Hi all, can anyone advise the best way to re-set 2 of my fence posts which are leaning towards next doors garden a bit please? There are about 8 posts and 2 near the centre are about 6 and 8 inches out of line at the highest point on the post. Should I get the posts completely replaced or would it be a bodge to remove the panels, manoeuvre them back to plumb position and fill the gap which appears with either postcrete or a loose cement mix?
Any help appreciated smile

Remove them and redig the hole clearing all the material out and reset in fresh concrete. Anything else will be temporary imo

The posts will have a big clump of concrete attached though won't they?
