Hi, I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village. Today we will show you how to build a privacy fence around your yard. Sometimes you would also need a pick ax. This is a pick for breaking it up and this is the other end for kind of digging it out. You would need this also. Another tool that you would need is just a standard pointed shovel for digging out the hole. So then you would also need what is often referred to as a sharp shooter type shovel that's used for digging into, deep into the hole. This type of shovel is good for that. This is also good for digging out the bottoms of the holes which should be shaped as a mushroom or a bell shape towards the bottom of the hole. Which would help prevent the post from tilting over time. So this is called a sharp shooter.
