The house has a removable section of fence, which is handy, but it's a little less than 8' wide, so not really large enough for a large truck or an RV. There's also an RV parking spot next to the detached office, but it's so narrow that you can't really get in and out, and anyway you couldn't open any RV popouts. So this project is to relocate the garden beds, and put in a 10' gate and a level parking spot. There's already a water pipe and an electrical outlet nearby, so it's a pretty good spot already.
This is the Location of the new Side Gate and parking spot in red. The existing 10' gate and pull in is in blue.
Side Gate Post Setup. This is a 10' long piece of 2.5" steel square tube with 3/16" wall. The post driver sitting on the ground on the right worked great for driving it in. You can also see the partially leveled parking spot in the foreground.
Side Gate Post Embedded. The PVC pipe next to it is the same length, so the difference is the embedment.
Side Gate Retaining Wall. The courses on this wall are pretty level.
