Instead of fixing to the side of the property, is it possible to fix to the ground? Could you fix a fence post to the ground either using a bolt down bracket or even sinking the post down into the ground for a couple of feet and possibly concreting in as this will give you a sturdy and solid point to build a frame off of?

Kind Regards
