Plan your DIY fence


Before you dig the first post hole for your new DIY Fence, you should draw an outline or plan of the fence.

Start with a blank piece of paper and a ruler; draw your property outline first.

Then draw in major structures like the house and pool.

Then begin to draw your fence and from here you can work out your fence gates and where your fence should go.   It will also help in calculating the number of post holes that need to be dug along with number of gates.

Once you have this info down of paper you will have a much better picture in mind about how the fence is going to look and you can use it to convince the sceptical partner that your DIY Fence will work out just fine.

Even if you choose not to go with the DIY Fencing option for one reason or another you can still use the drawing to communicate your idea and plans to the professional fencing agent.

Your DIY fence plan doesn’t need to be a work of art, but it should be neat enough that anyone can pick it up and work through it.
