Wood posts (both cedar and treated) that are in contact with the ground can rot out in less than five years depending on soil conditions. Treated wood posts may also twist and warp as the posts dry out over time. A galvanized steel post will never rot or twist. It will last a lifetime. When installing a steel post be sure to use one that can be covered to look like wood. With a steel post that is covered the fence will look like wood and but will have the durability of steel.

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.

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.
