Customers often ask us how they can treat the chestnut stake to make it last as long as possible.
However, before treating the chestnut pile, it is necessary to ascertain the quality of the product by knowing its origin: the best chestnut grows in an acid soil with a little rainy climate and has a slow growth thus determining an early formation of the heartwood compared to the sapwood which makes it very resistant.
Chestnut is also an essence that contains tannin , a substance that naturally protects it from insects, fungi and molds and it is preferable to use the barked pole to prevent these from nesting under the bark.
For this reason, chestnut is not treated with salt-based impregnating agents (impregnated in an autoclave) since they are neither absorbed in depth nor are they necessary: a good natural chestnut pile is already destined to last many years .
In particularly humid soils, however, there may be a need to further protect it to give the pole a few more years of life. In this case, we recommend burning : a totally ecological ancient technique that involves the carbonization of the tip and the area in contact with the ground to make it unattractive to mold, fungi and insects.
We do not recommend the use of tar , which in addition to being polluting, has a short duration on the pole. Instead, the use of cooked linseed oil is recommended : a few passes over the whole pile and left to dry to form a protective film. It is a process to be repeated periodically. Finally, it is possible, for aesthetic reasons, to use flatting varnish for wood to give the preferred shade to the pole.
If you have to create a fence and you don’t know how to proceed to avoid doing a bad job … trust our advice!
The support poles of a fence must be firmly fixed to the ground in order not to fall in case of strong wind and precipitation.
First of all, wear gloves and protective glasses to avoid hurting yourself. Bring all the material you need to the place where you need to erect the fence.
Create a hole in the ground using a manual drill. Usually the poles, both of wood and metal, already have a point to be fixed to the ground; if not, make sure that your wooden poles are pointed.
you may find it advantageous to use motor drills that homogeneously move the soil at the same depth, so that the fence poles can then be planted more easily and precisely.
Choose possibly chestnut poles or similar entities, beat them with a sturdy and heavy club, planting them up to at least 30 – 40 cm deep.
Prepare the job
Take two poles and provisionally fix them to the ground, at the distance you want, then fix a wire at both ends. Proceed to make the holes following the thread, if you want you can add gravel in the holes.
In case you need to use poles for a metal fence, then these will already be prepared with the right holes. If you want the poles to be fixed in a stable way, you can fix them with concrete in the holes. To make the operation go well, wet the holes with water.
Finish the poles with a chainsaw in order to eliminate the pieces of wood that have been slapped by the beating, which could cause the pole to weaken and facilitate the rotting process with infiltration of rainwater.
Tie the end of the pole firmly with a round of iron wire that helps prevent the phenomenon of cracking, i.e. the detachment of the wood fibers in the longitudinal direction.
How to build a wooden fence like a mountain one?
The wooden fence , typical of the mountains, is nothing more than a series of repeating modules. Choose cypress, juniper or aromatic cedar because they do not rot easily and are not affected by parasites.
The entire structure must be supported by the uprights, which are the main elements and require holes at least 50-60 cm deep. They must then be approximately 10 cm higher than the whole fence. While the distance of the fence from the ground is recommended to be 5 cm.
Secure the posts in the holes with concrete. While this dries, fix the slats to the crosspieces, using the wood screws and L-shaped supports, making sure they are at the same height. Do this for modules. To assemble the fence it would be better to be two people. Then mount the gate, making sure it is well aligned (use the spirit level). Mount the hinges on the uprights, taking care to make signs where the holes are made. You can choose whether to put a gate closing and opening mechanism. Once all the work is completed, remember to pass the impregnator.
