Wooden fencing

Fencing is important for a number of reasons but often it’s simply used to either keep people or animals out, or keep them in. Fencing acts as a border for gardens and private land, with a range of styles and designs to create an aesthetic appeal at the same time.

For domestic use, fences tend to be decorative for the front of your home and large borders in the back garden. With a fence, it all depends on what application it will serve to how it looks.

Benefits for home fencing

The benefits for home wooden fencing will vary for many properties depending on what need it must serve.

However, some of the top advantages include:

  • Additional home security

Fences act as a border to our homes and with an installation you’ll add security to your home and prevent easy access to your back garden. Back garden fences are traditionally around six feet high, which instantly makes it harder for intruders to gain access. Decoration isn’t seen as important, although there are many styles to choose from. And of course, over time you can paint the fence for a redecoration purpose.

  • Decoration

Decorative fences or wooden picket fencing are often most appropriate for the front garden, where security isn’t as paramount. Instead, you’re more likely to opt for a front garden fence specifically for decoration and to add something different. They won’t be particularly high and wooden fence posts are normally spread out, rather than appearing as a solid block.

  • Keep animals in or out

Keeping animals in or out of your property is another popular incentive for having a new fence fitted. Dogs in particular are prone to escaping, so solid, sturdy wooden fence panels is a necessity to keep them in. In a similar way, the fence will keep other people’s animals out.

Wooden fencing FAQs

Do I need planning permission for fences?

Not if they are under 1 metre high if next to a road or 2 metres high elsewhere. It’s always recommended to check with your neighbours and the local authority if you are unsure. Other restrictions may apply, for example if a fence might impact driver visibility on nearby roads.

Do I need to tell my neighbours if I’m going to replace my fence?

It’s a good idea to talk to your neighbours before you start any work to avoid confusion along the way. But if the fence is definitely your responsibility and on your property, there’s no legal obligation to notify them. It’s also a myth that you need to erect a fence with the flush side without posts facing your neighbour’s property.

How to tell which fence is yours

If there’s a fence dividing yours and your neighbour’s properties that needs maintaining or replacing, you’ll want to know who owns it. Start by checking your deeds to see if there’s an existing boundary agreement. If there isn’t, have a chat with them to see if you can come to an arrangement yourselves.

What do I need to do to maintain my fence?

Properly erected fences shouldn’t require a great deal of maintenance. Any rotting boards can usually be replaced without replacing the whole panel. Timber fencing should be stained every 2-3 years. General maintenance is something you can carry out yourself, however, larger works may need a qualified professional to come in.

Do I need to dispose of the old fencing myself?

Most responsible contractors will dispose of the old fencing via an approved commercial waste site. Do check that the cost of taking rubbish away is included in the quotes you receive, otherwise you might find you get stung when it comes to paying for the work.

What types of garden fencing are available?

There are quite a few different types of garden fencing that are readily available, so you’ll have plenty to choose from. If you’ve got a strict budget, waney edge panel fencing is a good option. It’s made up of horizontal wood strips and is generally the cheapest type of fencing. Another good option is closed feather-edge panels. These are a really strong type of fence, made up of concrete posts and panels of vertical strips of wood. You can also get more decorative types of fencing with combinations of vertical and horizontal wood strips.

How do I find out who owns a fence?

Speaking to the owners of the neighbouring properties is recommended. If you are still unsure, you may need to check the original deeds to the property. Generally the rule is that you are responsible for the fence at the right hand side of your property.

What is the cheapest fence to install?

The cheapest fence to install is, generally, a pressure-treated pine wooden fence at around £20 per linear foot. This includes the materials and labour costs. Wire fencing is technically cheaper at around £5 per foot, but it’s not a great material to use in homes as it looks unsightly and doesn’t provide any privacy.
