Are you planning to delineate the boundaries around your property? A classic wooden fence is the perfect answer and not only offers privacy, but also visually enriches your garden. In order to ensure a durable fence that lasts long into the future, there are a couple of things you should consider during planning and building. Wood should never be in direct contact with soil. Therefore, wooden fence posts tend to be anchored in the ground with so-called H anchors or post anchors made of galvanised steel – embedded in a concrete point foundation. Alternatively, you can also use ground impact or screw sleeves which, as the name suggests, are fixed directly in the ground without concrete. But all of these metal anchors do more than just secure the statics of your fence. They also protect it from rainwater.
What do I need to consider?
A wooden fence has little to fear: there are no large static loads on the posts or the fence elements themselves. The only thing you need to prevent is the risk of corrosion – as always with outdoor projects. When fastening the posts into ground anchors, it is important to use screws with the right diameter and a sufficient head size since most ground anchors have two 12.5-mm holes for each fastening.
