At Broad Fencing we supply and erect a lot of standard garden fencing that is required to mark a boundary and stay up in a strong gale. That is why I usually recommend concrete posts and closeboard type fencing or panels. We also supply and erect a lot of non-standard fencing that is built on site to do a specific job, look more attractive or respond to a difficult site location.
The types of fencing we offer:
The ‘specific job’ could be an acoustic type fence to reduce noise from a nearby road. In this case the customer in Sudbury required a strong fence that was 2.4m high, would keep his dogs in and with access to the ditch on the other side of the fence for maintenance. We built a closeboard fence with tightly overlapping boards, 4 no. rails and 3.3m x 150 x 150mm posts for strength and a gravel board tight to the ground for the dogs. We installed an access gate and built this into the fence.
A more ‘attractive’ type of fence could be metal park railings traditionally seen outside country houses. The railings were originally used to keep livestock and deer in or out, without interfering with the view. They still fulfill this role and are good for dividing areas within a larger space whether it is for cattle or dogs. We can also install domestic metal gates to suit.

A ‘difficult location’ could mean that the area is low lying and wet, exposed and prone to gale force winds or uneven and difficult ground. In all cases careful consideration must be used when deciding on the specification of components and type of materials used.
If you want something a little bit different, whether it needs to be ‘easy on the eye’ or ‘strong as an ox’, then we can do it.
