Setting Fence Posts: Installing Concrete Footing

When setting fence posts, installing concrete footing can fit your fence building needs, but you must then decide whether to mix your own or have ready-mixed concrete delivered by truck.

Power mixers (electric or gas) can be rented from home centers and rental outlets. They are particularly useful if you want to mix your own concrete ingredients and have a large number of holes to fill.
