More Information

Concrete morticed posts are a viable long-lasting, rot-free alternative to wooden mortised posts for closeboard and palisade fencing.

Fitting

Concrete posts are generally dug into the ground and secured with either a dry mix of ballast and cement (about 7 to 1 mix with no extra water added) rammed up around the post or postmix (follow directions on the bag). The amount of each required will depend on the size and depth of the hole. Try to keep the hole diameter reasonably tight around the post; 200 to 250mm (8″ to 10″) is good. Generally, the hole should be a minimum of 600mm (2′) deep for any fence height. For fence heights over 1.5m, we recommend increasing the hole depth to a minimum of 750mm (2′ 6″). For concrete mortised posts, the hole depth is preset by the manufacturer. We do not recommend reducing the hole depth by cutting off the bottoms of concrete posts.
