Ends provide support to garden fences and perimeter fencing systems. The 1 5/8" end posts should have additional bracing to withstand the additional force the fencing and monofilament wire will put on the structure. One 1 5/8" brace post is attached to each end post at a 45-degree angle to provide strength and stability along the fence line. This end is an inside end which allows you to run your fencing all the way out to your property line.
Ends are an important element in a strong successful garden fence. It is strongly recommended to use an end when terminating a fence line. For smaller distances, the ends may not be necessary but are still recommended.
