Pounding fence posts in winter?
This is probably a really dumb question but ... can you put in fence posts in the winter? We have to move one of our fence lines because of the outdoor arena we put in last fall. The new line has to go through a bit of bog, replacing a fenceline that goes through a lot of wetland and is just about falling over. I was wondering if fencers can use a pounder to drive the posts into frozen ground? Access would certainly be easier right now. The old line has small posts, so we will be using larger ones, and also spacing them closer together. And, naturally, if we get someone in to do that, might as well have them finish the fencing to close in a wooded area for them as well.
Will the posts just splinter if they are pounded into frozen ground?
