Solid Wood Gate by All Day FencingWood gates are easy to build and install!  All materials can be purchased from your local lumberyard.

There are 2 main types of gate construction.The first makes use of a ‘Z’ frame for strength with wood pickets or panelling on the face. The frame can be viewed from the rear of the Z Frame Wood Gategate. ‘Z’ frame gates are cheap and easy to build. The frame can be made from wood or steel depending on the size required. Driveway gates or large gates should have a steel backing frame for added strength. Pedestrian gates, or driveway gates over 1.5m wide should be fitted with a steel backing frame. Peestrian gates that are in high use areas (such as clubs, tennis courts, sportsfield etc) should be constructed with a steel frame.

County Swimming Pool LawsCounty Swimming Pool Fence LawsLocal counties control the guidelines and consent for swimming pool fencing. Various materials and designs must comply with county requirements on safety.

Generally, pool fencing and gates must be at least 4′ (1.2m) high from the outside ground level, and can contain no foot holds. Gates must be fitted including approved child safety catches. Vertical picket fences must only have a top and bottom rail and the pickets must be spaced no further apart than 4″ (110mm).
County Swimming Pool Fence Laws
Do I need a pool fence? This used to depend on when your pool was built.

All swimming pools no matter what age MUST have a child-proof and secure pool fence and gate/s.

The fence and gate must be a child resistant pool fence that complies with the local Standard for “Fences and Gates for Swimming Pools”.

Tubular aluminium, treated wood, steel and glass make the best pool fences although any sturdy structure that satifies the conditions and regulations can be used

How high can I build my fence?How high can I build my fence?How high can I build my fencing?

After careful research it seems the height of the fence is limited to 6′ (1.8m). This applies to the side fencing behind the building line and the rear fence. The height of 1.8m is taken from the side of the fence that has the higher ground level.   

The side fence in front of the building line, and the front fence is limited to 4′ (1.2m) in most cases. Some areas have existing fences that exceed these measurements. In this case it is reasonable to assume that you would be allowed to build a fence to the same height as your neighbors, or what is most common in your street.

How high can I build my fence?For side and rear fences various privacy concerns may come into play. If you have a problem with the fence not offering sufficient privacy from neighboring windows you may wish to build your fence higher than 6′. In most cases you can speak to your neighbor and agree on a higher fence to protect the privacy of both parties. Privacy is a two way concern, if you find you have a privacy problem, your neighbor probably feels the same.

If in the event that you cannot agree with your neighbour regarding the fence height the simplest solution is to plant a natural fence or privacy screen using hedging plants. You can also ecourage the growth on top of the fence with trellis or wire supports.

Replacing an existing fence. You do not need to seek prior approval from the local council to replace a fence of the same size and built using similar materials. If you wish to replace a fence with a higher structure you should seek advice from your local council.

Some counties do not allow fencing in front of the building line. This is designed to protect open areas. Please check with your local county authority before proceeding. Check on the guidelines for your local county here… www.alldayfencing.com/adfcouncil.php.

Pressure treated wood is wood that has undergone a process to make it more durable so that it is not susceptible to water, rot, termites, or fungus.

If you are looking to build something that will last, consider the advantages of using pressure treated wood. This wood is available at most lumberyards and home improvement centers. Just look for a stamp or tag of approval by the American Wood-Preservers Association</a></b> (AWPA) or the www.alsc.org,  American Lumber Standards Committee (ALSC).

Are treated timbers dangerous around children?

Generally treated timbers are not dangerous around children. Treated timbers are primarily used for decks, pergolas, fences and gates, power poles and many other outdoor structures.

Treated timbers are not dangerous to children if used in these appplications. However treated timbers should not be used for things like chopping boards where the chemical can contaminate the food. For this reason I would not use treated timbers for childrens play sheds or furnature.

More information on treated timbers can be found at our website www.alldayfencing.com/adfinfo.php.


Avoid Neighbor Disputes with these carefully written letters you can download and print.

Avoid Neighbor Disputes!

The answer is Yes.

The question of fences is, surprisingly, such an important one that it warrants its own legislation,

The Dividing Fences Act

Some blocks of land may have their own positive building covenants which require the erection of quite specific fencing. This might occur in a new estate where the developer is trying to achieve a consistent look to the overall design.

Most commonly, a covenant in relation to fencing will be one put on by the developer, stating that the owner can’t ask the developer to contribute to the cost.

Cut and paste the letters you require, print and send!

Cut and paste the letters you require, print and send!

The general rule with dividing fences is that the neighbors split the cost 50/50. If both neighbors can agree on the location, style and cost, then they can simply proceed. It is, however, desirable to record the agreement in writing. 

So, if you are required to have a fence what type of fence is sufficient?

 A “sufficient fence” is:

a fence prescribed by a local government local law;
a fence of any standard agreed upon by adjoining owners provided that it does not fall below the standard  rescribed by the relevant local government local law;
a substantial fence that is ordinarily capable of resisting the trespass of cattle and sheep; or
a fence determined by a Magistrate in a Magistrates Court to be a sufficient fence.
Note: A fence which accords with (c) or (d) is only a sufficient fence where no local law or agreement is made.

Local County Fence Controls

Local County Fence Controls

If you decide to erect a dividing fence of a higher standard than a sufficient fence without obtaining the agreement of the adjoining owner, you may only claim half the cost of erecting and maintaining a sufficient fence, as defined above.

Neighbor disputes over fencing are common. Most stem from poor communication between the neighbors. It is highly advised that the neighbors are informed of every step and where possible have some input into the design, height required or materials used.

The best way to avoid fencing and neighbor disputes is to send a carefully written letter to your neighbor informing them of your intentions and their responsibilities.

They restrain tons of saturated soil that would otherwise slump and slide away from a foundation or damage the surrounding landscape.
Retaining walls are designed to compliment the landscape as well as providing structural strength and drainage solutions.

These handsome barriers also make inviting spots to sit, and can increase usable yard space by terracing sloped properties, something that is increasingly important as flat home sites become ever more scarce in many regions.
Along with sloped landscapes where water runoff causes hillside erosion, ideal locations for a retaining wall include spots downhill from soil fault lines and where the downhill side of a foundation is losing supporting soil or its uphill side is under pressure from sliding soil.
