    Hi all,

    Newbie DIY-er. First time looking into DIY, I’ve only ever known how to fix teeth and can’t seem to work this out

    Any advice on how to secure this fence and post. At the moment the gate has been tied on one side and is preventing it from falling down. The post on the right of the gate need securing - what would be the best way to do this and most cost effective?

    Tia

    It's hard to see what's going on

    If the existing concrete posts are ok I would replace /fix the last one so that the fence to the left of the picture is stable.

    I can't see where the gate is hinged.

    Thanks for the reply,

    sorry the pictures and explanation were not the best!

    the concrete posts are fine, its the wooden post left of the gate which was moved and needs securing.

    I think I may just have to replace the wooden post left of the gate.

    I’d replace it with a concrete post and bolt a piece of wood into it for the gate.
