I am really pleased with the job - we have had some unexpected niggles, and Michael was always available on the phone to explain and arrange to fix them, and get his team in. (I have been working and not on site - I trusted them to get on with the job whilst I was a work - and they did). The end result is great - on time, at the quoted price, and looks excellent. I would definitely use Michael's firm in the future.

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?
