Jump to the Beginning
Seventh, it may be useful to cement in and level your two terminal or corner posts first, before further building, so you can install a string line near the tops of these two. This way you can stretch a string barely touching the top of these two to get straight posts in between.
Cement your posts and level them side to side and have them not quite touch the string line now stretched across the tops.
If your building a wooden fence line that is spanning a longer distance or if the wind is blowing the string, you may need to “sight” in a pole, in the center, and either tack the line to it or just let the wind blow it against the sighted in post.
Make sure your galvanized posts or wooden posts are all leveled side to side and in-line. You can usually do a fair job of "sighting in" posts in-line, however, side-to-side you will need to use a short level.
You can continue this when building the other lines of fencing. Just be cautious about using the freshly cemented posts for stretching a string line across the tops for the next line of fencing.
You can easily use a screw in the top of a newly installed wooden panel or the neighbors old wooden fence to run your string line.
Usually it would be safer to let the concrete cure at least two days if you have never done this before.
If it is really warm in the summers and not windy the next day, you may get away with installing the wooden privacy panels the next day. But, it is best to wait two days. Concrete will cure much slower in the winter, so you may safe to wait up to three days before building.
