A: Hi Tonya. Thank you for shopping at The Home Depot. Yes, the vinyl posts are hollow. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC
A: my handyman cemented the vinyl post into the ground, as if we did not it would have been 2' taller than the panels. It was strong without wood needed. I have a partial fence we put in over 20 years ago that still is holding up very well.
A: Hi Cheryl, please reference the installation guide for more information regarding the post install.
A: It depends how you want to install your fence and you can do it either way. The wood post inside would add support but it’s perfectly fine to cement just the post into the ground. With our fence we only used wood to support inside on the posts that the gate attached to.
A: Hello, it does not need one.
