Prepare the yard
Measure the perimeter of your yard, but first:
- Confirm your property line.
In order to get accurate measurements, you need to know
exactly where your property line is.
- Locate underground utilities.
- Underground utility lines will affect where your fence posts can be placed.
- Research local zoning codes and restrictions.
- Some cities and neighborhoods have restrictions on fencing.
- Check for obstructions.
- Check where frost line is.
- Mark and measure your yard.
Note: Where there are sections of yard less than 8 feet in length, panels can be cut down.
Place a stake in each corner of your yard and every 8 feet, as that is where posts will go.
Add up all your measurements and divide by 6 or 8, depending on the fence series/fence width you chose.
Think about where you would place your gates if you are going to have any.
- Count the number of corners and ends of your yard and that is the number of corner and end posts you will need. (If your fence stops at your house, a tree or a gate that is an end post.)
- Count the number of stakes you put in the ground every 6 or 8 feet and that is the number of line posts you will need.
Note: modify your calculations if your fence panels will not be 8ft. sections
- Count the number of gates and note the size.
- Count the number of sections (are sections 6 or 8 feet wide?)
- Don’t forget post tops and gate latches/hardware.
Install Your Fence
Tools you may need:
- Torpedo Level
- Circular Saw
- Ready Mix Concrete (1½ Bags per Post)
- Post Hole Digger
- Digging/Tamping Bar
- Stakes and String
- Tape Measure
Certain styles require additional tools (please consult Foremost Fence)
- Mark the fence location using string and line stakes.
- Starting with a corner or an end post; dig holes 6” to 12” in diamter and 24” to 36” deep (depending on style). Use the Center-to-Center measurements of the fence style being installed for post distance. Dig next hole. (Suggestion: do not dig more than 1 hole ahead until you are confident in your spacing)
- Set post to plumb level, tamp and secure, then insert or assemble section. Repeat. (If you need to shorten a section; cut rails at desired length. You may need to modify rails to insert into the post.)
- Upon completion of a “line”, step back and observe. You may want to lower posts (block of wood on top and slam) or raise posts to match the “grade” (pry, and re-tamp).
- Follow up specific instructions for gates.
- Clean, wipe down, spread some grass seed and enjoy!
