I am planning on building two concrete gate pillars which will have a rough rendered finish to match the main property where we live. The gates themselves will be 2m in length creating a 4m wide entrance, and made from softwood to try and keep the weight down.
I was originally thinking of using simple concrete blocks to construct but give the weight the pillars will have to hold, what is the best way to construct them? I am thinking hollow blocks and fill the void with rebar and concrete? Any alternatives?
