Keep Frost Heaves in Check
New England winters can wreak havoc on your fence. Frost heaves left unchecked or unrepaired may lead to leaning fence posts or gates no longer working correctly. Here’s what you should do:
1) Level each fence post after the winter is over, and the ground is no longer frozen
2) Tamp the soil around each post with a bar tamp to firm up the foundation
3) Add sand or stone dust around the post; tamp this down as well
4) Repeat numbers 1-3 periodically to keep your fence straight, strong, and working order for years to come.
