Feather edge and tongue and groove fence and gates

Adding privacy and security to this previously open garden in St Andrews, Bristol

Deadlock fitted to tongue and groove gate

What was the project?

This customer wanted to add a little more privacy and security to their garden.

We secured a previously open passageway by fitting a very sturdy, double sided, tongue and groove fence. A round topped tongue and grove gate was fitting including heavy duty quality hinges, latches and a deadlock.

Passers by could easily look over the wall into the garden. To solve this we fitted a feather edge fence along the top of the wall.

At the bottom of the garden the driveway needed new gates. We fitted double gates on 6 inch posts including heavy duty bolts latches and deadlocks.

Featheredge fence in Chew Valley

Replacing an old straggly hedge with smart new 5ft fence

What was the project?

 

The boundary hedge between two properties had become old, straggly and full of holes. Certainly not a good barrier for the neighbours dog.

The customer had removed the old hedge ready for us to get in and do our part (I did get the feeling they wished they had left it to us though)

We installed a 5ft featheredge fence with gravel boards and a capping rail. We used chunky 4×5 inch posts which will ensure this fence stays put for many years to come.

What was the project?

 

The old fence at this property was on its last legs, just about held up by the shrubs and trees around it.

We pulled out all of the old panels and posts (you’ll be surprised how hard it can be to get out a rotten post sometimes)

It was quite a challenge working around the mature fruit trees and shrubs in the customers garden. Not only that, but the dense hedge on the other side.

We fitted new 8ft concrete posts and gravel boards. The panels we fitted come with a 10 year guarantee from the manufacturer. Even after this the joy of well fitted concrete posts is that when the panels do eventually reach the end of their life. Slide out the old ones and straight in with new.

A simple job that got unexpectedly complicated

What was the project?

To replace some old panels and rotten timber fence posts. Simple replacement job back in with concrete posts, and overlap panels.

Then it got complicated.

Having removed the old fence we started digging the holes for the new posts. A few holes down we dropped in the posts. Quickly realising there was no way we could match the existing fence line that continued down the garden. Turned out the old fence was about a foot into the customers property and the neighbour had laid a concrete slab the other side.

The job was abandoned for the day while the customer and neighbour discussed the way forward.

Two days later we were back and cutting the concrete slab back to the correct boundary. Correct boundary reinstated and a perfectly straight fence fitted. Nothing that annoys me more than a wobbly fence line.

Featheredge fence and trellis in St George

This very unusual shaped garden led to some interesting fence angles.

What was the project?

Fit a new 6ft featheredge fence with trellis at one end. This project had a few challenges, the very unusually shaped garden and a buried wall.

This garden had been squeezed in between existing houses. The “side” we fenced actually had 6 sides. To fit the fence and still make it look good required lots of unusual angled mitre cuts, and far more posts than a fence of this length would usually have.

When we started digging the holes for the posts we found there used to be a wall along the fence line. For every post we had to get through 2 layers of bricks, a concrete foundation and hardcore. The project still came in on time and on budget.
