Our business started in 1997 with stock fencing contracts from the National Trust in West Penwith to enable grazing for nature conservation. We also provide the countryside and conservation sector with a range of services including the following. 

  • Specialist fencing on conservation and archaeological sites.
  • Wood and metal self-closing and 2-way opening gates.
  • Gates hung on existing granite posts.
  • Timber stiles and kissing gates.
  • Japanese knotweed control.
  • Footpath trimming, firebreak and scrub clearance.
  • Waymarks, and fingerposts.
  • Hottentot fig, rhododendron and other invasive species removal.

Conservation Fencing

Coming from a background in conservation and with qualifications in countryside management we understand many of the issues surrounding the introduction of grazing and the provision of fencing on sensitive and public sites in the countryside.  Our philosophy is that the ideal fence should fill the criteria below;

  • Low visibility in the landscape.
  • Non polluting materials & working practices.
  • Installed with the minimum of ground disturbance.
  • Minimum disturbance and obstruction to wildlife.
  • Competitive cost.
  • Respect visitor safety at access points.
  • Very closely follow any existing boundaries.
  • Be an effective & durable barrier for the grazing animals.

Our solutions;

  • We use only sweet chestnut fencing materials. An untreated natural product from UK sustainable coppices, this timber has a long life expectancy. It is supplied as de-barked fence posts and stakes with a mottled almost camouflaged appearance which greatly reduces their visually impact. It weathers down over a short time to a muted shade which blends well with natural backgrounds and can become virtually invisible from a moderate distance. Strainer/strut assemblies and intermediate post diameters are kept low - a balance between reduced visibility and structural integrity. Cutting off post tops or morticing staining posts does not compromise the posts resistance to rot unlike pressure treated materials where the protection is only in the surface layer.
  • Our fences weave and dip following the boundary lines. In open country we will build sweeping curves and a meandering line to break up the visual impact of straight lines in the countryside.
  • Wire height over undulating ground is carefully placed (within tolerances) to achive a flowing line and not a zig-zag which draws the eye.
  • This attention to the look of the fencing doesn’t cost any extra. The time taken to install a flowing fence line is the same as a straight fence line. Our prices remain competitive.
  • A low ground pressure post driving machine is used on sensitive sites and driving over or placing posts in archaeological features is avoided at all costs. Fencing using hand tools only is done on very sensitive sites or where machinery access is not possible.
  • Rules on fence line clearance in the bird nesting season are observed.
  • Even with a meandering fence wire tension is never compromised. Wire is high tensile which is better at retaining tension over time.
  • On existing softwood fences we offer an affordable camouflage spray paint service using water based eco friendly timber paints.
