Close board fencing ( feather edge )  £3520
The fencing will be approximately 32 metres long. Dismantle and prepare the area ready for the new fencing to be erected. Supply and fit new fencing as we discussed. The new fencing will be 6ft high and will be made using concrete posts with 3 Harris rails. The new fence will then have feather edge boards fitted with a top capping. The fence will also have a timber which runs along the bottom of the fence which protects all of the individual feather edge boards from drawing moisture from the ground. PLEASE NOTE: Knots,splits,shakes and some movement can occur which we cannot prevent. This is not considered to be a defect of the timber as it is a natural product. All of the timber that we use is all fully pressure treated which gives the Timber a much longer lifespan.
