The first question most owners planning to install a Hanging Vegetable Garden On Fence in the winter ask is ‘can or not it’s done’? Our answer at All Seasons Vinyl is a definite ‘yes’ – if it is done correctly. As a budget-conscious homeowner myself, you can easily understand exactly how important it may be to do-it-yourself.
What most contractors won’t let you know could be the trade secret to battling the frozen winter ground so that you can successfully install that much needed Hanging Vegetable Garden On Fence – all on your own. While our experts at All Seasons Vinyl are staffed for the very intent behind assisting our customers with your issues, permit me to extend many ways the right path – for that easy answer to the most common misconception: you can’t install in the winter.
This idea couldn’t be more wrong. First, let’s see the challenge that awaits you. The primary problem is that frozen ground pushes posts and concrete from the ground. This makes it vital to adjust how you dig and fill the hole so it remains solid and stable. The best winter time to completely tackle this project is when snow blankets the floor, actually acting just like a warming blanket to maintain the floor pliable. Vinyl fencing is the foremost material to utilize without notice of the season, as there is less compression and expansion of the material during installation.
Whether there is snow or otherwise, and regardless of seriousness of the elements, one particular tool and an instant tip will begin to bring success for your requirements on that DIY project. The tool to acquire will be the auger, to make the hole in the necessary shape. The key to defeating that frozen ground is to shape the hole just like a bell while it freezes, the concrete would really push down, not up, making your post sturdy and solid.
Further techniques such as adding gravel on the bottom for drainage ahead of filling with concrete are standard to any post installation. For greater detail on installing your fence, visit our How To Install on our website.
