Still wanting the beauty of a wooden fence but needing to keep the timber protected from damp and boggy conditions in this garden meant looking at combining timber panels and concrete posts and gravel boards for a solution that would last for many years to come.
About the product
Called in to replace a rotten fence and needing to find a solution that would work best with damp and boggy conditions, local network installer DBS Landscapes recommended the use of concrete posts and concrete gravel boards to prevent any future damage caused by the ground conditions.
The customer specifically wanted a fence that was stronger and tidier than the old panels. He also didn’t want the fence to exceed 6’ in height so 5’6” high, heavy duty closeboard panels were chosen to finish the installation.
The new fencing was constructed using 10’ and 8’ concrete slotted posts (the longer posts to overcome less stable ground), 6” concrete gravel boards, Postmix rapid setting concrete and 6’ x 5’6” closeboard panels. Closeboard fencing panels are designed to look like closeboard fencing without the need for additional rails and the assembly of individual pales.
These heavy duty panels, offer quick and easy installation, as well as being cost effective and are available in five different sizes and in two different treatments. The concrete posts and gravel boards from Cheltenham fencing are part of their full range designed to compliment any installation.
Good to know:
Closeboard fence panels are supplied with a 10 year product guarantee.
