    Hi, just looking at fencing & Is there a strong quality concrete fence post or any to avoid. I am looking to have posts at 6 foot with the bottom 2' as concrete kick boards to hold back some earth back, so i am assuming an 8' post for this. But whats a good post??? Thanks'

    I don't remember ever seeing a branded concrete post so it comes
    down to the fencing suppliers' good virtue.( ! ).
    I believe the smoother cast posts and spurs we now use , repel
    moisture better than past castings. They seemed to spall more.

    Think there all much of a muchness to be honest. I buy all my fencing from Lawsons. Not cheap but always good quality. I would imagine their suppliers change over time due to availability and price. As chillimonster says, they’re not sold branded so what you get is likely to change over time. They’ll all outlast most of us anyway.
