Fence Post Installation Tips

Installing line posts is the second step in the fence installation process [after driving in ground sleeves]. Before mounting line posts, it is best to read these fence post installation tips:
1. Line posts will be placed every 15-20 feet along the fence line. The line posts can go closer; but the fence mesh will risk sagging at the top leading way for wildlife to jump into the gardening area. (This can be rectified by adding tensioning line).
2. Line posts for deer fence as well as dog fence use posts that are 1 5/8" in diameter. The cat fence line posts will be 1 3/8" in diameter.
3. Angle steel posts are used when aesthetics aren't important, say in heavily wooded areas. These types of fence posts should be spaced approximately 10-15 feet apart from each other for best results.
