Well I have the first harvest from last week's storm.... Its a small estate house with a 6' close board fence - supported on 6" posts concreted in - it is a proper fence. Trouble is the storm broke the rotten posts at the ground, it was being supported by large shrubs either side. I have put in a temporary repair today by installing 45 degree braces against the broken posts (using new 2.1M posts fixed to stakes.
The client is not rich, but she is a loyal lady who has kept thinking of work for me every week come rain or shine - As all the wood not touching the ground is in A1 condition it seems unfair to scrap the whole fence.
I was going to put in a concrete repair spurs on the 4 broken posts.... but there is a massive amount of concrete around the base of each post - but not enough to mount a Metpost on, so even with a kango it is not going to be that quick a job, even if it is possible. The only thing I can come up with is bracing it with new posts at 60 deg, basically tidying up what I have done today - then growing clematis or roses up them.
Does anyone have any other ideas??
