Plan & clear your line
After designing your fence on paper, it’s time to build it. First, determine where exactly your fence needs to go, then prepare a line and clear if necessary. Consider pressure points such as stock camps, water ways along with site contours, erosion, and soil type.
Erect strainer assemblies
Your strainer assemblies (otherwise known as “end assemblies”) form the foundation of a good fence. Determine the number required and their location, as well as the depth and anchoring, as this is an important part of making your fence strong and long lasting. This is a time to consider if and where any gates are to be installed.
- Lay out your posts
Strain a sight wire close to the ground and lay your posts at a pre-determined spacing by ‘stepping out’ along the fence line. A straight fence line minimizes pressure points. Including posts in your fence line will ensure a stronger fence due to their increased strength and better ground holding ability, particularly in softer soils

Whenever you build a new house or renovate an old one you will invariably be left with some large bare patches of ground. Unless a solution for the area is found quickly, the soil will become eroded, the dirt will be brought inside and the weeds will begin to grow in no time at all.
Lawn is the most effective form of groundcover there is, and there are three ways you can go about establishing it:
Seed is by far the cheapest way, but it takes a long time until it is well established.
Sprigs or small seedlings can be planted at intervals, and also takes time to establish.
Turf can be laid at any time of the year; it is simple to do, economical and effective.
