Building a fence Answered

I am going to construct a fence between my garage and my house. 20 ft or so long, To keep my too small dogs contained. Here in lies the rub, I have already built one fence. it's still up and working fine, however in the construction I discovered how dense the crete is, ramset doesn't work, drilling? I would never get deep enough. So I have decided to use cement piers and 4x4 posts and sit the fence right on the concrete, with enough weight I am praying the fence will not move much, I only need to contain two 5# dogs its mostly ornamental. If anyone has attempted anything along these lines, please contact me with your triumphs and failures, or any advice you may have thanks!

. 5 gal plastic buckets should make good forms. If the set concrete doesn't slide out, they are fairly easy to cut off with a carpet knife. . My Pit-mix can (and will) climb my 4 ft chain-link fence. :(

I've seen places where they slap a bag of concrete onto a chain link fence for weight...and then it rains. The entire bag just turns into a big concrete weight around it all.
