run.
You can do this for all of the line posts, corner
post and end posts and then install your rail and hardware. (see Diagram
