*Standard treated home-grown softwood fence posts set in concrete can last up to ten years on average when not susceptible to damp conditions. Superior timber treatments may last longer. Concrete fence posts can last longer than 20 years but commonly fail due to frost damage and or corrosion of the reinforcing bars.
