Advice on Erecting a Close Board Fence

Firstly you need to order you posts, rails and boards which can be done online through this website.


The posts are placed at a standard of 1.80m centres and inserted to a depth of 600mm (maybe more, depending on ground conditions).


The rails are attached to the posts horizontally with nails at suitable height intervals. Rails are usually supplied in 3.60m lengths to span 2 bays. Two rails are recommended for small heights (upto 1.50m) then 3 or 4 rails for higher fences.


The boards are supplied in 2 main widths (100mm or 150mm) and are nailed to the rails. Boards are fixed either butt jointed for close boarded fences or with upto a 25mm gap for areas with high winds.
