Burying the anchors

The posts of the arbor can be set in concrete or—more easily—metal anchors that are driven into the ground. Place the arbor where it will go and mark the location of the posts. Fit a length of post stock into each anchor and use a sledgehammer to drive the stock and anchor into the ground (right). Continue until the top end of each anchor is near the ground. Make sure the tops of the four anchors are all level. Remove the post stock from the anchors and insert the posts.
