Simple "Trick" Makes Corner Posts Solid
“They stay straight even when set in high water areas,” he says.
Sukraw sets the post at a slight angle away from the draw of the wire. Before tamping it in all the way, he places a large chunk of concrete – or a 2 to 3-ft. plank - against the wire draw side of the post. The plank or concrete pieces are placed below ground level and tamped in place as well. They serve as an in-ground brace when the wires are drawn tight.
“As I tighten the wires, the post pulls straight up,” he says. “The underground brace keeps it solid. “
