High winds continually flattened the old panel fence, the low level wall was a security risk and the metal gate had rusted shut
The high winds – now not a problem. We built a feather edge fence instead of the old panels. Those big 4” posts will withstand anything and the solid frame construction gives it massive strength
Pic Gate & Over wall
Also, by using feather edge we could raise it above the wall to create one continuous line. The old gate – angle grinded off and a new gate with security bolts top and bottom fitted

Rustic’ style of the existing fence
What I can only describe as the ‘Rustic’ style of the existing fence – ie worn out.
Voile! A new fence that will last. There was an added problem however on this one. The neighbours garden was 1m lower than Rhiannas and the soil was crumbling. We fitted a gravel board retainer to the base of the fence to hold the soil back with the timber-lined with a damp proof membrane so the damp soil wouldn’t rot the wood.
Post & Rail Fence for Jill in Bath
Jill lives in an amazing house in Coombe Down but its on the edge of an old quarry with a 20′ drop. Not ideal for the grandkids so we built a post & rail fence along the edge for safety.
Picket Fence for Mike Bath
With such an amazing view Mike wanted a low level fence to keep the dog in without spoiling the view so this Picket style was the ideal solution.
Concrete Posts for Rianna Clevedon
Rianna’s garden – 3 fences blown down in high winds and she had enough. We used concrete posts as the solution. A fence falls down usually due to the posts rotting with typical lifespan of 10yrs. Concrete posts never rot. The main drawback is cost – 3x more expensive and not as attractive but they will last a lifetime.
A Rustic Fence for Anna Long Ashton
This rustic ‘Hurdle’ fence fitted in brilliantly at Anna’s period property in Long Ashton.
Hit & Miss Fencing
‘Hit & Miss’ fencing is quite contemporary at the moment. It gives privacy but allows the eye to glimpse through, in this case painted a shade of light grey with gate matching the style of the side panels.
