When i went out this morning i had a section of fence blown down near the gate. I noticed the post broken the other day, it looks as if someone has backed their car into it. So i can't fix the fence before i get a new post and don't even know where to begin. That's in a couple of foot of concrete, it will be a hell of a job to dig up, and those posts weigh a ton.
Still there's Easter gone. Something will have to be done.

Cut the post nearer to the ground, but with enough left that you can pull it out still and kick it to loosen it too. Cuts the weight down a bit.
Dig around rather than just down cos likely a whole load of ballast there too and if you can move the ballast then it comes out tiny bit easier.
And boy do I feel for ya. :rotfl:

I've been thinking about it, you can see the steel rods inside the concrete post where it's broken. I wonder if i could knock it down and cut the steel right by the ground. Then instead of digging and getting a concrete post, just get a wooden one straight on top of the ground, Then if i get some sort of steel bracket to screw to the ground and hold the post. Even if it was only 4 great big shelf brackets, on the ground and up the post.
I'll work something out, or like the Op ask my neighbour to fix it.

I'm not sure what to do about this but our neighbours fence seems to be rotting away and has become really weak and bowing. We've had to patch it up on numerous occasions where it's failed to do it's duty just to keep our dogs on our yard. Last night we had some really strong winds which, surprise surprise, damaged the fence even more. Hubby had to go out and screw bits back on before work so the dogs wouldn't get through. If we didn't have dogs I wouldn't be so worried. My only concern is they have recently had two rabbits and if our dogs get to them it might end up badly. What do we do? We can't afford to spend money on someone else's fence. But at the same time understand it is our responsibility to keep our dogs safe.

Some nice people on here! If the wooden posts are OK, how about getting a roll of chicken wire and tacking that along the length of the fence? Relatively cheap solution.It is annoying when neighbours don't shoulder their responsibilities.
