We stock a comprehensive range of urban and farm fencing that can add so much value to your rural/lifestyle property. Fencing not only provides you and your animals security and privacy, it can also provide shelter from the elements.
Timber fences are both decorative and functional, and can enhance your home. It’s important, then, that your fence complements the style of your house. With any fencing, the wood you choose, as well as the method used to build it, determines its character. Good quality timber is crucial. Inferior materials deteriorate and at worst, collapse.
Use timber that has been treated to at least H3.2 standard for elements of the fence that are above the ground e.g. palings, railings etc. Use H4 treated timber for the elements of the fence that are to be placed in the ground e.g. posts. Protecting your fence with paint or stain is also advisable. The right tools make the job easier and help to ensure your structure turns out square, level and plumb. Timber posts set in concrete, with rails and vertical palings, is the typical New Zealand suburban fence. The basic post and rail fence is a starting point for most fences, including picket and paling fences.
