What are Fence Posts?

Fence posts are an integral and key structural support, set into the ground at regular intervals to reinforce fence panels and to hold them in place.

If the fence posts are too weak, the fence may collapse under pressure or in strong winds.

For most privacy and general-purpose fences, 6 or 8 feet between posts is standard.

There are 2 types of fence posts you can buy, concrete or wood.

The backbone of any fence in your garden, our pressure treated fence posts are strong and durable.

Fence Post Sizes

Fence posts generally need to be 6-8 inches in diameter, 8 feet long and set a minimum of 3-1/2 feet deep for a standard 6ft high fence.

To determine the proper length, add together the depth of setting, which should be no less than 3-1/2 feet in the ground, plus the height of the top wire above the ground, plus 6” extra.

What Size Fence Posts Do You Need For a Fence?

Fence Posts Spacing

Most fence posts can be spaced 8 to 12 feet apart. While this is a general criteria, it doesn’t cover all scenarios.

For instance, high tensile fence can have larger spacing, requiring line posts every 15 to 20 feet for field fence styles, and as much as 20-30 feet for high tensile barbed and smooth wire.

What Is The Best Spacing For Fence Posts?

Fence Post Preservation

Simply setting the posts in concrete does create a condition that will accelerate rot in the bottom of the posts. With pressure-treated posts, the rot will be slow.

Fence Post Installation

Due to the sheer weight of either concrete or wood fence posts, installation takes a great deal of time and effort. This usually requires an extra pair of hands or two to ensure a safe and efficient job is complete.

Fence Post Treatment

When it comes to rot prevention, you should treat the post above ground and the wood post below ground. The bottom of the post is most susceptible to rot, as it’s in constant contact with moisture from the ground.
