Concrete post / gravel boards and panels

Postby iangessey » Sun Jun 28, 2020 6:30 am

This will be my first concrete post fence so excuse me if the question sounds a little simplistic.
I am going to be using 6ft x 6ft wooden panels with 150mm gravel boards with 8ft posts.
If the accepted wisdom is that 2ft of the concrete post sits underground and the fence post is 6ft do i fit the gravel board in as we are already at 8ft at this point - 2 below, 6 above ground?
Do I set the fence post in a shallower hole?

Hi iangessey
You either need to buy longer posts or low height panels.
