Amongst all fence options available, a chain link fence is a cost-effective option for protecting property and equipment in both residential and commercial settings. The YouTube video, “How to Install a Chain Link Fence,” gives step-by-step details on how anyone can install one in the backyard.
Since installing a chain link fence requires little technical know-how, you can do it yourself by following the steps in this video rather than hiring an installer or a carpenter. The installation involves marking the layout, excavating, placing the terminal posts, installing hardware, etc.
It is convenient and uses little energy when compared to its traditional counterparts.
Stakes, string lines, and batter boards indicate the layout, and stakes mark the terminal posts. The corners of a layout can also be squared using the “3-4-5” approach. The next phase involves drilling post holes with equipment such as a digger bar, shovels, and a motorized drill. The positioning of the terminal posts and line posts comes after. The final steps are the attachment of the fabric, the insertion of tension wires, and the installation of hardware and top rail on the terminal posts.
