Garden gate hell!
No idea whether anyone can help me but nothing ventured nothing gained. Firstly, I live in Germany (this is pertinent). Attached are photos of the garden gate of the house we bought last year. It is in a terminal state. Now, normally I would purchase two posts, new gate etc and dig big holes, fill em with concrete. However, in Germany there is a predilection toward using post sleeves (also a pic. I couldn’t rotate pics]. I am a little lost with them. Will they be strong enough (posts have hedge either side so gate only has posts for support). Do I set the sleeves in the concrete first or put posts in with supporting bolts and then in concrete? Basically (as you can probably tell} I am somewhat clueless. I have tried sourcing 2.4 metre posts but they are either not available or ludicrously expensive. Any advice, hints, tips, comments are all gratefully received. Oh, you can also get sleeves you just hammer in which is probably why every other fence I see has a rather precarious hold on remaking perpendicular! Cheers
