Gate post repair
What ho possums!
The 100 x 100 wooden posts supporting the back garden gate have rotted at the bottom (there is a surprise!) Am fixing with concrete spurs set into the ground with PostCrete and bolted to the existing wooden supports, which are OK above ground.
Having dug out a 300mm x 600mm hole for the supports, the PostCrete will go around three sides of the concrete post but the forth side is the existing, rotting wood.
Should I remove this wood and pack PostCrete around the back? YouTube videos do not even suggest doing so, let alone even mention the old wood.
Toodle pip and thanks
