  • How To Successfully Install A Fence On Uneven Ground

    Do you need a fence installed on uneven ground? If yes, this article will help you successfully accomplish this installation by providing information on how to install a fence on uneven ground. Get started now.

    Most fences (excluding panel fencing) can be safely and properly installed on uneven ground through contour fence construction. The rails of the fence should follow your property using the contour method, no matter if the ground goes up or down. The task is moderately easy.

    To install a fence on uneven land, you will need the following items:

    Ø      A tape measure

    Ø      Measuring wheel

    Ø      Hammer

    Ø      Mattock

    Ø      Ball of twine

    Ø      Post hole digger

    Ø      Shovel

    Ø      Level

    Ø      Pine or plastic stakes

    Ø      Iron tamping rod

    Ø      Nails

    Ø      Fence rails/planks

    Ø      Saw

    Ø      8-foot-tall wooden fence posts

    The planks that will be used for fence rails will need to be measured. The rails should be nailed to the middle of the fence posts. Next, the fence line needs to be setup. You should use a measuring wheel to install the fence. Be sure to inspect the straightness of the line as you install the fence.

    Afterwards, stakes should be replaced with post-holes. Use a mattock to dig the pits of the hole. Once this task is completed set the fence posts and determine where you want to place the rails on your post.

    Nail the top and bottom rails to the center-line of the first post and keep proceeding until all posts are nailed from top to bottom.

    Remember to follow the contours of the ground by always nailing the fence rails and follow the contours of the ground by nailing the fence rails in the same positions on the fence rails.
