This type of foundation is mainly used for wooden fences or fence from the grid, less of corrugated board.Besides columnar foundations for fence much simpler in execution than other designs and much cheaper.Its application it is advisable to heaving soils.Distance between the posts depends on the design of the future and the fence is from 2 to 3 meters.At such a distance from each other dig grooves.For this purpose, it is amiss garden auger.

Threaded foundation piles
screwed foundation piles - also a good option

recess diameter is determined by the diameter of the pillars plus 15-30 cm. The depth of the pits is 100-150 cm. The bottom of the trench is filled with 20 cm of sand mixed with gravel and plenty of water drained.Inserted into the recess poles aligned vertically with a plumb and level and filled with sand concrete to ground level.As the supports can be used corners, wood treated with preservative, brick, square metal pipe.To the inside of the hollow pillar did not get the water and the snow caps on please.The result is a hard-standing pillars of the pillars on which are mounted the cross.

Combined band-pole version ↑

applied a foundation under the brick fence, mixed (wooden fence with stone or brick pillars) fence of corrugated.Accordingly markup dug a trench width of 20-25 cm, a depth of 0.5 m. Every 2-3 m made recesses for future columns support the fence.The width of these holes should be at least 0.4 m and a depth below the level of soil freezing, about 1.5 m.

Under support for greater strength, it is desirable to use a frame made of metal.By inserting a column in a hole, recess is filled with concrete, and the vertical support level is controlled or plumb.Next to the trench laid metal reinforcements thickness of 8-12 mm and as poured concrete until the ground level.
