Wood post in concrete
I have nearly completed a triangle pergola in my back garden with pressured treated wood, I used post mix and concrete to fix my 4x4 post into the ground with about 1-2 inch of gravel at the bottom and around the post . I am a bit worried now that I have done it totally wrong and it going to rot in no time .
I don't think I added enough drainage, and just before I added post mix I hammered the posts into the ground a little bit to make them more secure, I didn't think at the time but the posts are probably sat in a wet clay now. Does concrete make wood rot faster as well?
I don't know what to do now? pull it down and try and fix it some how. How long do you think it would last if I just leave it? The project probably cost me about £110.
