Fence Project Update - End of Day 1

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

The fence project is off to a great start.  So far I am really pleased with the quality of work being done by this company.  I have been taking a lot of pictures and here are the highlights from day one.

The first step was they measured off approximately where each post would go based on the string line I had set for them.  They dropped a post and a bag of concrete at each mark.


Another view from the driveway, gorgeous Spring day.


Now the fun part, they started digging each hole by hand.


Each hole was approximately 2 feet deep.



After they had an entire set of holes dug, they dropped in the posts.


They started by plumbing each corner post first, and then tied a string to each corner post.  This string line was used to plumb the additional line posts in a perfect line.


How do I know it is a perfect line?  Because it looks like one post from this angle straight on.


I stepped to the side and snapped a picture and you could see all the posts on this side have been set.


Another angle looking toward the driveway, next step, putting up rails.
