Idea Keeps Fenceposts Looking Good"I had trouble for years trimming grass around the base of treated wood fenceposts on my property. After only a few trimmings, the black fence coating would be eaten away by the trimmer string, leaving an unsightly gap at the bottom of each post," says James Columbia, Maysville, Ky.
"I tried wrapping the post bases with plastic tubing and wire mesh but I didn't like the way that looked. Then I happened to find Plasti-Kote Truck Bed Liner on sale at Wal-Mart. I bought a couple of cans and sprayed a coating over the bottom 6 to 8 in. of each post. The spray dried to the same color as the post coating and has stood up to weekly trimmings for the past two years without a scratch. The spray is available in gallon paint containers, but I prefer aerosol cans for simpler application. I can spray a double coating on 5 to 6 posts per can."
