I'm having my garden landscaped at the minute. As part of the job I'm having approx 100ft of fencing installed down one side.
The landscaper has got someone else in to do the fencing and they've installed a wooden post one where all the slats are put on vertically individually to create a seamless fence as you look at it from my side. That was a week ago. Yesterday in not very strong winds approx 5m of it has blown down.
My questions are, they have only put horizontal fixing battens top and bottom. Should there be a middle batten?
They have fixed the fencing back with nails. Surely screws would be stronger?
The nails have already loosened in other places I can see and just looks a bit of a bodge.
Also as the fence runs up a slope there are huge gaps under the weather board supporting it. I've been promised these gaps will be filled but I can't see how they will achieve this?
The landscaper is back on site tomorrow and I could do with some feedback to give to him. I think it's been poorly constructed from the start and needs taking down and starting again.
The landscaper reckons the fence has already taken a day longer than anticipated so I'm pretty sure he's not gonna be up for that idea.
Is be grateful of any feedback thanks.
