How do I mount a vinyl fence post?

Mounting a vinyl fence post is just about the most difficult step of installing a vinyl fence. It’s also one of the most important – if the posts aren’t plumb and correctly measured, other problems will be created for the rest of the installation process. Most vinyl fence posts should be mounted with about a third of their length below the ground. A properly prepared post hole will be approximately one foot in diameter and have a gravel base of several inches. Once the hole has been prepared, quick-set concrete should be poured into the hole. While the concrete is still wet, place the post down to the footing. Make sure everything is plumb and level, and then secure the post so that it stays that way as the concrete sets.
