Are you struggling to decide on the type of fencing you want? We are always happy to advise you. As a quick pointer, here is the most popular fences and why they’re typically used.
Close board fences – These are created using feather edge wooden boards, which are strong and solid. They are commonly used in back gardens and are ideal for most people as they offer good privacy and deter intruders.
Larch lap fencing – These are a cheaper alternative to close board fences and are made of horizontal flats. They aren’t as strong, but can provide good value for money, especially when used with concrete posts to offer it extra support.
Picket fencing – This is for people going for a more traditional look. It won’t provide much in the way of privacy or stop intruders and dogs, however they can be stylish additions to your garden. If you’re a more sociable-type that likes to chat to your neighbours, then this could be for you!
Hit and miss fencing – Panels will be fixed alternately on the front and back of the fence panel. Due to the gaps between the panels, they can be very effective at withstanding strong winds and are one of the sturdier options you could go for.
