Dig a hole for the terminal post along the edge of the house. The hole should be 18 to 30 inches deep and roughly 10 inches in diameter.
Fill the hole with concrete mix. Sink the pole into the mix, providing no more than 6 inches of clearance between the pole and the side of the house. Level the post to ensure a neutral angle. Allow the concrete to cure for 24 hours.
Attach a brace band to the top of the pole after the concrete is set. Gently hammer the post cap into place. A terminal pole will require two brace bands--one at the top and one at the bottom.
Secure the fence to the brace band and ensure proper tension.
Things You Will Need
- Concrete mix
- Terminal post
- 2 brace bands
- Post cap
- Do not attach a brace band directly to the house--the installation would require puncturing the siding, and depending on the location of the fence, the attachment point may not align with a wall stud. Attach a fence to a fence pole.
