Basic Cost Information

So, at this point, you might be considering installing fencing in your garden but are wondering how much of an investment that will require on your part. This article will help you understand what the requirements are, as well as the main expenses you need to prepare for.

Main intervening factors           

The cost of installing a fence will largely depend on a series of variables and intervening factors, such as:

  • Type of fencing;
  • Size and location;
  • Type of materials used;
  • Other necessary services.

There are many different types of fencing you can choose from, and all will have different costs due to the types of fence panels used. Here we will present and discuss the 3 most common types.

Fencing can be purchased and installed by board or by panel (which is comprised of several already constructed and enclosed boards). Purchase by panel is the most common, and the costs may vary greatly depending on the other factors.

Lap panel fencing

Lap fence panels, also known as overlap fence panels, are ideal to be used for security, privacy and creating boundaries around your property. Along with close board fence panels, lap fence panels are among the most used types of fencing across the UK.

Lap fence panels are composed of horizontal overlapping boards and are slightly cheaper than close board fence panels. A lap fence panel can cost more than £20, depending on the size and type of material.

Close board fencing

Also known as feather edge fencing, close board fencing is probably the most solid and durable type of fencing, and the one that provides better privacy, security and sturdiness. Close board fencing panels are made up of vertical boards tightly close together and slightly overlapping, not allowing for a single gap between boards. In this way, no pets or children will trespass/escape, no undesired sunlight will enter your garden and your property boundaries will be well set.

The price of a close board panel can start from £30 but always depends on factors such as the type and size of the materials used.
