About Closeboard Fencing

A neatly constructed run of closeboard fencing can add a bit of class and sophistication to your garden. As with most fences, the closeboard fence is available in different heights, and can be designed to “fit” your space.

Also known as feather edge fending, closeboard fencing is a common type of fencing used on property boundaries due to its height and ease of maintenance. At approximately 6ft high it gives a feeling of privacy. Closeboard fencing is renowned for its strength and versatility without sacrificing its appearance.

Formed of sawn timber, with feather edge boards arrange vertically, closeboard fencing is supported by horizontal arris rails with gravel boards at the base. Closeboard fencing may also be finished using a counter rail and a capping rail, making for an elegant finish while also adding further protection to the top of the fence. The gravel boards serve to prevent rot by stopping the feather boards from touching the ground.

Popular for its attractive design and superior strength, traditional closeboard fencing has been around for years – and for good reason.
