How do you brace a sagging fence post?

Start by breaking up the old concrete footing with a 3-pound sledgehammer and cold chisel. If other posts are also leaning, break the footing around them, too. Drive a stake into the ground to brace the fence, and then screw the stake to the brace with a single screw. Plumb the fence, and then clamp it to the brace.

Concrete is the most secure material for setting fence posts, especially if you have sandy soil. Gravel may be okay with dense, clay-heavy soil, but in looser soil, concrete is the only thing that will truly keep your fence posts stuck in place.

How do you fix concrete fence posts?

Dig the first fence post hole 2ft feet deep. Make the hole roughly a spades' width wide so that you have space to put concrete around all sides of the post. Place the fence post into the hole and fill it with concrete.
