Gravel Boards and Fence Posts
Closeboard and panel fences are popular choices for a garden. They offer privacy and a smart finish to delineate your boundary and give security as well. They can act as a background for planting and it’s easy to grow climbing plants or shrubs in front of your fences to give a softer look.
To finish off your fence, you’ll need gravel boards. These are the boards that run horizontally along the bottom of a fence. They give a neat appearance and can be used on ground that is uneven to ensure there are no gaps at the bottom. Wooden boards look nice in a rural setting and of course they are treated to ensure they are long-lasting, but because they will be in contact with soil, they will eventually rot. That’s why concrete gravel boards are popular, since they have a very long, maintenance-free life.
You’ll also need to make a decision about the type of posts you want for your fence. Concrete fence posts are a popular choice because of their durability. They are always concreted into the ground to give a stable base for your fencing.
Or you may prefer the softer appearance of wooden posts, which may or may not be concreted, depending on the ground and the position of your wooden fence.
