Fencing is very versatile, it can service a number of uses. It can mark the boundary of a property, if privacy is an important factor then a solid fence can be erected. Fencing can also be used as an internal feature – screening unsightly objects or segregating sections of the garden.
The choice of fencing materials is vast. The basic materials are wood and concrete, you can use these materials in a wide variety of ways:-
Closeboard Fencing – Closeboard is the strongest of all closed wooden fences, It is built to last decades. It is more expensive than panel fencing or interwoven fencing. It is usually constructed on site from a kit, although ready made panels are available. When the pales are attached to the frame they can be butted (edge to edge) or feather edged (over lapped). Capping rail is fixed onto the top of the fence to protect the pales from the rain and to give a professional finish. If you require a solid secure fence that will last then this is a great option, although expensive these fences really are built to last.
These fences are very common in urban areas of Reading, Newbury and Wokingham where security is a issue
Picket Fencing – Pales are rarely more than 3 – 4 foot high and are attached to 2 horizontal rails. The bottom of the pales should be 2 – 3 inches above the ground to avoid rotting.
Post and Rail Fencing – Post and rail fencing is often seen surrounding horse paddocks or on agricultural land. It is an ideal fencing for keeping something in or keeping something out. It is usually erected using a combination of half round post and rails or full post and rails. Wire fencing is commonly used in conjunction with it, usually running along the outside. This is more of an agricultural style of fencing commonly seen on farms in the more rural parts of Reading and Berkshire but it is now becoming more popular in suburbia as it gives a garden a more rustic less polished feel.
Chestnut Paling – This fencing is bought in a roll – the chestnut stakes are bound together by horizontal lengths of twisted wire. It is not a particularly attractive fence but it is cheap and easy to erect. It can be camouflaged easily by planting shrubs in front of it.
Trellis – Trellis is made up of thin strips of wood (laths) arranged in a diamond or square pattern – it’s main use is to support climbing plants. It can be employed as an internal boundary fence.
Wire Fencing – Wire fencing is generally used to keep Dogs, Livestock, Rabbits, Horses and even Humans in or out of a certain area. It is attached to wooden posts, which are used to support and straign the wire. This enables the wire to be tight and secure.
