Protect Your Posts
There are many things that can damage your wooden fence posts, such as spades, animals and water, but nothing causes more harm than a weed trimmer. If the surface treatment on a post is damaged by a line trimmer, it can absorb and trap water that can cause the fence post to rot. This is especially a problem in wet climates, where decay can set in quickly after the surface is breached. It can also give easier access to insects as the integrity of the post fails. This can lead to replacement of one or more of your fence posts. If matching replacement posts can't be found, you may have to replace the entire fence.
