How to set a wood post and real estate sign in the ground

If you are looking for a longer term and more permanent solution for your real estate sign, setting it in the ground with concrete is your best option 


Setting a Post

Step 1

Place your form tube into the hole. You can buy these in any local Ontario hardware store. Set the post ( we discussed how to pick the best 4x4 posts and wood in our previous blog)  into the form and temporarily stand straight.

Step 2

Pour the dry mix into the tube. Follow the instructions on the bag of dry mix. This too can be sourced at any local hardware store 

Step 3

Pour water into the dry mix and allow it to soak in. Use enough water to saturate the dry mix fully  take your time and do this step properly 

Step 4

Fill the remainder of the hole with soil dug from the hole. It sets in 20 to 40 minutes. Don’t rush this step. Let it set properly. Wait four hours before placing heavy objects.

This will give you a great strong foundation and base for all your signs
