Thinking of adding a light to the yard? Do you have fence posts in place but want to dress them up a bit? How can a fence post add curb appeal to the home? The good news is that we have all the answers.
Fence Armor® teamed up with maker and DIYer April Wilkerson to show you how. April is one of those geniuses who knows how to do many things and how to show us too. Even better news is that the work need not take long; taking on these DIY projects is not a chore. Your garden posts will be a hit, and you can take all the praise.
Let’s take a closer look at April’s video and see about adding a light to the yard.
Getting to work on adding a light to the yard
Preparation is half the battle.
When working outdoors, make sure you have the right tools, and if you need to hire someone, so be it. April makes the work look easy, and if you follow her tips, you will not have any problems.
With the groundwork done properly, the work will flow along. Choose a spot close to the house for your first project and treat it as practice for bigger jobs. Adding curb appeal comes with any fencing or lighting project. Think of how many people will see the fence post after adding a light to the yard.
You will want the post to stay looking great, of course.
Protection is vital for a fence post
Every fence post goes into the ground. For that reason alone, you need to always use pressure-treated fence posts. The deep treatment will give solid protection both above and below ground level.
Why not add an extra layer to the fence post for decades of protection against all kinds of weather? Fence Armor® Postsaver Sleeves will give your post all the protection it needs. As April shows in her video, they are easy to install. Once in place, they stay there and will give you years of peace of mind. The Postsaver® sleeves work at the ground line level, keeping rot, termites, and fungi away.
You can also add Fence Armor® Post Guards to stop trimmers and mowers from damaging the wood.
How about some curb appeal when adding a light to the yard?
A fence post is just a piece of wood in the dirt doing a job. Right? Not so, and you can easily add some curb appeal to a fence post with fence post caps and finials. You can add fence post caps and finials to your deck, mail post or even a lamp post in the yard.
Fence Armor® Post Caps are simple to attach. They will fit any 4 x4 post size, and you do not need a special tool to fit one to the fence post. Our unique interior cap claw ensures the fence post caps sit tightly in place. Take a look at this quick video for a better idea. The fence post caps are American-made of American steel and are finished with a powder coating for superior rust-free protection.
With the fence post caps in place, you can add your choice of finials. Our selection includes the classic Fleur de Lis or the Ball Top Quad. For lovers of the Lone Star state, why not show your pride with a Texas Star Lasso finial. The Acorn Flag holder is ideal for Fourth of July celebrations or to fly the Stars and Stripes, or the state flag, when in the mood.
