We produce concrete for the fence posts
Before you begin to install the poles forfence, it is necessary to prepare the appropriate building materials and tools: scrap, garden drill, building level, hydro level, twine, roofing material, cement, sand, water, gravel and a container for stirring the solution.
Beginning of work
Concreting posts for the fence begins withmarking a place on the site for drilling pits in the ground using a garden drill (if you have a gasoline, this will greatly facilitate the task). To do this, you need to determine the location of the first pillar. There it is necessary to drive in a wooden peg and stretch the twine to the place of the last pillar. This is how the whole fence is mapped. When drilling, you should stick to the line so that the fence is level. Next, you need to mark out the place where the concrete is to be concreated for the fence. Between them you need to make a different distance, depending on the material selected. Columns for mesh-mesh are installed at a distance of 3 m, for a wooden fence or a fence of profiled sheeting - 2.5 m. If the distance between them is more than 3 m, this can lead to sagging of the lag.
Drilling pits and concreting the pillars for fence
In order to know what depth to drill,The auger screw makes the marker a marker so that the distance is 100-110 cm from the ground. Hold the drill vertically, so that the pit is flat and does not go to the side. Further, when they drilled to the mark, to prevent contact of the solution with the ground, a piece of roofing felt rolled into a roll was placed in a pit. Let's move on to the installation. On a pole from the top, a distance of 150 cm is noted and lowered to this mark. If necessary, the pit should be deepened or poured, so that the distance was sustained. Then they drop a broken brick or rubble and tamp it with crowbar. The main thing is not to cover it completely and leave a distance of about 15-20 cm to the top for the cement slurry. The initial stage of concreting the pillars for the fence is finished. The last column should be put on the first, for this use a hydro level.
Concreting posts for fence: "for" and "against"
There is an opinion that the concrete pillars withtime "squeezes out" from the soil. This can be only if they were concreted to a depth of less than a meter. But if they dig in deeper, nothing will happen to them. One of the main advantages - concrete pillars do not rot in the ground, unlike those that are driven into the ground and not protected by a layer of concrete. Even a well-primed and colored tree, driven into the ground, is not protected from decay. If the pillars are not concreted, but to score, the fence will be "walking", since there is no possibility to expose it by level. If you flatten a clogged post, it will only loosen up, and then you will need to think about the reliability of such a design. The mechanized method for the quality of execution is better, because such a concreting of pillars for fence, the price of which will immediately increase, makes them stronger and even. It is worth thinking about the fact that it's better to do everything right at once and not take care of it for several years. Also, from the aesthetic side, the concrete pillar is better, because the hammered pillar will be deformed from above.
