As you can see from this pic, the concrete post is leaning to the left, producing a slight gap between the post and panel at the bottom and an even bigger one at the top.
(ignore the missing half panel on the left)
The post was like this when I moved in. The last occupants had gotten round the gap by attaching another piece of wood to the side of the panel to make it wider, but now Ive got new panels, really I would like the job done properly and the post aligning correctly. BUT it appears to be embedded in concrete (not sure if its quite visible in the pic), which is also covering the bases of the concrete gravel boards which the fence panels are sat on.
Digging this out is going to be a major pain, owing the the neighbour having stuff stored next to the fence which cannot be easily moved (Im sure you can see the weatherproof outdoor box next to the fence).
So, is it a case of digging down 2 feet and getting the old grinder with diamond cutting disc out to remove the excess concrete?
Thanks in advance, I look forward to your suggestions, but not the subsequent task of sorting this out :(
