Fence posts should be dug into the ground at a depth that is roughly 1/3 or 1/2 of the height of the post above ground. For example, a six-foot tall fence would require a hole at a depth of around two to three feet. This ensures that the post is sturdy and will hold solid in the ground. Additionally, the hole created for the post should also be roughly three times the width of the post. So, a post with a diameter of four inches would require a diameter of about 12 inches wide. Following these two rules of thumb ensures successful installation of fence posts and fence systems.

Even with this knowledge, fence installation is often best left to the professionals. And for reliable fence installation in the Tampa, Florida, area, people have consistently counted on the experts at Smith Fence – one of the area’s most trusted fencing companies since 1977.
