750 Fence & Gate Designs – The Ultimate Guide To Fencing!

It's a fence, not a kitchen!The construction of fencing and gates involves the use of water resistant timbers. Most fencing and gates are constructed from Hardwood or Treated Wood.

Fencing is designed to be quick and easy to install and the materials are designed to be inexpensive. This is because most fences are quite large and need to be erected quickly.

For these reasons fencing woods are often prone to expansion and contraction due to exposure to the elements. The timbers used are sufficiently treated or primed to last a long time outdoors, however it does come at a cost!

It's a fence, not a kitchen!Wood used for fencing is often sawn (rough grade) and is farmed with a short turnaround of about 7 years. The finish is not as smooth as seasoned lumber and therefore cannot be finished to the same degree as you would expect in your kitchen!

It is not advisable to sand treated timbers as this just releases a fine sawdust into the air where it can be inhaled.
For those who like to D.I.Y. we have assembled construction guides for all styles of fencing gates and retaining walls.

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.

Retaining Walls Made Easy!

 

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.
