Fences can be challenging to install on hilly or uneven terrain. When the elevation on your property rises and dips with no rhyme or reason, it can be impossible to install a fence in the usual way, and will require uneven ground fence installation. In many situations, grading issues are not visible to the naked eye but can become apparent when a level string is posted along the property. Twin Cities Fence installers have methods and suggestions for installing fences on residential properties with grading inconsistencies.
No allowances are made for terrain changes on borders installed with a straight method. No matter the land’s grading, large posts are utilized to keep the top of the fence true and straight throughout. Unfortunately, this method nearly always leads to significant gaps between the ground and the bottom of the barrier.
Fence Racking Installation
When a fence is installed through the racking method, there are no gaps between the fence and the ground, but the top of the border will not be level and uniform. This method follows the property’s valleys and peaks during installation.
Fence Stepping Installation
This method allows the fencing to be dropped down in places with valleys and stepped up in areas where the ground rises. The stepping method is excellent for a property with a terrain where the grade changes prominently and frequently.
Materials For Uneven Ground Fence Install
PVC and aluminum fences are rack able and can be utilized for adapting to changes in grading on a property. In addition, they allow a barrier to be even with the ground through various terrain changes. On the other hand, wood fencing can be used for any of the methods previously mentioned but will require cutting to adhere to measurements of grade changes. This means that contractors will handle your installation post to post with the material between being cut to fit precise measurements.
