Fencing Installation in Carmarthen

One of our customers has recently installed a Garden fence system using two materials that you wouldnt normally think would mix. ( Concrete posts, concrete gravel boards mixed with wooden panels ).


Wooden garden fences are both aesthetically pleasing and easy to work with. However the down side is that in time they can be prone to rotting and decaying at any point that the wood comes in direct contact with the ground.

So What are my fencing options ? Its quite simple.

There are three commonly used fencing post products available, these are -

  1. Wooden Fence posts.
  2. Plastic Fencing Posts.
  3. Concrete Posts.

Concrete fencing along with PVc fencing products offer a low maintenance alternative to wood hence aleviating issues with post snapping or breaking. Both offer a good alternative to timber fencing posts which is why in this instance Martin ( The fitter) has used the Concrete post with Wooden fencing panels. As you can see from the Garden fencing image the wooden panels at no point are coming in contact with the ground hence allowing air to circulate which will improve the durability of the fencing Panel over time.

There are however a few downsides of using concrete Fencing posts, these are - 

  • Concrete fences are much Harder to work with.
  • Concrete posts can be very heavy.
  • Concrete fencing components are generally More expensive to purchase.
  • Concrete fence posts Can be prone to cracking over time.
  • Concrete generally doesnt look as aesthetically pleasing.

However in this instance i think that Martin has designed a fence that not only looks good but that is also practical and durable. His remit from the customer was to install a fence that would last and he appears to have done this. Well done Martin keep the images coming and we will keep posting them on the Fencing news section of our website.
