Fence Repair
Sept 14 to

This is the partially unassembled fence. There were 3 posts leaning hard to the west, and one broken off.

As well there is 6 to 8 inches of dirt and broken ornamental gravel pushed against the east side. Over grown by English Ive.

The panels were not attached to the posts, which didn't support the posts when storms tried to push them west. The east side of the fence is open yard, where as the west side is forest that stops the wind. Fence and panels would flex.

This post leaned west, and had been pulled north by the north panel leaning west. The orange strap clamps were used to put it back south, while the concrete base was dug up and shifted back to the east.

This is the replacement for the broken post. This was likely the start of the problems as it sits directly on top of a 7 inch diameter tree root that means it not set deep enough in the ground to be good support.

The last of the concrete for the new posts. Two levels (clamped to the post) to make sure it stands upright, a string line to TRY to keep it on the straight line of the fence. The red boards are the top rails from the fence panels used to get the right spacing for the panels to fit back in.
