Different types of fencing which we can undertake include:

Post and Rail

The most traditional and classic type of fencing, used by many country houses and equestrian establishments across the country. A mechanical post knocker is used to drive square posts into the ground followed by attaching between 2 and 5 rails depending on the type of livestock to be contained. Correctly installed post and rail fencing can last for more than 15 years. It is simple to repair and maintain, and provides a smart visual appearance as well as providing a safe environment for horses. We always use treated FSC certified timber and where required we can supply 15 year guarantee posts or creosote impregnated posts and rails which have a 30 year guarantee.

Small stretches as well as longer, more complex fence requirements are no problem. These include arenas, paddocks, driveways and track systems or to separate rights of way from livestock.

Our post and rail fencing is installed to a high standard, without compromise and using high specification quality materials. We are proud that it is one of our most popular fencing services. Additional features such as rabbit netting, gates, stiles, slip rails and water troughs can all be incorporated.

Wire Netting for Horses

Specifically designed for horses and foals and more cost effective than post and rail, this type of fencing is becoming increasingly popular.

We use the Tornado range of wire net which is strong, durable and available in a wide range of specifications to suit the application. It features solid vertical wires which are close spaced to help prevent damage to hooves, and the unobtrusive high pressure bonded Torus knot does not have any sharp edges.

It is manufactured with high tensile wire which strains tighter than mild steel and so requires fewer intermediate posts, making it quicker to erect. It does not stretch with weathering so does not need to be retightened annually.

To aid visual recognition of fence lines we can then add a single top rail or single or double strand of plain line wire.

Stock Fencing

As well as equestrian fencing we also supply and erect a wide range of livestock fencing including:

  • Cattle, sheep, deer and badger netting
  • Rabbit wire (pegged or buried)
  • Hen ranges

All are available with the option of 15 year guarantee posts and the choice of single or double barb, line wire or a top rail.

Gate Installation

There are few things worse than a badly hung or difficult to open gate! Gates provide a visual deterrent as well as a physical barrier to keep livestock in and unwanted visitors out.

We are able to supply and install galvanised steel and wooden gates suitable for livestock and arable fields, driveway entrances and pedestrian footpaths.
