Closeboard fencing is one of the most popular fencing types among our customers and across the UK, and it’s easy to see why. It’s known for its strength and versatility, as well as the classic design. This type of fencing is built using vertical featheredge boards that partially overlap for privacy and stability. These are then fixed to horizontal boards behind. It is the most efficient way to build a wooden fence.
Ease of repair: individual boards are easily replaced and repaired over time without having to remove entire fence panels.
Sizing options: this type of fence can be built to practically any height and length
Longevity: the featheredge boards that make up Closeboard fencing are pressure treated, meaning that they last longer
Versatility: Closeboard fences can be built on slopes and on practically any ground
While Closeboard fencing is very durable and long-lasting, there are ways to extend its life even further and reduce the ongoing cost of maintenance. You can do this by using concrete posts when building the fence, as well as concrete gravel boards. These materials come into the most prolonged contact with moisture and degrade slower than wood, so your fence will last longer and any components that do need replacing will all be well above ground level. Plant Fencing supplies and installs everything you need to complete your fence, including gravel boards, posts, accessories, and panels or boards.
