Fence Panel Installation

Once you have decided on the type and style of panels you will be using for your fencing, you need to do some preparation first.
Clear the fencing line as best as possible removing all hedges plants and debris.
Measure out your fence run to work out how many panels are required, then mark out the straight fence run using a string line, this is to insure the fence will finish straight.  Most garden panels are 1.83m wide which is 6ft but you will need to check this first as some panels come 1.8m wide and others wider, this will affect the distance between your posts.
Dig your first fence post hole, ideally you need to dig the hole as tight to the size of the post as possible, leaving approx. 50mm around the post if possible.
All posts should be a minimum of 600mm or 2ft deep in the ground to sufficiently support your panels.
A tip is to mark the bottom of all the post with a pen to show the sufficient depth needed. You can drop your post in the hole if it's not far enough in the ground remove the post and dig some more. If it's too deep in the ground put some soil back in the hole and compact down using the post.
Once you have the hole at the correct depth with the post standing in it, use a post level to check the post is straight, hold the post level and fill around the post with a bag of ready mixed postmix. While continuing to check that the post is dead level, compact the post mix down with some timber or a temper around the post.
Although the posts should be dug in with 1.83m between them, it is advisable to work from one starting post and using a panel as a spacer work along your fence run installing your posts, digging the holes and adding the post mix as before.

You also need to look at the ground orientation and take this in to account. It is easy to install timber fence panels if you have sloping ground, just as well as on level surfaces, However when fencing sloping gardens, longer fence posts are required to ensure you have enough post in the ground to sufficiently hold the garden panels and make sure each fence panel sits level horizontally.

We would recommend fitting a gravel board underneath any fence panel. Gravel boards protect the bottom of the panel from ground dampness, helping to prevent rot.

Tate Fencing provide both concrete or timber fence posts for the installation of your new fence panels.

Concrete posts have vertical slots down the length of the post making it easy for you to slot the garden fence panels in and out. This means the garden fencing panels can easily be replaced at a later date by simply sliding the damaged panel out of the posts and slotting another on in its place. Other benefits of using slotted concrete posts with panels are that no additional fixings are required and the concrete post will outlast all timber posts.
