One of our favourite choices for a hardy fence that will stand the test of time, can be erected in varying heights and widths, with each run not being governed by standard fence panel size, it is also very versatile.
Concrete gravel boards and posts will stand the test of time the posts are slotted so the panels can easily be changed.
Small picket fences can be a good idea in the front of your property to define your boundary, they can also be good to keep dogs in an area of your garden.
Depending on the weight of your gates they may require some heavy duty piers to hang on, steel beams inside the pier which the hinges will be welded too are the answer, piers can be built in brickwork, blockwork or walling.

This is the million dollar question and it really boils down to personal opinion, pressure treated fencing left to season will eventually turn a silvery pewter colour and won’t need any additional treatment. Colouring with paint or stain is likely to elongate the life of untreated and treated woods but will need a regular application to ensure an even colour and protection due to sun bleaching and fading.
Yes and no, yes because they won’t rot, but wooden posts do look much nicer.
My personal opinion is a close board fence, it’s much stronger than panels and look so much better. Concrete posts and gravel boards can be used with close board and counter rail and capping really set it off, we use 2 bags of postcrete around each post so there’s no way the fence will move.
