  1. So I am looking for about 30-35 cheap poles for my fence I don't mind those solid green T posts TSC sells but my dad says they are flimsey but I can't afford poles that are 6 bucks a piece is there any ideas for a cheap sturdy pole ?

    For fencepost, I'm using landscape timbers that are $2 each at Lowes. You'll need some staple nails, but that's what works best for me.

    I do have the heavy steel T-posts from TSC around my garden. They have held up quite well, though I use wood posts on the 4 corners and at the gate. Seems the Lowes T-posts are a softer material that may not take a lot of continual stress.
