Here is where I installed gate post then built the gate in place.

That is cedar fencing and there are NO screws into the steel

Thumbs up

Channing,

Thanks....

Old school REBAR.

Exactly what I'm leaning towards.
Do you recall the thickness?

Bob

Yup

5.5" thick. Deeper around load points like posts and edge dip to retain dirt and "float" footing.

Mine is 5-6 inch - I am not sure of type of concrete used - ill find out - rebar was not recommended - keep in mind that this was done on the cheap by my brother - after the digging - pouring - labor and cost of concrete and materials so far - my cost now is 2500 bucks - brother did a lot of it at cost on his part - only paid laborers and materials - probably 1k more left in retaining wall - terracing and some planting - and a fence and gate - maybe 1500

Neighbor across the road just had new driveway poured. They used a fiberglass reinforced concrete mix.
He is a retired mechanic from our local TWA/American overhaul base, and was telling me that they used this fiberglass reinforced mixture for the concrete there at the base where they drive the airplanes across. Of course....it's a wee bit thicker too......

I have torn out conc. with fiberglass mesh, had to saw cut to break apart,. rebar breaks easily plus does not stop cracking. I have used conc w/fiberglass mesh in center of unheated horse barns with no cracking, some runs 12ft.60ft. with out expansion joints always broomed surface to create surface that horses won't slip and fall, never ever use in stalls only rubber mats. 1 barn had $55,000 mare other show horses owner very happy with mesh conc. Plus side less costs & labor costs.
