Sometimes fencing companies are in such a rush while installing a new fence they can fail to properly prepare the ground. In terms of digging the right depth for the fence posts.
This can lead to a lot of wonky fences and also misaligned fencing panels if the ground preparation work is not completed right.
This article looks at how this can be avoided when constructing new fences within Cardiff.
Why it’s so important to get the ground work right!
Why ground obstructions should be removed
For example, some contractors may hit what are called ground obstructions, that’s during construction of a new fence in Cardiff. Fencing can therefore become misaligned and wonky if ground obstructions are worked around instead of removing.
This then causes some companies to erect fence posts around such obstructions.
This is not a good solution. That’s because this can lead to wonky, misaligned fencing because of poor preparation of the ground and soil.
Properly preparing the ground sometimes means levelling out of the earth and soil within your garden or front lawn area. This sometimes means using a mini excavator for such ground works.
This is why you need a fencing contractor who has the correct equipment such as excavators and attachments for moving the soil. This makes digging the holes for the fence a lot easier and cuts the time it takes to install a fence.
Properly preparing the ground also helps remove ground obstructions such as concrete and stone.
If you believe that there are ground obstructions within your garden or underneath the soil you should discuss this with your fencing contractor. This is because it sometimes can affect quote given within Cardiff. Fencing can then be constructed in a neat and correct way once the ground has been properly prepared.
What can happen if you neglect ground preparation when installing a new fence?
If you neglect the ground preparation when installing a new fence it is entirely possible for the fence construction to go wrong.
This is because without proper mapping out with the fence that’s going to be erected, the fence can quickly become misaligned. Ground obstructions such as pipes or concrete can also emerge within the ground and this needs to be removed prior to construction.
Sometimes some contractors try to work around ground obstructions by only digging shallow holes for the fence post. This can mean a great looking fence for the short term, but can then mean that the fence falls down later, simply because the holes have not been dug to a sufficient depth needed.
