How do you calculate the required length of new posts?

Due to the many factors that contribute to the fitting of fence panels, there is no specific length to which your fence post should be.

These factors include:

  • Soil type
  • Gradient of the land
  • Type of post chosen
  • Type of fence panal

An example is if you chose a concrete post for a flat garden, for a 6ft fence your post would have to be planted at the depth of a 1/3 of your fence panel. So for this fence, 6 ÷ 3 = 2 so the post would have to be planted a 2ft deep so therefore you would need an 8ft fence post.
