Fencing your yard allows your pets to run around without the risk of invading your neighbor’s property or ever getting lost. A chain-link fence is a cost-friendly option. Ensure that you adhere to the building regulations of your area, and check the boundaries to guarantee that the fence falls within your property. This video illustrates the steps to take in chain link fence installations.
The first step is to mark the area to be fenced using sticks and string lines.
The strings ensure that the sticks are in a straight line. Once the sticks are planted all around, the string is removed to make it easier to dig. For a few holes, a digging bar and shovel will suffice. For more holes, a digging machine is to make them work faster.
After digging the holes, the poles are set using concrete and given time to cure. The next step is to fix the necessary hardware on the poles: brace bands, tension bands, caps, and loops. Loops are fixed on the line posts for the top rail to slide through, while a tension wire runs along the bottom.
The mesh fabric is then attached to the posts and fastened with brace bands. The final step in chain link fence installations is the fixing of the gate, and your pets can now run around safely.
