Can you build a fence without sinking posts?

If you need a temporary fence or a border that you can move as needed, a quick way is to use concrete blocks. Attach a bracket to a concrete block that is heavy enough to hold the wood or other material you plan to use to build the fence. The posts can be mounted to the brackets and the fence finished from there.
