Laying Out Fences and Gates

Laying Out Fences and Gates

The best way to lay out a fence is with batterboards, which are a bit fancier than stakes and string but allow you to reposition the string without moving the stake. For string, use mason's line-it won't sag like regular string does. If the fence has two or more sides,...

Digging Footings

Digging Footings

Digging footing holes with a clamshell digger is quick and inexpensive, but makes sense only if you need only a few shallow holes in loamy soil. For most every other installation, rent a machine to make the work easier. You have two choices-either a one-person or two -person ...
