I want to build fence on my drive next right on the boundary line with my neighbour. We have a constant stream of tenants next door and my car keeps getting knocks as they use my drive as theirs.
Problem is there is a clay drain pipe right under the boundary line so the maximum depth I can dig to is only 12 inches. The other problem is that the houses are joined at our garages so I can't move the fence in at all. The drive is made up of soft tarmac so I can't screw into it.
I'm really after some advice, do you think 12inch hole and concrete base is enough to support a 4ft wooden fence ?
I thought about driving some metal rods in at angles away from the pipe so they form some extra anchors in addition to the concrete base.
Has anyone had this before, am I fighting a losing battle?
