One time of year that is painful for a Multi-Skilled Maintenance
company is January and February.
The winds in Lincolnshire wreck havoc on the fences, regardless of how well they are built. The water table is approx 18" down and the commercial fence erectors just have a JCB (Digger) with a back scoop scoop out a 4 ft hole, shove a 100mm x 100mm (4" x 4") post in there and pour in a bucket of concrete in the hole....Job done...
Now when they snap at ground level where they are constantly rotting due to the moisture and drying cycle breaking down and rotting the wood they become a nightmare to break out and replace. Not something for a shovel, hammer and chisel I can assure you (The types of fencing I am referring to are commonly seen at the top end of Quarrington (Sleaford) and the most of Greylees!!!!
To Remove 4 posts, 4 concrete balls the size of a small family car tool 2 of us 2 days to get done and that using pneumatic drills and Crow bars....
We still love the challenge though as usual and the customers were lovely, kind, thoughtful and let us get on with the job at hand.
