A: Hello David, Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. Unfortunately, we only carry the YARDGARD 1-5/8 in. x 1.5/8 in. x 8 ft. 16-Gauge Galvanized Steel Fence Line Post, Grey in single's at this time. For any other questions, please call us at HomeDepot.com Customer Service 800-430-3376. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.
A: 8 or 9 I think
A: It was over a year ago and I do not remember the cost, but I can tell you that the pipe was much less rigid than I hoped for. I used it for a fence post and had to reinforce it even though I put it in concrete
A: I am not sure about environmentally safe. They would degrade I imagine to some degree over several years. However I don't think It would be enough to be a problem especially if you put gravel under and around the post down 2 to 3 feet, or put them in concrete I can't think they would degrade enough to harm anyone. That being said I am not a chemist. I am a metal worker and have seen galvanized ductwork installed outdoors exposed to the elements for decades with no evident degradation.
A: This is not an answer to the question, but a follow up, as I was also wondering if it would be safe to use in a vegetable garden since this item has a Prop 65 Warning? I’m seeing the Prop 65 warning with galvanized steel products as well as stakes specifically made for vegetable gardening. For instance, the Ultamato tomato support by Gardener’s Blue Ribbon (contains leaday produce dust with lead) as well as Vigoro’s Heavy Duty plastic coated steel stakes (may cause reproductive harm).
A: Yes. They should work well for that. No worry of rust or corrosion
A: They are galvanized metal poles...i have never heard of any negative impact on galvanized poles on anything. I set an entire growing trellis with these poles and chain link fencing for my wife's bitter melon, no issues with that at all. Never any issues anywhere in the yard as fencing neither.
A: Hello Ed, thank you for your question. These posts should be safe for a garden fence. I am curious what type of garden fence you are installing. I ask because we do supply U-Posts and T-Posts for garden fencing. These are easier to install and can be removed after each season. Most garden fencing does not require the strength of a Line Post. Regards, your YardGard support team.
A: I doubt that any study has been conducted on this topic. However, the fence post is probably made from iron with a zinc coating to prevent or slow down rust. In any outdoor enviornment the post will degrade very slowly (read many decades) into iron oxide and zinc oxide. Iron oxide is commonly called rust. Most garden tools produce small amounts of rust into the soil. This may be beneficial for certain vegetables? Zinc oxide is a common ingredient in sun screen and is said to be dangerous only when inhaled as a powder. This is not likely in sunscreen or in a garden. I have bigger worries than this.
A: As long as you don't put a lot of tension on the chain link fabric.
A: For use a a line post, yes. Not a corner or and end post like for a gate or any other termination post. The general weight bearing on a line post is vertical where as a termination post it is a combination of vertical and horizontal load bearing.
A: Hello Wayne, thank you for your question. Yes, this line post will work based on the description of your application. Regards, your YardGard support team.
