Setting An Upright
Using stirrups or uprights to support a post out of the ground is a great way to provide longevity for your fence or structure as the wooden post is less likely to suffer any rot.
If you are setting uprights or stirrups to install a pergola post or posts to support a roof structure please refer to the pergola manufacturer to ensure bagged concrete mix is appropriate. If a defined strength of concrete is required then its time to have pre-mixed concrete delivered via a truck.
Tools you will need:
- Spirit level
- Tape measure
- String line
- Post shovel or long handled shovel
- Measuring jug
- Hose or bucket
- Spray marker paint
- Rod for tamping
Although you can use any product from the Cement Australia concrete range, we recommend Concrete Mix for strength & durability.
