Tips on building a backyard fence

Posted by ChrisR on January 4th, 1999 12:12 PM

I plan to build a backyard fence this spring to contain
our two 30 pound dogs. I getting conflicting advice on
how to set the wooden 4x4 posts.

Some say bury the posts below the frost line (31" in Indiana)
and some say 2 feet is fine. The exposed part of the posts will
be 4-5' tall. Some also tell me to set the posts in concrete
(especially on posts for gate) and some say just fill the holes
with 6" of gravel and tamp dirt around the posts - no
concrete. Some of the posts will be in a small drainage
detention area too. Any advice for me? Thanks!
