Cedar Post Installation

November 6, 2016

A common question customers ask is “How should I install a cedar post for proper support of an arbor, mailbox post or lantern post.”
Our recommendation is to dig the hole a minimum of 24” deep (up to 30” deep) and twice as wide as the post itself. Then put gravel or crushed stone in the bottom of the hole, set the post, then backfill around the post with more gravel. This allows water to drain away from the post.

New England Woodworks products are professional grade and made of Western Red Cedar. Western Red Cedar is very stable and more rot resistant than other wood. However for in-ground we recommend adding protection by applying a New England Woodworks rubber protective post wrap around the product at ground level to keep moisture and bugs away.
