Don't forget!
If you choose a dip treated panel you will need Gravel Boards, one for each of your panels.

Fence Posts
Step 2 - Choose your fence post(s)

If you choose a rough sawn fence panel then a rough sawn fence post will complement the panel. If you choose a planed fence panel then an Ultima post will complement the panel.

Step 3 - Choose your fixings

Brackets - Use 'L' or 'U' brackets to fix gravel board & panel to post. You'll need one bracket per post for the gravel
board and three for each side of a 1.8m (6') panel.

Fixing into soil or concrete?
You'll need posts 61cm (2') higher than your panel – e.g. an 8' post for a 6' panel.
Either drive a fence spike into the soil or dig a 61cm (2') hole and concrete in.

Fixing onto a hard surface?
You'll need a Fencebase and the same height post and panel.

Remember
That you'll need one more fence post than panels e.g. 4 posts for 3 panels
