Bag Concrete

Setting Fence Post?

HELP! I recently put up a 6ft privacy fence, the fence post holes are 30 inch deep. I placed one 80lb bag concrete (mixed) followed immediately by packing the original clay soil to reach the top. (overall the hole is half concrete and then half soil) The fence appears ok but should I have waited for the concrete to cure before filling the second half with soil? The post are pressure treated 4x4's . This is my first fence (clearly), any help is appreciated. I am just worried I did a poor job, and I am concerned it will now sag or something or I will have problems with it? Thanks for any help.

It sounds like your fence is going to stay right where it is for a very long time. As far as packing the original clay on top of your fresh concrete, it would have been a better idea to let it set for a while. If you mixed the cement very wet, it will take a while to dry out (especially in clay) but the soil should eventually let the cement dry out and it shouldn't affect your posts in the long run.

You can always dig up the clay from one of the posts then poke it with a stick to see if it has hardened. A more dramatic way to check your posts (not recommended) before you build your fence on top of your posts is to remove the dirt from a post then pull up on the post as hard as you can, if the post comes out, the cement didn't hardened around the post properly and you may have a do-over on your hands

Setting your fence posts 30 inches in the ground with an 80 lb bag of cement should do the trick no matter how long you waited for the cement to dry. Packed clay/soil will hold your fence in place even without the cement, until some strong winds come along and move it side to side.

Hope this helps.
