straighten 4x4 post

engineeredgardenMay 2, 2008

I have set 8 posts in the ground with concrete (18" deep),and one of the posts decided to bend over,apparently due to the outside elements.It's sticking out of the ground 6-1/2 ft,with no support.I'd really like to straighten it back to plumb,because from the road-it looks like a retard is constructing something.Does anyone have a "fix" for it?

Bust up the concrete & put in a new post. You probably used treated pine, it does that sort of thing. Best to construct you fence as fast as possible.
