Fencing in the backyard enhances both your privacy and safety. Although fairly straightforward, fencing must be done properly. A fence can be put up in five different ways: posts can be set in spikes, piles, concrete footings or form tubes, or sunk directly into the ground. The choice of foundation depends on the area, soil conditions, fence model, and, of course your budget.
This project details each completion stage for the five types of foundation and specifies the ideal soil and ground conditions for each type.
