fencing questions


Postby User2050 » Tue Jun 28, 2011 11:39 am

Hi,

I am planning to put in some fencing in my garden. My only knowledge is there are two types of fencing materials: panels are cheaper, closeboards are more expensive.
Now I've got some quotes in. For 5 panels, all other contractors quote closeboard fencing about 200 - 300 quids more than the panel fencing. But one contractor quotes 450 quids more expensive.
I am now confused. Is there another type of panel which is cheaper than normal "panels", or is the closeboard panel a type more expensive than ordinary "closeboards"?
Anyone out here can give me some expert advice?

Also, I would like to know if there are various types of posts? Is timber post good enough for garden fencing?

Thanks for any help

the most sturdy and weather resistant is concrete posts with concrete gravel boards,and closeboard panels.The panels fit inside slotted concrete posts and the wood panels are off the ground making them less resistant to rot.
