Combined fences with brick pillars have recommended themselves as reliable protection and aesthetic appearance. There are several types of such enclosing elements.
The foundation for the combined fences
Before the construction of the fence, it is necessary to prepare the foundation - the foundation. It serves as a support structure, distributes brick pillars between the fence sections evenly along the entire perimeter and additionally increases rigidity and strength, preventing sinking and collapsing. Under the fences with brick pillars fit different types of foundation.
It is used only under the support - pillars. To install such a foundation, you need to drill a hole in the ground to the depth of soil freezing (over 3 meters). Then place the pipe in it in an upright position, which is selected for the base of the brick pillar. To make such a support more durable and reliable, you can place the fittings in the pipe and pour concrete mix. After this, it is necessary to secure the post with struts and leave it for some time until the concrete solution hardens completely. This type of foundation is suitable for a fence with non-heavy sections, for example, from a profiled sheet or chain-link mesh. And it can be applied only on a stable ground.
As a foundation casting use cement brand M-400. He has established himself as the most durable and reliable material. Possesses the increased resistance to external influences, in particular to strong winter frosts. It is necessary to prepare concrete mix for the basis in the quantity necessary for filling of a trench before hardening. To determine the exact volume of the solution, multiply the width and length of the foundation by its height. It is necessary to leave a small amount of the mixture with the expectation of its shrinkage during tamping.
When preparing the solution, you need to mix one part of cement and two parts of sand and gravel, then pour these components with cold water and mix in a concrete mixer.
In modern times there are many types of bricks, which are used in the construction of various structures, including fences. The most popular among them are the following types.
It is made from quartz sand. It has high strength. For a variety of decorative properties in its manufacture used various dyes. The surface of such a brick can be smooth or russified, for example, imitating a broken stone. Its dimensions can be any, and the filling method can be hollow or corpulent. These properties affect the price of the material. Thanks to the even edges and edges of this type of brick, the laying of the pillars is neat.

It should be noted that the wooden filler (fence) should be thick and double-sided, since thin slats will look ridiculous against the background of massive pillars.
Fence with brick pillars and metal picket fence
A fence made of metal picket fence with brick pillars is suitable for both fencing summer cottages and for elite cottages. Such material is in great demand, as well as a professional flooring. Thanks to their construction and light weight, installation work is easy. Convenient to carry. Large selection of color palette and the ability to choose material with imitation under the tree. Does not require additional metal care.
Before proceeding to construction, it is necessary to determine the boundaries of the fence and mark the location of the supports. At the selected site you need to pull the tailings cord. The gap for future gates and doors is determined in advance, as there will be a need to perform double reinforcement due to the high load on the gates.
A fence with brick pillars is considered a massive and heavy construction, it should contain metal pillars. Three-meter pipes with a diameter of 63–73 mm are suitable for a conventional span, and supports with a diameter of 73 to 90 mm and a length of more than three meters are installed for the gate.
