The erection of a fence fence succeed even untrained and is done with a few tools. The material is offered by the meter as a so-called rolling fence - usually made of very weather-resistant sweet chestnut - and is available in many lengths and heights. Chestnut wood is weatherproof and insensitive to fungal and insect infestation due to its high proportion of tannic acid. It does not need to be treated, comes from European forests and is therefore ecologically harmless. Incidentally, the ends of the English Staketenzaun model are dull, the French sharpened.
The fence fence fits a farmer's garden. The irregular shape makes the charm and brings country house flair in the garden
Delivered from the roll, the fence fence can easily be set up in the garden: The split chestnut woods are attached with metal staples depending on the height of two to three wires. As a support are used in the ground beaten wood posts to which the Staketenzaun is screwed.
Step by step: Setting up the fence fence
An auger can be used to pre-drill holes for the fence posts on heavily consolidated floors (left). This makes the impact (right) easier. A chalk or pen stroke marks the depth of impact (at least 30 centimeters)
If you do not have a suitable auger at hand, you can use a sturdy iron bar to drive a smaller hole into which the thicker wood pile is then knocked. A heavy mallet is the ideal tool for hitting fence posts. Splintering of the wood is thereby reliably avoided. If you have a sledge hammer made of iron, place a wooden board on the pole as a precaution. This also prevents damage to the post. Tip: With a heavy post or piling ram, fence posts can also be driven in without much effort and risk of splintering. The heavy sleeve is simply slipped over, lifted and dropped as often as necessary. Such rams can be borrowed at many hardware stores.
For attachment to the post, the corresponding fence slat is pre-drilled approximately at the level of the respective tension wire (left) and then screwed tight. Pull the fence to the next post with straps (right) - so you can easily attach it to it without sagging in the middle
As quite practical and stable on top, it has been proven to screw the fence slats with several wood screws at the level of the wires to the posts. Since the fence can stand directly on the ground, you do not have to laboriously raise the slats to a certain height. The distance of the posts varies according to the height of the fence and the required stability, but should not exceed two meters - otherwise the fence will hang in the middle. In order to be able to align and fix the slats exactly vertically, especially at the end of the roll, a simple trick helps: With two straps, which are attached directly above or below the wires, the fence slats can be pulled evenly to the next post and then effortlessly tighten the screws.
