Waney/Rustic Fence Panels

Closeboard Fencing

These panels are a bit of a step up from the aforementioned Waney Panel. The Closeboard Fence Panels are created by vertically mounting thicker feather edge boards (Feather edge boards are available upon request, pending lead times) to supporting horizontal back rails. For both privacy and strength, the boards are overlapping in one direction.

Slatted Fence Panels

Slatted fence panels are a modern, contemporary choice that has become more popular over recent years. For this fencing style, it features wooden slats that are placed horizontally along the frame with a small space left between each, making it a favoured choice for when partitioning areas in your garden space.

The primary benefit of the slatted fence panels is that due to the spacing between the slats, higher winds have less impact, helping the fence prevent damage and improving it’s life span.
