DIY fence - two simplest variants

Feb 19

The fence is often erected even before the construction of the house begins. It allows you to delimit the boundaries of the site, to protect the access of strangers to building materials, to protect against prying eyes. You can make such a fence with your own hands or entrust its construction to specialists.

Choose the appropriate option

To begin with, you need to decide on the construction of the fence and choose the right one for you based on such parameters as appearance, cost, speed of construction, durability. If the fence is temporary and built only during the construction and improvement of the site, then the first and last parameters are not so important.

  • Wooden fence. Its main advantage is its low cost. The appearance depends on the quality of the material used. It can be a nice, smooth fence or a rough, unedged board (for temporary construction). In any case, such a fence is easy to do with your own hands in a relatively short time.
  • A fence of a mesh grid.  It is assembled very quickly, it is distinguished by durability and reliability, but it will not be possible to hide from such eyes from the outside.
  • Fence from the profiled sheet. Having all the advantages of the previous construction, such a fence can also look very attractive and reliably cover the area from curious passers-by.
  • Concrete fence In the presence of special equipment or a large number of assistants, such a fence can also be assembled in a very short time. But you can not call this option temporary - the structure is monumental and rather expensive.
  • Brick fence. The most valid and durable option. But you are unlikely to be engaged in its construction on your own.
  • Slate fence  - non-standard use of standard material.
  • Wicker fence For example, from the vine.

After analyzing the listed options, we decided to choose a detailed description of a wooden fence and a fence from a professional protective sheet - the most accessible for individual assembly.

Wooden fence

Mark the perimeter of the site for the installation of the pillars. The distance between them should not exceed 2.5 m.

Council To support all were at the same level, set the pillars at the corners of the site and pull the cord between them.

Secure the supports by placing them level and tightly packed around the floor.

Connect the pillars at the top and bottom with parallel horizontal crossbars. They can be nailed or fastened with screws.

On the peg received: close to each other or with holes.

Install a palisade with a space
Council If the fence performs a temporary function, you can simply nail the brackets with a slab or other scrap wood.

Professional fence

The marking for such a fence is similar to the previous version, but as a support it is better to use not wooden posts, but metal pipes with a minimum diameter of 50 mm.

To ensure the stability of the supports, make holes using a drill to a depth of 1-1.5 m. Put supports and fill them with the concrete mix, pre-aligned vertically.

The use of a drill reduces the consumption of concrete mix.

When the concrete hardens, weld a pipe or metal wedges to the brackets. The distance between them should be less than or equal to the height of the professional sheet.

Fasten the plates with metal screws or special rivets. Fastening is carried out by a single wave.
