Example Projects

There are numerous styles of fencing available. Modern fencing such as lap panels or close board fencing are functional, cheap and therefore very popular. Other styles range from old-fashioned post and rail fencing made from chestnut pales to woven willow hurdles crafted by coppice workers. I have constructed interesting bespoke fences using reclaimed floorboards from clients’ houses. I also make trellis panels in house as I find the ones bought from the DIY stores are very badly made.

As important as the fence barrier itself is the fence post! A fence will only be as strong as the post and it must be dropped in the ground as deep as reasonably possible. Typically I will dig a hole 1ft wide by 2.5ft deep and fill in with wet, sloppy concrete to help find its way into all sides of the hole.
