A chain-link fence is a great way of creating boundaries around a location like your yard while still keeping the space open and being able to see all around. If you are looking for something to provide seclusion then a chain-link fence is probably not the best choice for you unless you are going to plant hedging along the fence. But by itself, a chain-link fence is very poor for seclusion as it is so open.

As with all other home improvement projects, the first step when installing a chain-link fence is to check if you need any building and zoning permits before you install your fence. Once this is worked out you may start. Use string and stakes to mark out the area where the fence will run. Find your underground utilities and stake out the place they are in so you do not interfere with them.

Use the post hole digger to dig holes 8-10 inches wide with an even bottom and not a rounded one, in other words, the posts must rest level in the hole. Plant your terminal posts first (corner, end, and gate posts) and use the cement to keep them in position. Use the level to guarantee that the posts are straight and level.

Next, dig holes for the line posts a maximum of 10 feet apart, between the terminal posts, 4 inches shorter than the terminal posts and cement them into place too; see to it that they are also straight.
