Re: Setting fence post on slopes

If you're going to step, you're not only going to need a little more in the ground, you're going to need more above to handle the offset. Are these posts going to be long enough to do what you need?
How are you planning on accommodating for the slope and how much slope are we talking about (i.e., how much rise for how long of run )?
