Hi all,

I’m putting a fence up to separate mine and next doors patio. I’m going to cut away the slabs in way of fence posts and postcrete them in. The first post will be screwed to the wall. The second set in postcrete. Then the 3rd post I want to set in postcrete but what is the minimum distance I have to come in from the edge of the patio. It’s about a 2ft drop down to the garden.

basically to be sure it is solid you either need it around 14-16" inches away from the edge and at least 35% off the post length into the ground or nearer the 2ft drop pretty much 45-50% into the ground
in otherwords assume no or little support in the ground above the lower level
