Base of foundation for a Vinyl Fencing

What is used to build the foundation for a vinyl fencing? Is there anything that the posts can slide into? Is this part that holds the posts available Home Depot? Do I need a concrete foundation?

Hello pepsy4u, and welcome to the community!

 

To build the foundation for the vinyl fence the key ingredient is the 4x4 pressure treated post that gets anchored into the ground with concrete, then the post is covered with a vinyl sleeve, seen below, and topped off with cap.

Make sure you follow local building code regarding the depth & diameter of hole, they may require the post to be set just below the frost line, and the post placed on a bed of gravel, 4-6" typically.
