What most contractors won’t show you is the trade secret to battling the frozen winter ground to help you successfully install a whole lot of needed Fence Mounted Garden Boxes – yourself. While our experts at All Seasons Vinyl are staffed for that very intent behind assisting our customers with your issues, allow me to extend many ways the right path – with the easy answer to the most common misconception: you can’t install in winter.
This idea couldn’t be more wrong. First, let’s view the challenge that awaits you. The primary problem is that frozen ground pushes posts and concrete out from the ground. This makes it important to adjust how you dig and fill the hole therefore it remains solid and stable. The best winter months to really tackle this project is when snow blankets the soil, actually acting as being a warming blanket to hold the soil pliable. Vinyl fencing is the best material to utilize without notice of the year, since there is less compression and expansion of the pad during installation.
Whether there’s snow or otherwise, and whatever the seriousness of weather, one simple tool and a quick tip are going to bring success for you on that DIY project.
