Continuous run closeboard fencing that works well with changing ground levels... 

Closeboard Fencing is similar to panel fencing but come with the following benefits:

  • One side of the fence will not show the posts giving an attractive finish.
  • Each feather board is individually nailed on which means that the fence can follow the ground levels more easily without steps.
  • Flexible fencing option when infilling on brick wall pillars or short runs between buildings.
  • Feather boards come in different sizes so virtually any height fence (within planning regulations) is a possibility.
  • Posts can either be wood or concrete.

I wanted some of my patio removed and a concrete ramp built from my back door down to my gate. Tom arrived on time to give the quote which I was happy with, and as it was urgent I was booked in the same week for the works which I was pleased with. The guys who came to do the job were a bit late but were polite and friendly and kept me informed about what they were doing. Very pleased with the end result!

Very impressed with the landscaping job that Bobby, Harry and Dom did on our front and back patio. They really listened to and took on board our ideas and have improved the garden immeasurably. Good attention to detail, hard working and professional throughout. Fair price agreed with Tom, who was also a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend and would use again

Tom and the team did a great job at a good price. They were very quick to do the fence repair and it was completed to a very high standard. I was so pleased I got them back a week later to replace more panels.

Everything You Need to Know

Closeboard fencing comes with several options and features.

  • Posts can either be morticed (a cavity in the post where the rail sits to form a joint). Or they can have V shaped notches.
  • Fence capping can also be installed on top of the feather boards to provide weather protection.
  • Centre pegs can be installed in the centre of the bays to provide extra strength to the gravel boards (typically wooden).
  • Bays are normally 2.4 meters wide (as opposed to typical fence panels which are 1.8 meters). However, bays can be any length up to 2.4 meters as the rails are easily cut to size. This makes fencing around challenging terrains more simple than other options.
  • Trellis work can also be included as a decorative feature. Trellis fencing is legally considered the same as standard fencing, so no extra height can be gained using this option.

All wooden materials are pressure treated and come in a green or brown finish.

Under UK planning regulations, a solid fence panel can be no higher that 2 meters.
