Oliver and Noel were first class form the first call to completion. They were prompt, reliable, courteous and excellent value. They replaced a trestle fence, lined with bamboo slats, added proper gate pots and rehung my gate. Proper tradesmen. They saved as much of the Jasmine and Ceanothus as possible and the whole thing looks fabulous.

Very happy with our new fence! The quality of materials, work and the professionalism were excellent. Would gladly have Dumitru’s team back to do more in the garden. Great value too given how much work the guys did and the excellent state they left the garden in after finishing

More than happy to give Dave a 5 star rating. A very competent tradesman, honest in his pricing and thoroughly knowledgeable about his trade. The job became challenging due to the weather conditions but Dave soldiered on and completed the job on time and to the quoted price. The site was cleared and cleaned on completion. A very good worker and I would highly recommend.

My husband and I can not express enough how happy we are with Marcin's and Mike's work. They both worked very hard from the day one and always tided up after work. They pay great attention to details. Originally, we have contracted them to fit Vellux windows but as their work was exceptional we have asked them to renovate our apartment. We were very lucky to find them and we will certainly use them again in the future. We would highly recommend them!

Wooden / Metal / Wire Fences specialists - what you need to know

Fences can be fitted in a range of different styles to suit a range of different needs. The right fence can create useful borders, provide security or offer privacy from neighbours. Or, you might simply be looking to section off areas of your garden, creating specific spots for vegetable patches or play equipment. Whatever your needs, a gardener can help you choose the best material and design, to make sure your fence serves its purpose, looks good, and blends in with its surroundings.

Wood fencing is most popular for domestic use, with panels inserted into the ground, usually at a depth of about 45cm. Wood is more affordable and less imposing than its heavier weight counterparts but will vary depending on the height of your fence and the quality of wood used. Once installed, your gardener can paint and seal the panels to suit your taste. Wooden fences can fall foul of bad weather and local wildlife from time to time, so some moderate upkeep will be required over the years.

Chain link fencing serves as an excellent deterrent for thieves or vandals and will be of interest to those seeking a fence for security purposes. These fences comprise metal chains that have been meshed together and attached to concrete (or sometimes metal) stability poles. They are commonly used to enclose recreational spaces or sports facilities, such as tennis courts. While fairly unsightly in their naked state, they can be painted to soften the overall look.

Metal fences range from aluminium to wrought iron. Aluminium is a relatively low maintenance option and is considered a good and attractive alternative to wire. It’s not recommended for areas where severe weather is an issue. 

Wrought iron allows for more intricate or bold designs but will require significant upkeep. A fence of this kind will need to be sanded and repainted every two to three years, so it's important to take this into consideration when choosing materials.

Offering solid security, wire is more commonly used for industrial fencing. You may opt for square mesh or netting, with gardeners increasingly recommending a PVC coating. This coating protects your wire against the elements, prevents rusting and offers slightly more choice in terms of colour and finish.

If properly installed, a fence can last a lifetime, so it's important to choose the right gardener - and ask the right questions.

If your fence will be dividing your property from that of a neighbour's, it's common courtesy to consult them before any work begins.

Cost of fencing work

Various factors can impact the overall cost of your fence. The number of panels / posts, the material used and the condition of the ground will all affect quotes. Occasionally work is needed to prepare the ground, prior to installing the fence, which will increase labour costs. Your gardener will almost certainly charge more for painting and sealing.

Costs do not usually include the disposal of old fencing, so if this applies be sure to ask your gardener to consider this in their calculation.

The qualifications your tradesperson needs

No specific qualifications are required of a gardener but some will have experience with Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Certificates in Practical Horticulture.

You may be just as happy to choose your gardener based on personal recommendation. It's always a good idea to ask for examples of previous work.

Planning permission for fencing jobs

If your fence forms a boundary with a listed building or land, you’ll need planning permission. Permission will also be needed if your fence is over 2 metres high, or runs alongside a public footpath or highway. More detailed information can be found on the Planning Portal.

Insurance for fencing work

All reputable tradespeople will have Public Liability Insurance, as standard. No additional insurance is needed for fence installation.

Questions you should ask your tradesperson

  1. Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
  2. How long is my fence guaranteed for?
  3. How much will you charge to fix the fence or replace any damaged panels?
