I have a small fence in my front yard, maybe 3 feet high. Its been here since we moved in and am deciding if I want to take it out completely. The problem is that there are two of the fence posts that have a slight bend in them from the snow in the winter being plowed up against it. Is there are a way that I can some how fix it?

And If I decide to take it out is there a way to remove the fence posts from the ground without tearing up the whole lawn? I thought about maybe cutting them just below the surface of the grass and putting some topsoil on top of it with some grass seed. Maybe you guys might have a better suggestion.

As the post will likely lean or bend again, I would suggest replacing both of them. I think this will last much longer. I tried to straighten and brace a corner post and after a few months the same thing happened. I am now replacing it. Wish I had done this the first time.
