DIY and Pro Help With Your Home Projects
Pound posts into the ground Make sure you get the ground really wet to minimize the effort required. You can but a special post hole tool or use a sledge hammer if you just have a few to install.
Dig holes, install the posts and pack them with dirt Once again you want the gound slightly wet to make digging easier. Don't dig the hole any larger (in diameter) than you have to.
Dig holes, install the posts and fill the hole with concrete. The last option is the best long term option but it can be a lot more work. If you chose this option, buy quick set cement. Pour the dry cement into the hole and then add the water and poke it a few times with a stick. Do not waste your time mixing the cement before you add it to hole. I have had to remove a dry poured post footer and it was as solid as any cement.
