This is a good method. I worked with a crew that put in a lot of
posts and they started off doing it the way they were told, but
eventually learned to do it this way. So easy.
It was probably not overkill in this situation, but when I took out
one of my 4" round fence posts because it broke, I saw that there was
no cement around it. But all the posts are fine, except one that
leaned over a little. I removed the upper rail and used a come-along
to straighten the post, then nailed the upper rail back on. I gues
if there had been cement, it wouldn't have tipped and I couldn't have
moved it back. One post out of 40 or so is not bad.
