Traditional wooden fencing
When it comes to traditional fencing I can offer a number of different forms to suit various situations and purposes. Although usually associated with field boundaries, nowadays fencing can be used to create internal divisions within gardens and public spaces. These can create major structural barriers or more subtle visual ones, can be used as plant training structures or even just to add some height within gardens.
All the rustic wooden fencing I make is produced using sweet chestnut from a sustainable source as part of a woodland management plan. When freshly made/installed it will be a fairly light timber colour, but once exposed to daylight it will soon tone back and will eventually take on a lovely natural silvery grey patina.
Overview of what the different fences are and their uses
A relatively light weight but strong form of fencing. Ideally suited as a boundary fence or as an internal divider within a garden. Because of the weight, these can vary in height from 1 foot high to 6 feet, without becoming too visually over powering.
Cleft post and rail
A more substantial wooden fence that should last many years.
Paling or park fencing
A combination of the traditional cleft (split) post and rail fence and thin cleft pales (pickets) that gives the durability of the post and rail but with the extra pales makes it animal proof.
