When it comes time to mixing the concrete you want to be sure to follow some basic concrete fundamental working tips. Many people think it is acceptable to pour dry concrete into a post hole and then add water. This is not an acceptable way to mixed concrete. Concrete needs to be mixed thoroughly prior to placing and the amount of water that is used is of a critical importance to the overall strength of the mix. You should use at the minimum bagged concrete specifically made for post holes or general use applications or ideally mixing your own concrete using the 321 mix. The 321 mix is a very common concrete mix that includes 3 parts of gravel, 2 parts of sand and 1 part of concrete. The gravel is usually half inch in diameter in the sand is a sharp washed masonry grade sand. The type of concrete used for this mix would be called either type N, type 10 or type 1 depending on where you are located. All three of these concrete brands are exactly identical and the name changes only depending on where you are located. When mixing this concrete together you want to use the minimum amount of water necessary to achieve the desired placement thickness.
Obviously, the size of the area to be fenced is the single biggest factor that determines the cost to install a fence (all other factors being equal). Most wood fences are installed in 8 foot sections so measure the perimeter of the property using a reel tape measure or surveyor's wheel and divide by 8. Pace off the distance to get a rough estimate or for existing fences count the existing fence posts and measure the length of 1 panel. The height of the fence will also have a major impact on the cost - most suburban privacy fences are six foot tall picket fences in one of the many styles. Eight foot and ten foot heights are also options for additional security, to obscure eyesores or for sound control purposes.
The next thing to do is to contact your local utilities and have them come and mark your property. Buried lines and cables must be considered before you begin digging fence posts. If there are lines buried where you planned to build, you will need to adjust your plans and re-measure before purchasing materials.
