Be a Post Master, Installing Deck and Fencing Posts
You don't need much equipment to lay out posts for an outdoor structure. For an easy way to visualize its size and shape, use a tape measure and a garden hose to outline your project's dimensions on the ground. Then gather some 1x2 lumber and cut it into 3' lengths for "batterboards." You also will need a heavy hammer to drive the upright stakes into the ground, a drill and 11/2" deck screws for quick assembly, a plumb bob, and a spool of mason's string.
