Re-using Fence Posts
« on: July 19, 2020, 12:17 »
So I知 just about to replace all of my fence posts in my garden as most of them have rotted at ground level but the 6ft of timber above ground level is in good condition.

I don稚 really want to throw them away and wondered if anyone had any ideas on how I could re-use these at my allotment?

Frame for an approx 4' high fruit cage for fruit bushes?
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

Could you run them by a saw into 4 pieces in their length & put a point on the end of each one , they池e the sort of size I use regularly for holding up the leaves of the potatoes , making temporary enclosures etc
