Ensure a Level Fit

Use a speed square to ensure each plank sits level with the ground. Permanently secure to the post with wood screws.

Check Progress

As you work your way up the post, step back into the yard to examine progress for consistent spacing and level installation. If anything is crooked, it's best to fix it before moving higher up the post.

Continue to Top

With all planks checked for levelness, continue attaching each plank all the way up to the top of the post.
